    I have been getting error messages on my GS3 for a while now and have tried all the solutions posted online. I have wiped app data, cache, and recently did a factory reset to be able to use my camera again. None of these things worked. I just installed a new camera module and am having the same problem. It simply will not connect to the camera. Any ideas? FWIW I have wiped data/cache and did another factory reset after installing the new camera module to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.

    The device is not rooted and 100% stock right now.

    Welcome to Android Central! Did you install the camera yourself? There's always the possibility that some connection was wrong, or that the replacement part is also faulty. But my guess is that it has more to do with the motherboard--perhaps the circuitry that is involved with the camera is bad.

    Yes, I installed the camera myself. I understand there is a possibility it was an error on my end, but the behavior of the phone hasn't changed a bit since installing the new part. If this is a motherboard issue, what would my next course of action be? Is taking it somewhere for repairs out of the question, or am I looking at dealing with the camera issue/getting a new motherboard?

    I think at this point you'd have to bring it to a qualified technician for an evaluation. They may also be able to replace the motherboard, if that's the problem, but I'm not sure if the cost will be worth it.
