Default [Q] "Error! Camera not available"

I've just encountered this error message when trying to open the camera. I tried clearing app data and cache for everything camera related then rebooting, I then did a factory reset and I still get the same problem. Anybody have this before or know of a solution? I'm on 14.1.G.1.518 rooted, locked bootloader and I haven't done any updates since I bought it 6 weeks ago. Camera worked fine yesterday, no changes have been made since then apart from a reboot. Hope someone can help, thanks!

u can test these;
1. setting > apps > all > camera > clear cache + clear data + force stop (clear data will remove all ur modification on setting of app)
2. do 1. + restart
3. also check another camera app
4. force restart ( i think it was pwr btn + vol. down for 10 seconds & 3 vibrates- anyway it s better to check support section of sonymobile website)
5. finally u can just repair ur phone by PCC (it will install latest firmware and so u will lose ur root access and should try again for rooting)
