    Hello guys, I have a LG G3 with android 5.0 installed, bought it new one year ago. No issues until a week ago where I opened the gallery and realised that I did have many black photos taken, like while having it in the pocket, then opened Camera and reveived a message “Unfortunately camera has stopped”. Rebooted but again the same message. After a few hours the back camera did work but I noticed that the camera switch Icon was missing. No drops or something. Just happened.

    Have already tried to:
    -Factory reset
    -Hard reset from manufacture menu
    -Restore from Backup
    -Delete cache/data from Camera and/or Gallery
    -Download other camera apps
    -Use Messenger Skype Viber etc.
    Nothing works. Its like the system doesnt recognise the that theres another camera there.

    There is not the option to return the phone cause I live in different country now.

    I would prefer not to root mostly because I am not familiar with the procedure and I cannot afford to buy new phone in case something goes really wrong.

    Please if someone would suggest any ideas, I would be grateful. Thank you!

    The camera module - a piece of hardware mounted on the motherboard - has stopped working, just as it says. That means that you need a new camera module. Depending on how much the repair shop will charge to replace it, it may be as cheap, or cheaper, to replace the phone.
