    Default "Unfortunately the camera has stopped working"...

    Hey guys,

    So I just bought a Galaxy Gear watch a few weeks ago and I just love it. The only problem I am having is that my camera stopped working about a week after I got it. Everytime I attempt to turn it on all I get is 15 seconds of black screen and then a message that says "Unfortunately the camera has stopped working" . I have already reset the gear twice and made sure I have the most recent update...neither of those fixed my problem. I have not been able to use it and was hoping someone here would have a miracle answer to help me fix the problem.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Did you fix the problem?
    I had the same problem earlier! And I got it fixed!

    Just go to:
    - settings
    - application manager
    - scroll to "ALL"
    - find "CAMERA"
    - click on CLEAR CACHE and CLEAR DATA
    -click OKAY despite the warnings (TRUST ME)
    -restart your phone


    Now check your camera again (crossing my fingers for you)

    Ive tried that a million times and no success, ive even changed out the camera module. This is depressing Ive had this phone that i bought brand new for over 7 months now and the camera hasnt worked for 6 months. Like i said i have tried every trick in the internet.

    You can go in and clear the cache, but it only works then for maybe 2 days and you have to do it again, and again, and again.

    REMOVE snapchat- that gave me about a week between restarts; but it still gets screwed up.

    There is a BUG in our phones and Verizon doesn't want you to know until you do a factory reset and try every option. They will send you a brand new phone if you bother them enough. I don't want a new phone tho, I hate that pain of doing all my settings/contacts again even tho they are backed up; it's never the same!

    In that case, it's most likely a hardware problem (with the camera and/or the motherboard), or a corrupt firmware. Either way, you'll probably have to bring it to a repair shop (or contact HTC if it's still under warranty).

    This seems like an hardware problem. Don't try to fix it urself as that may damage your device even further. Best course of action here would be to bring it to the repair shop (warranty or no warranty).
