    I have a ZTE Blade A512. Yesterday night I tried to use its rear camera but it doesn't work. The screen is all black, and sometimes a thin line with different colours appears. I also tried to use the camera on whatsapp, instagram and other apps and still doesn't work. Does anyone know what it could be?

    It sounds to me like a bad rear camera module. But it could also be a bad part on the motherboard. If it doesn't work in Safe Mode, it has to go in for repair. (But the repair might cost as much as the phone - it's not an expensive phone.)

    Then it's headed for the repair shop. And if it's a bad motherboard, look around for a replacement phone and compare buying and repairing prices. (And see if the repair shop will give you anything for the old phone - labor doesn't cost them much, and a camera module is cheap. (Even a motherboard isn't too expensive with some phones, but for a US$100 phone, it might not pay for them to repair it either.)

    Thank you! I forgot to mention that, in fact, it fell on the day the camera stoped working. Can it be related?

    That's definitely an important piece of information. It reinforces the need for a repair shop.
