[Q] Back Camera gives blank screen on new N7 2013.
New Nexus 7 2013, unlocked and rooted with NRT v1.7.2.
Camera does not work
Any ideas please?
Today I also installed all of my apps, and downloaded the maps and data associated with them, which has taken pretty much all day.
Now I thought I'd have a play, so I decided to take a camera, as that is one of the new things this Nexus 7 can do over my previous one. All I get is a dark grey screen with just the camera controls on it. I can get the on-screen pop-upcontrols to do clever things like change the auto white balance, but NO PICTURE.
If I flip to the front facing camera, it takes a while, but usually gives me a picture, which at 1.2m is pretty awful on this wonderful screen.
If I then flip back, the image stays, and the camera app freezes. Occasionally I have had a message saying "can't connect to the camera". Twice I've had a message saying that the "gallery isn't responding". Well, there is nothing in the gallery.
I've searched here, and found forum threads elsewhere suggesting reboot, or use Permissions Manager to allow access to the camera. The permissions were OK but I removed them and restored them just in case. Rebooting has made no difference.
My last ditch will be restoring to factory settings, as I've spent 5 hours installing my apps and data. Just doing a backup, then plan a nandroid backup so that if I do have to reset, I can hopefully restore how I am now.
LG Nexus 4 16GB replaced HTC HD2 / HP hx4700 & Motorola V3im/ Psion mx5/ Psion 3mx/ Psion 3a. The Psion replaced filofax, which replaced annual paper diary! ALSO Asus Nexus 7.
