Hello,

I can't record video with the phone. The video record button is grayed out. The option for Motion Photo works though, which records a short video clip before a picture is taken. I'm not using an SD Card, so I checked how much internal storage I was using. I still have 15.70 GB available. Any help!?

Seeing as how the phone hasn't even officially launched yet, you're less likely to find users that have encountered the same issue as you. Have you tried factory resetting the phone? Unfortunately, there isn't much to go off of as there's no history to form suggestions from.

Wish I could help, but don't have mine yet to see if there is something in the settings or maybe you do need to have a card for external storage.

I remember way in the past one of the Androids I had, you could not do certain things if there was no card.

Can you provide a summary of everything you've tried so far? Also screenshots of the relevant screens may be helpful.

Welcome to Android Central!

Try going in to your settings, applications, application manager, all apps, find the camera app and clear the data. That should reset the app and could fix the issue.

Check the battery level and power saving options. Mine for some reason wont record when battery is low. I had the same problem and charged and factory reset and now the button came back.

Hey guys, I had the exact same problem, had no clue what I did to made the video button gray out, tried everyone that was mentioned above. The solution is to go into the app manager and clear the data and that brought everything back now I can record video again!

Seems like the s7e has a heat issue when doing video. Mine shut down and won't work now after doing 4k video. Sad that that was my replacement to the note 7.

You dont actually have to factory reset the phone. All you have to do is setting reset and it'll fix the problem. Hope it helps. Peace

Hiya, this may work. Select your camera ikon, look to the far left of the screen and touch to open the settingsame option. Scroll to the bottom choice which should say reset settings, when selected this hopefully will enable your video, as I had the same problem and once I did this it worked for me. Have a great week.

I tried to clear the data, but it's still dong the same thing. By the way, I have a Samsung Galaxy On5.

I tried everything everyone said and nothing worked. I later just simply restarted my phone and the video button wasn't grayed out anymore.
