    When I first got this Galaxy S3 a week ago both the front and back camera worked. Not even a week later I was unable to take a picture. I got an error message 'Warning: Camera Failed' and it closed. I can't use the camera on other apps like Snapchat or Instagram. I was able to use the front facing camera for the 'face unlock' so it does work. I've cleared cache and data for the camera & gallery, factory reset, went into the 'system recovery' boot and wiped cache partition, formatted my memory card. I also did the diagnostic test menu and my front cam works but the 'mega cam', which I assume is the rear facing cam, says 'Camera Failed' again. Is there something I can try to fix it? Or is it something to do with the phone itself?

    Mine is doing the same and is is just a year old. I did a reset, go to settings and try, worked once but failed again so I'm waiting for a better answer.
