    Camera version:

    12.0.01.17

    It was working perfectly before the update.

    So i checked out my camera last night to find i couldn't disable night mode as i couldn't find an option in both camera or phone settings unless it's automatically switches to night mode.

    Whenever i take a picture, it's a black screen even with flash. Went outside & still black.

    I thought it would resolve the issue today but still stuck in night mode.

    Here's some of the suggestions & possible solutions i've tried to no avail:

    - Cleared camera cache & data.
    - Hard reset.
    - Increased camera & phone brightness.
    - Went into phone settings. Switched between light and dark & went into dark mode settings. Switched between "sunset to sunrise" & custom schedule.
    - Attempted to "fool" the camera by changing the clock to daytime.
    - Downloaded two camera apps & the same still happens. Black screen.

    Don't know what else i can do other than a factory reset which i don't want to do & even then, it may not help.

    Would appreciate any & all help with my issue. Hopefully it can be resolved.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to Android Central! When you say "hard reset," I assume you mean a hard reboot (i.e., power off and power on), right? "Hard reset" usually means a factory data reset, but you already mentioned you haven't done that yet.

    Try wiping the cache partition: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...ung-galaxy-s10

    Welcome to AC!
    If factory reset doesn't help then hardware issue which means repair center

    This was an official system update pushed over-the-air, or did you download it from a website and install it manually?

    So does anyone have any idea what my issue could be? Incompatible hardware conflicting with the last update?

    You would have to try
    1 factory reset
    2 flash to Andriod 11
    3 if those don't do it , repair shop .

    Settings>Privacy>Camera Access was disabled after the update! I feel embarrassed that it turned out to be a simple solution. One last thank you for all of your suggestions and advice.

    I had this problem as well. I expected that if I picked NIGHT I would get a menu to leave Night Mode, but it did nothing. It turns out the back button exits Night Mode. Maybe this is common knowledge, but I didn't expect it.
