    Hello,

    I have a Samsung galaxy S2 Plus I9105 with Android 4.2.2.
    In the Camera application I cannot switch to front camera. When I press the Icon to switch to front camera, it stop for a second and show the back camera again.
    This is also true in Skype, which show the back camera only in video calls.

    I have tried to :
    Clear data of Camera app
    Clear data of Skype and also re install Skype
    Clear data of Google Framework Services
    Reset to factory settings

    Non have worked for me.

    Is this a hardware issue? The phone was not damaged in anyway and looks great.

    Thank you,
    Dror

    Hello gdmin,

    I was the one that asked the question and now that I register to AndroidCentral I am able to reply.

    You gave me an excellent tip...Thanks!
    When I enter the code and press the "front cam" button....I get "Warning - Camera Failed" with an OK confirmation.

    Any additional directive?

    Best regards,
    Dror

    That's a hardware issue...
    Bring your phone to service center or nearest repair shop.

    By the way the code i gave you (*#0*#) is also useful to verify the real samsung phone. The fake one doesn't have that test mode.
