    It isn't the same problem for everyone. I never downloaded any flashlight app for that matter. As I mentioned earlier I did a full factory reset while clearing all the partitions and didn't sign into my Google account so that the phone won't download any previous apps. Anyways, I went to att and the techs were fiddling with it for almost an hour with the Samsung techs as well. They gave up and just gave me a new one. Hope no one else gets this problem. Hopefully my new S5 doesn't do it again.
    it happened to me...removing the battery and putting it back in seemed to do the trick...so if it happens again try that

    Yeah I did the exact same thing; just rebooted my phone and now the camera works (no factory resetting involved)

    I am on my 3rd Galaxy S5 Active. My first one was brand new. Both replacements are obviously refurbs, since the Factory Samsung Galaxy S5 sticker is missing under the battery and replaced with a Generic Tag. I am quite upset about this, and am going to cause a ruckus. I am a Computer Information Systems Engineer, and we rely on very high quality cameras for multiple purposes. I did not get a $600-$700 phone to get it replaced once a month. Keeps it fresh I guess, but I am seriously debating on making an Image so I can flash my setup every time... This is ridiculous!! P.s. I have the Titanium Gray ATT variant, G870AS.

    Just uninstalled flash light and restarted the phone. And the problem was solved.

    Hi and thank you for your knowledge! I had the same problem with my Samsung 5 mini... I have this phone a year and this was the first time I got this message on my camera. I did as you said here and uninstalled Flashlight.... removed the SD card and battery .... put them back in and Hey Presto.... my camera is working again. Please try doing this if you get a message camera failed it worked for me.
