[Q] Camera wont initialize
I am having a problem with my wife's, Atrix HD. This just started out of no where with no changes or updates in phone/. When I open the camera app i just get a black screen with the controls but no camera image, the controls respond (change colors when pressed) but don't do anything and I never get a camera picture. after a while I usually get a camera is unable to initialize error. I have searched and either no one provides a solution that I haven't tried or theirs messed up after flashing a custom ROM which I haven't done. I have tried all the factory resets, clearing cache, clearing data in application management for camera and gallery and none of it helped as other have recommended. Out of frustration I rooted her phone so I could experiment with uninstalling the camera (and gallery) and installing other versions of camera (and gallery) from other phones/aosp/android versions ext. and then re-installing the stock ones all to no avail. I know that the all the cameras were working just a week ago and that the front facing camera was working in oovoo even after she started having trouble with the rear camera, but I cant get either of them to pull up now. Does anyone know of a solution to this problem? I am leaning towards either a hardware issue or maybe the camera firmware was corrupted somehow and if this were the case does anyone know how to remedy it?
Let me know if you need any more info.
