    Few days back, my phone's front camera stopped working. And today, this bug crept into the rear camera as well. Now, when I open ANY camera application, it either crashes or shows an error that the camera may be damaged.

    I tried clearing camera's cache, and even did a factory reset, but issue still persist. I can not even use phone's flash light. It shows a message "Camera in use".

    Looked for solutions online, but found none. Is there anything concrete anyone know about this problem?

    As there are lots of people mentioning this issue online, have there been any official communication from OnePlus team on this?

    FYI, I'm on Android 11
    Attached few screenshots showing the issue and current version.

    No, I didn't (intentionally)... I will install the ones as I need one by one. So, it can't be an issue due to any other application.

    My back camera works on Android 9 and 10.0.0 only on Android 11, it doesn't work, and the front camera doesn't work on all versions.

    I just tried same on my OnePlus 7 Pro. Back camera started working when I downgraded to Android 9, but front camera still doesn't work. Also, both cameras weren't working on Android 10 as well.

    Its a damn software issue. Never seen such a bug in a software that impacts users so badly. And surprisingly, there's no word from One Plus about the same. It has been around a month since these issues started.

    I have the same issue since a month now. This is so irritating. OnePlus must do something. It feels like they have short-changed us by creating issues which did not exist. At first, the front camera goes out without any physical damage, with back camera working just fine. Then the back camera along with flashlight goes off. Despite many attempts and resets, the camera just doesnt start working.

    We can live without clicking photographs or face unlock for few days, but what about:
    - not able to do payments using QR codes..
    - unable to scan documents..
    - no video calls, both personal and professional..
    - can't log into whatsapp on web..
    - can no longer use my phone's camera as my computer's webcam..

    These are blockers for me. It's strange that one plus is so slow in fixing such a critical problem.

    They don't respond here. Also, that user isn't anyone from the company, that's just a user who has the name.
