So my camera seems to have stopped working properly. I don't believe it's a software issue. What happens is I fire up the camera and the screen will either remain black (while still being able to navigate camera options) or the camera will pop up and then the viewfinder will stop after a few seconds.

At first I figured it was software so I cleared the cams cache and data. No luck. Then I decided to flash a different ROM. I tried CM, and Dans GPE rom and no luck. Anyone got any ideas?

You could try replacing the back facing camera.

I did this on my last s4. (Ordered an oem part off a different s4).

It didn't fix my problem, however. At the time people were telling me it was a software problem.

In my case flashing some of the cyanogen nightlies when they were having some trouble with the company that makes the focal camera.

Long story short.

I called T-Mobile. They sent me another s4.

There are camera options in the play store that can verify if it's hardware or software.

In play store search "google camera ",try installing and run. If it functions profit, if not then it most likely is hardware related.
