    Almost the problem will not be with the hardware. So, there must be something wrong with your phone's software itself. In your device, may be the camera application is corrupted. So to make it good, what all you have to do is, software update. By updating the software, the previous application will be removed and new one will be installed. So, get your phone to any reliable service and update the software there. I hope it works:-)

    Hello Guest,
    This happens when the media scan fails during startup of the phone. You can reboot your phone and try again. Now, the camera should work fine. However, if you still face the same problem then it is better to go to the nearest Samsung Service Centre. They will help you easily. Thank You. Hope that this solves your problem.

    It may be the case that your Camera app has got corrupted..
    or it has been affected from a virus..
    In that case.. try installing an antivirus app from Google Play..
    all the leading anti-virus developer companies have their app for Android as well.. Norton, Avast, Avira..
    Try Scanning your phone..
    It that doesn't help.. Reset your phone to Factory Settings.. be sure to create backup of phone data..
    If still problem is there.. then visit nearby Service center..

    Hello

    I think the software of camera is corrupted , not hardware because if hardware damages no camera display is shown . So go for Samsung customer care center and ask them to solve your problem , they will re install all software and your mobile will be fresh and definitely the problem will be solved.

    Hello

    I dont think its a hardware problem . Try downloading any camera app from the playstore. and check out if your camera works or not.

    If it does then your software might be corrupted. A factory reset will solve the problem.

    For that go to settings-->>backup and reset-->>factory reset-->>then tap on reset

    Back up all your data before a factory reset as everything will be back to the way when you purchased your phone.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    This might be a problem that is caused due to improper cache that is read by the camera and therefore making the camera application to fail so in order to make the camera application to work properly open the "Settings" application from the application drawer and then select the option as "Applications" there you will find an option as "Manage applications" select that and select the all tab applications there you will be able to find the camera application using that you can delete the data and cache of the camera application which will help in making the camera work. If that is not working then do a Factory reset by opening Settings and you can find the reset option under "Privacy".
    Hope this helps.
