Hi

Today my camera stopped working. I'm on a s10 plus. Mayor update this last night 

 

When opening the camera app it says error the camera doesn't work 

 

When opening on Facebook the front facing camera works but not the rear one.

 

When entering the menu via *#0*# and tries to check the camera it says the same kind of stuff 

 

Never never dropped the phone its brand new

 

Worked yesterday 

 

Tried everything soft reset hard reset canceling app remove cache and data updating g everything 

 

What happend?

 

Can you guys help me. Is this related to an update?

 

Take care

Hey @Kanefur! Make sure that the phone's software is up to date by heading to: Settings > Software Update > Download Updates Manually. Now, could you run a Hardware Test on the device? Go to: Samsung Members app > Press Get help > Press Interactive checks > Camera. Once completed, please share the results.

Hi @Samuel_1017. Do you also have the Galaxy S10 Plus, or a different phone model? Let's try a Hardware test to see if the issue is present during this. You can check this by going into the Phone app and dial *#0*# > Select 'Mega cam'. Do let us know how you get on during this.

@Samuel_1017: Thanks for giving this a go. Let's try clearing the cache and data from the Camera app. You can do this by going into Settings > Apps > 3 dots in top right > Show system apps > Find and select the app > Storage > Select 'Clear Cache' and 'Clear Data'.
