    I found Open Camera to work even better than Google Camera.

    I am facing the same problem in my new M note 4g. Front camera icon disappears in second when the camera mode on. After a second the icon disappears. Have you found to fix it / solution. Please advice.

    As a workaround- I have found that if I go into my camera icon, switch my camera to the video option from that screen, then I get to switch the camera in that screen from front facing to/from rear facing, and then when I switch back to camera mode, it stays in whichever mode I left it in when I switched back.

    I don't know how to fix this overall, but going into video mode lets me change which camera is being used.

    Good luck!

    Well....it seems there was an update that corrupted the camera. I haven't found a fix but only a workaround. As the person previous stated, slide to your video and the reverse option will appear. Select the reverse, then slide back to the camera and....tada! To return the camera back to the opposite way, perform the steps again. Stupid....I know....but it is only a workaround until another update is sent.

    If so, then your other icon is corrupt. Drag it to the trash and then replace it from the app drawer in the usual way.

    This worked for me, thanks!

    Hi! I had a same problem and wanted to solve this problem without send my phone to LG facility.
    I guessed it was kernel problem, so I flashed another kernel like elementalX. And it worked perfectly fine.

    Don't waste your time clearing your cache, etc. The problem was caused by a Google software update. LG can flash your system to restore it. If you didn't do the update, I think the system somehow deteriorated and you need to reload it anyway.

    hey whatsapp guys..I'm here
    to solve ..anyway its pretty
    simple lemme get straight to
    the point..
    wat you gotta do is:
    while your phone is ""on""
    -remove memory card and..
    -remove sim card (only if you
    sim is external or on a side
    slot) then..
    -switch off your phone
    completely and wait for about
    5 mins..
    -the moment the phone
    switches back on..quickly go
    to your camera option and
    click on it..
    (you have to be quick after its
    back on so that the phone
    gets confused with your quick
    moving and has no option but
    to bring the front camera
    back or watever it maybe
    ..and if you have any other
    similar issues ..please just do
    this same process again and
    it will work )..
    I'm not a technical phone man
    ..but I'm really good when it
    come to any tech..
    cheers guys if I have been of
    help ..let me know..

    I already got the answer to this problem all you need to do is go to settings/ then system/ then choose about phone/ and then choose software update service and continue to update your cellphone and wait for a minute. after all if your cellphone stock up try to move out the battery and put it back then switch on...... thats all

    Front camera doesn't work

    If none of the preceding posts is of any help, it may simply need replacing, though that would be surprising.

    I do tons of hangouts with my family and I noticed that I cant select the front camera anymore, just the rear or no camera. Today I looked into it a little further and now I dont have the front camera option within the camera application. It was there like 2 or 3 days ago. Anyone else have this problem I am on 4.4.2 for about a week now so I am not 100% sure it was that broke the front camera. Any advice before I have to wipe??
    Front camera options disappeared
