    Default Note 3 rear camera not focusing

    Hi,

    My camera was working great for the past few weeks. Since couple of days, for no reason the rear camera is not focusing on objects correctly except for close up shots. The front camera is fine. Irrespective of the lighting conditions, the camera does not focus and is extremely blurry. Its like the camera is on perpetual "macro" mode. All my software are up to date and I have tried rebooting the phone many times. Nothing works..

    I even tried searching this forum (albeit went only 20 pages). I am not sure if this is a software or hardware problem. Please help

    Thanks

    Try tapping the screen and see if it focuses. You may have turned off auto focus

    I have tried that as well as resetting the camera settings. Nothing seems to work. Or rather when I had taken to service center it worked!! And the back to square one. The close up shots works fine.. Nothing else.

    I'm thinking if you took it to service center and it worked fine and when you left it did not work again it must be user error.. Could be wrong but to me that's a viable deduction.. Go back and see if they make it work again and If it does ask them to show you what your doing wrong.

    I have the same issue from time to time, it's quite frustrating. I've shut off all special features in an attempt to get the camera to work properly. What irritates me is that sometimes it works flawlessly, and then other times it's just extremely buggy and won't focus to save its own life.

    I took my camera to a Samsung repair shop in New Eltham, SE London. They were brilliant, less than half an hour later I had my camera returned to me, now focusing properly. (I was told by the repair place in Islington that it would take 'weeks'.)

    I'm very pleased I held off rooting my phone for so long. (A day after the repair, I thought I would take the risk, so I've since rooted.)
