Samsung Galaxy S :: Warning Camera Failed - Hardware Issue

Sep 2, 2010

I've had my Samsung Galaxy S for a couple of weeks now, and the last time i took pictures with it was on 29th August. I tried the camera yesterday and got this message.

What happens is the camera app opens, and instantly displays this message and all you can do is click ok. When you do that, the app closes.

I tried many things, including trying to press other buttons quickly before the error message comes. I managed to switch to camcorder mode and even press the record button in that time, but all i got was video recording failed message.

I checked on the forums for people who had similar problems and here's a list of things i tried so far:

1- Uninstall Fring
2- Return to Factory Settings
3- Fully Recharge Phone
4- Take out battery, sim, external sd card, wait for 5 mins and restart
5- Take out external sd card altogether and restart

So far nothing has worked. I haven't dropped or hit the phone anywhere. It hasn't been in temperatures less than 10 degrees celcius or over 25.

I can't think of anything else to do really, other than calling up warranty line. The problem is i'm going on holiday soon and the only reason i wanted to get this phone before my previous contract ended was to be able to use the camera while on holiday and now all my plans have gone down the drain.

I even tried reinstalling fring and making a test call with it, and i can confirm my front facing camera is working fine. It's the one on the back that's not working.

I tried installing other applications as well which would use the phone's camera and every each of them force closed when i tried.

I can't send it off with warranty until i come back from holiday anyway, so maybe froyo would be rolled out by my provider by then... I wonder if that would fix things... But i thought returning to factory settings would have fixed it too, which it didn't...

Jelly Bean :: Samsung Galaxy S4 Warning Camera Failed?

Oct 15, 2013

I was taking a walk and taking photos with my 2 month old galaxy s4. I have never had any issues with it. intill yesterday, I encountered a camera crash. I took out my camera, made a panorama, and then switched to auto mode and that's when my camera froze for like 30 seconds. after, it unfroze. I took a picture and the picture came out well accept the white black little horizontal lines on the top and bottom of the photo. after that I got worried so when I went back to the camera, it said the camera failed message and then it brought me to the home screen. after that, I accessed the camera again and everything was fine, the camera worked, accept the interface was frozen. I could not press the shutter button, gallery button, mode button, video button, etc. so I rebooted my phone and now the camera works perfectly. yesterday after the reboot I took pictures the whole day and It was perfect. today it is perfect too, no crashes. im just getting a little paranoid about why this happened and I am scared something is wrong with my phone as I worked and paid full price. everything is alright now im just wondering, was this a glitch in the software? did the camera crash because it was having a hard time that second to go back to auto mode from panorama mode? this is again, not happening any more but what was the message all about? how come it works now? is my phone alright?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Warning - Kies To Install The Froyo Update

Oct 24, 2010

I tried getting Kies to install the Froyo update on my Galaxy S (i live in the UK) using the registry hack that has been widely published. It didn't work and I ended up witha slightly newer version of 2.1 than I already had. Phone seemed to work fine, until I put my SIM card back in. It immediately restarted itself as soon as I tried to use 3G.

I went through all the settings, everything seemed to be the same as it was before the flash, but still it restarted everytime I connected to the 3G network.

Sooo, I decided to try and restore it to the previous firmware version again by changing the KIES regisrty values. Everything seemed to go well, phone downloaded the correct version, installed it fine etc and then KIES notified me that the firmware upgrade was succesful and the phone will now reboot.

Only it didnt.

It turned off and hasn't turned back on since
It doesn't get recognised when plugged into USB, it doesn't even show a charging logo when plugged into the mains. It does get VERY warm when I leave the battery in for 10 minutes or so though.

I've tried all the three button combos posted around, I've taken the battery out and in and out and in etc etc... nothing. It's a shiny 9mm thick brick now

Samsung Captivate :: Camera Failed To Work

Jul 22, 2010

My camera stopped working at the worst time just when I needed to take some pics at a dinner today. Has anyone encountered a "Camera Failed" message after opening the Camera application? I tried rebooting many times (at least 5-6 times) hoping it was a software glitch, but would not go away. I was testing the GPS navigation (using Google Maps) and my battery drained from 60% to 30% in 20 mins!! Does using navigation or low battery charge screw up the camera?I was sure it was a HW defect thinking I had to return the unit, but when I got home, and plugged into wall charger for a few minutes, I found that camera started working again.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Recording Failed - Only In HD And Only When Storing On Phone?

Oct 12, 2010

My galaxy s has recently given me a "warning recording failed" message about a minute or so into recording a video.

Strange thing is that it only happens when recording in HD resoution, and only when the phone is selected as the storage type. It works fine if the SD card is selected, or in any other resolution!

So Im just curious as to what could be causing this? Would it be a result of full memory? Or anythin to do with the lag fix I installed?

From the Greek guy that recently compared Super Amoled vs Amoled vs Lcd....

He says that the 5mpx camera is excellent in day but in dark places without the flash it is not very good....the 720p is nice but he is not impressed.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: ROM Enable Root Failed - Stuck In Startup Loop

Oct 31, 2009

I have rooted my phone and have now the recovery mode from HD blog. It's was working fine. So I tried to get the Galaxhero ROM installed. I did the following steps:

1) Reboot in recovery mode (Volume down + both Call buttons) and choose "Nandroid backup" to save a backup of your current ROM just in case.
2) Backup G apps
3) Then, choose "Wipe data/factory reset". The phone will reboot in recovery mode again.
4) Choose "Apply" (second menu entry on the recovery screen)
5) Restore Google applications ("Restore G.Apps")
6) "Enable root (su)".

But then enable root failed! Anyway I went on further with reboot system. It rebooted till the "android HD logo" showed up and then suddenly the screen went off and it seemed like my phone went off. So I went back to the recovery mode and did the following steps:
Wipe data
Restore backup
Restore G apps
Enable root SU, but again enable su failed!!

Again I choose reboot system, and when the reboot came again to the "android HD logo". It stuck there and stayed looping.
First, why do I still see the android HD logo again because I did a wipe!
Second, How can I get my phone working again!

Samsung Galaxy S :: Camera Not Working In Low Light Conditions

Jul 14, 2010

I'm considering getting the Galaxy S, but the only drawback I can see right now if the absence of a flash for the camera. I know flashes on camera phones aren't all that great, but they do help in many situations. I read in a couple places that this phone has a night mode negating the need for the flash. So far I have not been able to find any sample photos taken in low light conditions, say a portrait of friends in a dark restaurant, or at a party. Can those of you who have the phone post some sample shots in these conditions?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Camera Stops Music Playback

Sep 12, 2010

Galaxy S on 3 with stock 2.1 ROM. When I'm listening to music on the default music player and activate the camera the music stops. If it paused I wouldn't be so bothered but it actually puts you back to that start of the track. A real pain if you're 45 mins into a podcast. Is this normal Android behaviour or Galaxy S specific? Or worse - specific to me?

Android :: Camera Preview - Strange On Samsung Galaxy S

Jul 9, 2010

In my activity I show the camera preview on a surfaceView. It works perfectly fine on Nexus One and HTC Desire, but on Samsung Galaxy S I see strange lines, weird proportions and everything three times. see the Screenshot below.

The issue seems to be similar to this one: but none of the comments there helped. I tried to swap height,width for the camera parameters, but not much of a difference.

(Side note: my activity is always in landscape mode, fixed. I have that fix in my manifest as screenOrientation parameters, in case that matters somehow).
