    The camera on my LG Nexus 5 has stopped working. When I attempt to use the camera the back-up image of my own face appears briefly then the camera shuts down stating 'camera has stopped working' and 'report' 'ok'.

    Obviously reporting the issue does nothing so I tried a factory reset.

    Now the camera app has disappeared altogether and strangely the torch function has gone too (the torch icon has actually disappeared from the drop down menu!)

    Anyway, I next tried using a different camera app - 'A Better Camera' seemed to have good reviews, but it just does the same - briefly shows an image from the secondary camera then shuts down.

    I have tried some other camera apps but with the same result.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A hardware failure perhaps? Testing via the Service Menu may help determine that.
