Hi been having this new issue with my camera app where I click to open and it is like a black screen which then freezes (pictures attached), and when I try to wipe the cache partition I am unable to load it and on restart get a message "pdp backup fail setup-wizard finish"

Is there anyone can help with this as I have tried most things for both!

Thanks
Imran

Hey there Imran786!

Could you run a quick test? Dial *#0*#, and then test the Mega Cam and Front Cam options 🙂

Share the results back here.

All the best,
Tom 🙂

Hey again Imram!

Awesome! Doesn't seem like there's a hardware issue going on then.

Seeing as your clearing cache partition came back with an error, I'm gonna suggest performing a Factory Reset, as it sounds like a low-level firmware issue.

Before you reset your phone though, maybe try going into the App Info for Camera. Force Stop the app, clear the cache, and clear the app data. Try launching it again. If that doesn't solve the issue, try the reset.

Make sure you back everything up, note down your phone's passcode/PIN, and if you're using a microSD card, make sure it's unencrypted before you reset your phone.

Hope this helps,
Tom 🙂

Connect your phone to a PC using the USB cable and it will allow access to recovery.

Hey there Imran786,

Sorry to hear you're still having issues after a reset. I'm gonna suggest contacting Samsung's Customer Services to book your phone in for an examination - sounds like your camera module might be dodgy or in need of a firmware update.

Sorry I couldn't help, and all the best,
Tom 🙂
