Currently, almost all mobile phones, be it Android, iPhone, or Windows, are equipped with cameras to support user activities.




The average mobile phone of the current generation already has a large resolution and is close to perfect. The camera itself serves to take pictures or a moving event (video).


But what if your camera doesn't work or can't be used? If you are in this problem maybe this discussion is the answer! Well, see how to fix a cellphone camera that doesn't work in this discussion!


The cause of the cellphone camera not working


We need to know, there are several causes of camera problems that cannot be used on cellphones, as for the possible causes, namely;


camera app error; Usually a lot of garbage, so the camera performance is slow, it doesn't even work at all


Bug on Mobile system; Well, this problem is usually a friend's cellphone system that hasn't been updated, aka it's still old school

Damage to camera components.


 this happens can be caused by several causes such as due to a hard impact on your friend's cellphone, cellphones that enter the water causing a short circuit, and so on.


Actually, there are still many causes, but on average the problems above are experienced by some Android HP users, so we try to review these three problems.


Here's how to fix the rear and front camera of an Android cellphone that can't be used or not working or even missing.


Force Close and Clear Data


The first way is to find the earliest solution to deal with a camera that can't be used. Force close itself means to force stop and delete data is to clean cache and trash, here's how.


Open the "Settings" menu on your phone, by pressing the gear icon.


Then next buddy look for the Camera application with the words "Camera"

If you have found a friend, you can press the "Force Stop" or "Force Close" option, then click the "Clear Data" option.

We are sure you already know everything about restart but if not we will tell you i.e. by long pressing the Power button on the side of the phone -> Click on Restart/Reboot -> wait 5-10 minutes in off state -> turn the phone back on -> Open Camera .


Does it work? If it doesn't work, let's read the next steps below, pal!

If the above method still doesn't work, then we recommend that you try the next method, namely by installing a third-party application or camera application.


It can also help you if you want to recover lost rear camera, but not restore default app, but use third party camera app.


Don't get me wrong, although the camera is the default app for every phone, it turns out that the camera app is also available on the Play Store! You can download and install the camera app through the Google Play Store by entering the keyword "Camera app" and you will find a variety of apps. We recommend that you select the "Open Camera" application or you can click here. Or if you want to use the Google Camera Mod application you can use Gcam, we have made a way to install gcam for various types of Android phones in this article.


Android System Update


If the above doesn't work, you can also try updating your Android system. Well usually many of us are reluctant to update the system because it is considered not too important. But don't get me wrong! App updates are very useful to add and improve the performance of the engine on your phone! In addition, updates usually include system security updates. Here's how;


  • Go to Settings or Settings on your phone.
  • Scroll down and find the About Phone menu then click on it.
  • Well, if a system update is available, please download and update it, pals!


Reset or Factory Reset


Now this is the most extreme way if other methods don't work, but what you need to pay attention to before doing it is to backup all important data on your cellphone.
