    I'm in a bit of a pickle. Since a few days my camera stopped working as well as Snapchat and my flashlight. I have deleted all newly downloaded apps on my phone. I removed the cache and user data from the camera app. Tried the camera in safe mode but that didn't work.

    can anyone please help me? it's about the pup-up camera as well as the main camera. Thanks everyone!

    Hi, I am also facing the same problems in my OnePlus & Pro 12/256 after trying android 10 beta, my front+rear camera not working, only a full black screen appears when I open the camera app. Flash/Torchlight button on quick launch top bar also disabled (Grey), youtube start properly but not loading any video. I have again installed Android 10 official 10.3.2GM21AA, 10.3.6GM21AA but still, remain the same problem. I also did the full setup in Qualcomm QH9008 (EDL mode), link

    Safe mode, clear camera cash, disable, reset factory settings etc bla bla also no luch as mentioned in the link https://www.getdroidtips.com/how-to-fix-oneplus-7-pro-unfortunately-camera-has-stopped-error/

    Then i downgrade to android 9.5.1GM21AA, 9.5.13.GM21AA both cases my rear camera working, Flash/Torchlight and youtube also working fine. The only problem remains nothing happened when pressing to switch front (popup) camera. I have tried Gcams, and it crashes when switching to the front camera. Heres the link of downgrading to Stock android 9 ROM

    I have tried some other custom ROM Android 10 like Havoc OS 3.11, Lineage OS 17.1, Lineage OS 18.0 etc but still front+rear+flashlight not working.

    Is this problem related to Kernel? Android 9 Kernel version 4.14.83, and android Kernal higher versions 4.14.117, 4.14.200 etc.

    Does anybody have faced similar problem? I also check using CPUZ or AIDA64, it does not detect fron+real camera in Android 10, and in Android 9 detects real camera but unable to detect the front camera.

    So requesting to give a solution if anybody already has succeeded, seems its not hardware issue, as in that case rear camera also not working in Android 9. How to do a full/fresh Android setup as like manufacturers do? Is there any chance to do flashing using box (UFI etc) at the service shop?

    It's best you contact a service centre given the effort you've already been through.

    They'll be best able to guide you

    I have just been in contact with service centre as my front camera stopped working esp on face unlock. It pops up, and after a few seconds down but no selfie picture, just returns to home screen. Did factory reset but no improvement. They asked me to return it for repair. It has just gone off to Poland from Portugal via UPS. I didn't associate it with an update , nor the fact that my battery lasts less than 4 hours, which I thought was just a 1 year old battery that had been recharged too much!

    I met another person, who faced same issue. after android 10.3.7 update his both camera stopped working. then as per my suggestion downgraded to android 9.5.3 and then again both camera working. but if again android 10 update by OTA faced same camera not working issue. so it should be a software related problem for sure.

    I am too facing the same issue. It started with front camera and gradually the back camera too stopped working. I get a black screen and apps which use camera tend to hang if by chance I open their camera associated features. In the past few days I have observed few other apps too are not working like flash, YouTube is frozen, Phones message app hangs if i open any message. I have already tried clearing cache and even factory data reset but no help. Any suggestions what i can try more?
