When I try to access the camera (from any app) I get a message says Cant connect to camera. I already tried different roms. once a while the camera return. I cant get what is the problem. I tried different solutions from other threads in the forum, but nothing ).I use the official rom.
I flashed a THL W100 with sp tool and stupidly left the preloader checked, it finished all good and show me the green circle, but now it wont boot up and when i try to flash with any w100 rom it says the rom is not compatible with this device..
I don't know how to reconnect my camera to my tablet. I get an error message saying "Cannot Connect to Camera". I have a 10.1 tablet by Hannspree model #SN1AT7 (HSG1279) otherwise known as HANNSpad. i don't know what happened. I installed an update and it just didn't work after that.
I am the proud owner of a SGS3...But I'm not the biggest fan of touchwiz and I love everything about 4.2! So like many others, I flash a 4.2 custom ROM. AOKP 4.2 build 2, to be exact.After flashing, I loved it. Everything about it was just perfect. It was fast, light, easy to use, and FAST! But then I go to take a picture. And boom.
"Can't Connect to Camera"..I had no idea what to do, so I did the first thing that comes to mind. reboot. But sadly, this solved nothing. So of course I re-flash my touchwiz ROM to see if the ROM was the problem. And the Touchwiz camera worked perfectly. Later on when I had time, I tested it out again, and had the same problem. So I downloaded a camera app, and same thing. I even flashed a different Camera.zip for God's sake! I've searched for the past week for fixes and every one I tried just failed! So now I'm really done with Touchwiz and want to customize the look and feel of my phone (which is one of the reasons I like AOKP!)
It seems that my camera only works on Touchwiz ROMs! I also tried another ROM this time running 4.1.2 thinking maybe it was just a bug in 4.2! But sadly, the same error message.
I was flashing a 4.2 camera .zip file and i guess it was messing up the permissions. So I disabled it. Now it is working perfectly so far. Yesterday i switched over to a 4.1.2 ROM hoping it would fix it and so then i flashed this 4.2 camera and then after about a day of use, it messed up the permissions.
I have been working on a build recently and everything is running very well with one exception.... I am getting an error when opening the camera. "Can't connect to the Camera". Now I have tried a multitude of things to no avail.
I am running a CM11 nightly of KitKat 4.4.1 on a VZW Note II, however I have had this issue with other devices, carriers, Android versions, etc. so I have always assumed it is just the way Android works.
Basically if an app that is currently using the camera (Camera app, barcode scanner, etc) crashes or hangs and gets force-closed, opening any camera app after that seems to always give me either a "can't connect to camera" error or a black screen instead of the viewfinder. In these cases, a simple reboot fixes the issue and I can use the camera again, but this is inconvenient for two reasons:
1. A reboot on my phone takes 45-60 seconds, by which time whatever I wanted a picture of is usually gone or changed.
2. Rebooting means that any apps that don't save the data constantly but run in the background are restarted and I lose the progress. Mainly I am referring to Chrome incognito tabs, but also apps that don't save in-progress data such as puzzle games or video players.
With my limited knowledge of Linux and my slightly less limited knowledge of operating systems in general, I know that sometimes a temporary lock file is Created to prevent other apps/programs from modifying or accessing a file or program until the lock is released. Does that kind of situation apply here, such as a camera lock file being created when camera access is started and then not able to be released if the app crashes.? Also, if that does apply, would manually deleting the lock file or creating a script that does it for me when it is run allow access to the camera again without rebooting? And if that doesn't apply, is there any way to regain camera access without rebooting when this occurs?
I just got a Star N7189 with android 4.2.1 and the first thing I did, because it was a used phone that my dad gave me, was to perform a factory reset.My dad told me the phone was fine except the camera didn't worked, so I thought the factory reset could also fix this.
After the reset everything in the phone is fine and running without any problem except the camera. In first place there isn't even a camera icon or app, the only way I can access the camera is by sliding the screen after I press the lock/unlock button, and after a second of thinking it gives me the 'can't connect to camera' error.I haven't installed any application or anything.
I have a Goophone s4 mega running 4.2.2. I was using the camera and it stopped suddenly. And now when I launch the camera app it says can't connect to the camera. I've looked into it a little and I think I'm missing a folder in the system directory called cam data or cameradata. Does that sound like it could be stopping the camera?
I have this error message on my Goophone Goophone V88 i5 Dual core RAM 1GB MTK6577. When I open the camera on the phone, I get the message. (Cant connect to the camera, turn off the flashing lights or other equipment).
I'm trying to write a basic camera app. The problem that I am facing is that it works fine in emulator but on the phone (Nexus one) it fails.
The point of failure is the very first call, i.e. Camera.open(). It fails on the phone saying "Failed to connect to camera service". Any idea what could be wrong? (BTW, I am calling this from my activity's onCreate funtion itself, could that be an issue?)
For the information, I do have the necessary Camera permissions specified in my manifest xml file.
I had my camera set to this.setRequestedOrientation(ActivityInfo.SCREEN_ORIENTATION_LANDSCAPE); and it works fine but if I change it to PORTRAIT instead of LANDSCAPE then it crashes with the following error...
The method it crashes in is..
It crashes at mCamera = Camera.open();
My Manifest file has <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA"></uses-permission>
How do I fix this so I can view my app in Portrait?
My camera stopped working. When I click my camera application I get the message "The application camera (process com.android.camera) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again". It's just a blank screen?
I have a problem with my camera so I try to install are the 4.2 camera on my haipad I9300 mtk 6577. No success so now I want to go back to the original ics camera and gallery.. Unfortunately I delete the original ones when I install the 4.2 camera. So I download the camera apk and Google gallery. Apk and put in system.app the gallery shows up but not the camera. The gallery crash very often. I cannot make the camera shows up. Every time I turn on the phone it appears "Android update". I don't have a recovery.
however, im stuck i recently wanted to try an older cm10.2 rom from the unstable newer ones and decided to go back to cm11 and i decided to reformat my data leaving me emptiness. I am now stuck with not being able to coneect to a device or external storage i can charge though. im pretty sure i didnt enable mtp and put on debugging...
Edit: this phone doesnt support otg how may i cant connect adb it says waiting for device when i try to flash twrp
I have a nexus 4 with straight talk and am trying to figure out how to use the internet when I am not connected to WiFi. My wife's Galaxy Proclaim android phone automatically connects to 3G when cell service is available however my Nexus 4 does not.
I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S3. It has Android 4.0.4 (ICS). However, when i tried to connect it to my VW EOS via a USB cable, the car failed to recognise the device. It worked with my previous phone, an HTC Desire. Upon reading a wee bit, it looks like ICS drops USB Mass Storage support in favour of MTP. Is this why the connections doesn't work?
I just can't restore my adb backup to my phone now!I have an adb backup from Xperia V, now I want to restore it to my Note 2.When I connect my note to my computer and type "adb device" it can detect my note 2. But when I type "adb restore <filename.ab>, it says "unable to connect for backup"!
I downloaded android 4.0.4 version without any trouble.Yesterday I tried to get the jelly bean version.Everything went good till the point he was going to start. (Battery was full-loaded, no doubts about that).Then suddenly the phone didn't react anymore.I tried everything, even volume down+home button +power button.The phone also won't connect with PC.So i can't use Odin and download another version.
I got a chinese X12 dual sim phone because i really needed only 1 phone (had to carry around 2 of them).Phone works great, only problem is with the mobile networks. It can connect to GSM networks but it won't connect to a 3G network. The phone has 3G capabilities, 3G is enabled for the required sim, it finds the 3G network but it will not connect to it.
Sim works fine, had it in a Samsung i900 on 3G (WCDMA) The thing that surprises me most is that the phone came with android 4.0 instead of the 2.3.6 it was advertised, could this be the problem?
I got a Star N8000 with android 4.1.1 1 month and a half ago and I think its a great phone... anyways the point is that when Im connected on wifi everything is perfect, notifications aren't delayed at all but when I use data mobile its different =/ when the screen turns off for 5 mins or something like that, notifications are quite delayed... sometimes I have to turn on the screen and wait like 20 secs after I open whatsapp and all messages start to come. I dont know why I cannot connect to 3G service, maybe its because Movistar doesnt have it (Im from venezuela) so I use EDGE and I figured out about something: when I open whatsapp (after inactivity) it starts to try to connect I think because in the signal icon appears two white signs like an arrow or something like that. I dont know if it the software but it doesnt happen on wifi:.. so I dont have any idea about it. Im not root user (tried to be but didnt work) and I dont have any task killer..
'm having a problem with my Verizon G2. I had the Xposed framework installed, and I installed an app called Xorware, which is a toggle for 2G/3G/4G. I messed around with the settings in the app a little bit, and left it alone. A bit later, the phone stopped connecting to the mobile data network. I tried uninstalling the Xorware apps, wiping the cache on my phone, and even restoring to a backup where I don't have Xposed installed, and I'm still getting the same issue. Wifi still works, but every couple of minutes it disconnects randomly and then connects again. I also tried removing the SIM card for a few minutes after turning off the phone, and still, no luck.
