    a few months ago my camera suddenly stopped working and now i can only use the camera on the screen side which i don't like and the button to change camera dissapeared. Ive reset my phone completely and that did nothing. A couple of weeks ago it suddenly worked again for a few days and then it stopped working all of a sudden again. Please help i'm getting really frustrated by it...

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? It sounds like you're actually referring to the rear-facing camera, which is the main one. The camera that faces you is the front-facing camera.

    If you actually did a factory reset and the problem still occurs, it might be a hardware failure. What happens if you try installing other camera apps available through the Play Store?

    Yeah this is really strange. I'm witnessing people have this problem:

    Can someone help explain to me what is causing camera launch failures on different brands of phones running Android 4.4.2, 4.4.3 and even 4.2.2?
    Does it have anything to do with firmware updates not being carried out ever? I ask because my 4.1.2 phone has never had the problem. I don't know if its because I updated my firmware not long after I got the phone. I really wanna help the troubled users of the cam-failing phones.
