[Q] Camera does not work anymore
Starting a couple days ago the camera app on my HTC One will not work. I keep getting the error "unable to start the camera." I have a stock build, recently (about a week ago) upgraded to 4.3.
Now, I have determined that it is not simply the main camera app that is not working as no app that uses the camera (snapchat etc.) work either.
I have tried many things to fix this issue so far, rebooting, clearing the cache, doing a full factory reset, attempting to open in safe mode. I have come to the conclusion that since none of these attempts worked that this either has to be an operating system/4.3 build issue (although I'm not sure this makes sense as I had a working camera for many days after upgrading and the factory reset did not help) or this is a hardware issue.
Has anyone else encountered this or have any suggestions? I have read a couple scarce threads where others had this issue but a soft reset usually solved it. My problem seems to be a lot more severe unfortunately.
Any help is much appreciated.
