Hi everyone,

So I have a Galaxy S7 Edge. About a year ago it began experiencing the "Warning: Camera Failed" error. After attempting to fix it with all the methods I could find I broke down and got a Samsung Gaalaxy S9 edge. About 3 weeks ago I decided to set up a Wifi camera and found the phone in a drawer of mine. I actually completely forgot why I had upgraded it and put "DroidCamX" app on it. Lo and behold it worked and I was actually able to use it for about a week.

After a week though it went back to saying "Warning: Camera Failed" and neither the Camera app not DroidCamX have worked on it since.

I have factory reset the phone as well as cleared the cache's, forced stopped the camera and cleared the cache partition and it is still not working.

Would any of you have any knowledge on how I could fix this?

Hi, welcome!

Have you tried safe mode ?

Also download a 3rd party camera app see if that works ?
