    Hey I recently bought the OnePlus 5t and it was working fine,but now the camera app crashes and the back camera just shows a blank screen,I am able to use my front cam via third party apps,but back camera is completely not working.does anybody else face same problems and is there a solution? ( PS: I already cleared cache of camera app,wiped cache by pressing volume down and power button,used safe mode and also did a factory reset and it's still not working)

    Open a dialer, type code: *#808#
    It will take you to a factory testing menu. One of the options there is for testing the camera. Find it and test it.
    There's possibility that your camera module is just broken

    Starting today, I have the same problem. Rebooting the phone and shutting down and restarting the phone does not solve the issue. Using the system camera app I just see black behind the camera icons (see attached screenshot) and cannot switch to the front facing camera or gallery. After ~10s the camera app self closes. Using a 3rd party app (Camera ZOOM FX) I also get the black screen, but I am able to switch to the front facing camera.

    I have the same problem. I observed this issue not before update to Oreo. Actual Buildno installed is ONEPLUS A5010_43_180202.

    Edit: A reboot seems to help, but I observed that issue already twice. Dont want to reboot my smartphone everytime I am taking pictures though...

    I did the trick on the dialer to test and screen was still black however the tests still passed. Rebooting didn't work so went ahead and cleared cache and data of camera app. Reboot right after and now it works. :)

    To come back on my previous posts. I contacted one plus support and performed a hard reset, but this also did not resolve the issue. In the end I had to send it for repair and got it fixed under warranty. In the report I saw it was a faulty motherboard.. Hope you (and others) can resolve it more easily, otherwise just opt for repair under warranty.

    I have no idea what the price was TBH, I was not informed about the prices since the repair was within warranty.

    Bro mine got fixed under warranty.... I had exact same problem tried all kinds of reset bull shit nothing really worked.... Then went to the one plus showroom they said very strange things .... But atlast they tested all the internals and concluded the camera module was corrupted.... No mother board issues were found though (As it was mentioned up). Well mine was acclaimed through warranty .... If u don't have a warranty then you will have to pay around 3-3.5k I guess.....

    Hi !

    I have exactly the same problem, front camera is working. I tried *#808#, second back camera preview and front camera preview works but the others doesn't work...

    I tried, factory reset, cache, everything... I'm not under warranty and I don't want to pay if it's hardware problem. How have you solve this ?

    Thanks !

    No they said there is no issue with camera, so we need to replace the motherboard which will cost 20k

    There is no issue with the camera, but there is an issue with the motherboard. If everything is fine, then why your camera does not work?

    Hi, the problem has affected many phones by reading the comments, unfortunately my device is also out of warranty.
    Is there any way to use only the second real camera? An app? A modular?

    I have found a temporary solution. Typing * # 808 # allows the 2x camera to work. it is possible at that moment to take a screenshot or record a screen, capturing images and videos (the quality is poor).
