    Not sure about that. For me it was an hardware issue. If you look at the picture in my previous message, you can see where was the problem.I changed the camera and then it works perfectly.

    It was working Ok from one week. Selfie, facial unlocked, back camera... all.
    Suddenly, the front camera started to fail... first, just open a half... then when press selfie button, cam app close. Back cam works Ok, App cam works ok in that moment.
    Back cam dosent works. Black screen. Flash fails. Youtube fails (always loading).

    I had the same issue, like everybody on this thread. I don't think that the last update of oxygenOS caused that. It doesn't work because the front camera doesn't last in time.

    Exactly my issue, for me after YouTube, message all also didn't work and the Amazon app also didn't work. It will either hang or be loading for long time.

    This is definitely not a hardware issue as most of the 7pro users facing same issue which is getting rectified after changing front camera for few which definitely conveys this is some serious bug.

    One plus has to come out and give a solution and not ask all users to change front camera at users cost

    I don't know. I tried everything (except the factory reset) and the camera wouldn't work. But I had the same issue that had everyone here and changing the camera solved that issue. It cost me only 1 hour and 20€.

    Did you tried to downgrade the version of Oxygen OS ? (I don't know if it's possible without rooting or unlocking thé bootloader)

    Ok so it's a software issue for apps and a hardware issue for front camera in the most cases I think.

    Actually I was able to roll back to Pie and everything seems to be working fine now other than the front camera. so it is definitely the software problem

    Hello, it's same for me. First there was problem with front camera then with rear camera and then the apps message, YouTube, Amazon. I had mailed to OnePlus before nothing is helping out they just asked me to go to their store. It's still there, I thought they would take this seriously but there is nothing from their end. Atleast their should be acknowledgement saying it's a bug or they are testing out or there is nothing like this etc but nothing it's worst. Man I don't understand how this happens for all at once. We need to make them respond for this, they should test out this things and atleast respond.

    In case anyone who is in dire need to use the back camera and don't want to wait until 1+ acknowledge the problems and finding solution, I was able get almost everything back to normal other than the pop-up camera by roll back to Pie.

    I followed instructions of the guy in the video and it is working.
    Just careful to backup so you don't lose any important data

    I am facing the same issue on OnePlus 7 Pro. My front camera stopped working after getting update 10.3.4 in August and now just after the latest update 10.3.6, my rear camera and flashlight also stopped working. Even after factory reset of phone, it is not working.

    I will never recommend anyone for buying OnePlus products anymore

    I'm waiting for android 11. I'm done with OnePlus, sad after 1 month without using this mobile and no news or comments by the company.
    I have recommended lot of times, and now I feel a dissapoint sensation.

    If it was a simple software problem everyone would be getting same error and only a few people are when you consider the number of oneplus phones are in use.
    I'd guess its a software conflict between apps.

    You could use Permissions Manager to find apps that use the camera, disable all apps that you can in the list, reboot phone and try camera.
    If it now works re_enable each app one at a time testing camera after each one.
    It may be that camera will carry on working after all apps have been re_enabled as the disabling may have freed up locked camera link.
    Just something worth trying imho
