    My camera stopped working with a 'camera fail' notification. I also am unable to turn on or off the flashlight due to notification stating that the camera light is being used by another app. Due to trying to fix this issue, I have also reset settings and Instagram uses the drive instead of the stock gallery which will also not allow me to upload more than one photo. Please help! I've been trying so many different things !

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Some app you installed that has Camera permission is probably glitching and inappropriately keeping the camera occupied. See if the problem persists in Safe Mode. If it doesn't, then start uninstalling apps one by one until the problem goes away. Focus on apps that have Camera permission.

    If the camera module failed with the light held by the camera, it's going to stay that way until you have the camera module replaced.

    My camera says WARNING CAMERA FAILED as well as Cant turn on Flashlight. Camera light being used by other app. So far putting it into safe mode worked so I don't know what else the problem could be. Verizon Tech sent me to ASSURION and they are reviewing a claim to get a free phone now. Hopefully they figure out what happened

    if your phone was also getting extremely hot during that time cuz you got hacked someone was using your camera to look through and see the surroundings you should probably check to make sure you don't have an extra calculator in your apps usually an extra calculator means it's got hidden apps in it probably hacking apps
