    It maybe as easy as turning off the device and turning it on again. That may reset the camera.

    Is it telling you to restart the camera app, restart the phone, or is the camera app unable to initialize?

    I'm having similar problems. No image on camera, just blank screen. Even restarting phone doesn't help now. Wonder what is the issue? Any help?

    Have you tried using a third-party camera app?

    I'm having the same issue and it's really starting to **** me off. Any of my apps that have to do with the camera I can not use! I just did the update a couple days ago and it started yesterday so I wonder if that has something to do with it

    Hi, in that case what I did was simply installing some third party camera from play store.That's it, my camera started working.
    Later its left to your choice whether to keep such TP camera remain installed or not.
    But your camera remains in working condition only even after un installation of such TP camera.
    Opt for this only in case your camera did not work even after re starting your phone.

    I am having the same issue with my Droid Razr Maxx. The screen is black when I open the camera, I get the error to restart camera. This just started happening. I can not take any pictures even with other camera programs. The front facing camera works fine. I have cleared cache through boot menu and done a hard reset on the phone, with no luck in fixing this camera issue.

    Help restart the camera
    Same problem here for quite some time. I was planning on getting the Note 7,but we all know how that went. Not sure if it's possible software or hardware , but it's time to jump ship as there will be no updates for this series of phones. However, since I've done everything I can software wise many times over, I may still try and purchase a camera for repair as I would like to have this phone as a backup. Now to continue playing the waiting game for my next phone. Oh, and the camera isn't the only thing wrong with my phone. 😈
