    Default Weird camera problem

    My camera started some funky stuff...
    When I open my camera, there is a soft static sound, and the view is all wavy... Even the pics come out wavy...
    Any thoughts?

    Was there an earthquake going on? Gave me a headache looking at that pic! Try doing a simulated battery pull and see if that helps!

    Not sure how to do that lol....
    This is the first phone I've had that I couldn't actually pull the battery.

    Could there be an effect set on the camera that's causing the wavy effect on the pictures? Or maybe something on the lens causing it to be distorted? It almost looks like looking through a windshield in the heavy rain with the wipers off.

    Hope you figure it out!!!

    I've reset the camera options to default, and made sure the lenses were clean.
    What really makes me think the camera is just faulty is the faint static noise when I'm focusing on something.

    Maybe download Google Camera and see if it does the same thing.

    What it looks like, is that the two cams are out of sync. The smaller cam is used for measurements in relation to depth. If I'm right, a 3rd party app will work normally because it doesn't use the Duo cam. Regardless of what is causing it, you'll likely need it fixed/replaced.
