Camera Xperia Play front camera not working!

Hi guys
My front camera stopped working...i get Camera not connected message when trying to turn on the camera.
I tried everything like clearing data and restarting, resetting to factory settings and software repair in pc companion. All of the above methods failed.
Can someone help me out....thanks

Mine stopped working as well. No idea what causes it though. It went back to normal at one point but then it failed again. I would assume it's something to do with the hardware of the camera, because nothing I do to the software changes it. And trust me, I've tried a lot as well.

Same issue for mine as well. Rebooting after attempting to use it seemed to work for a while, but it returned to the error. I agree with it being a hardware issue.

If you're using a custom rom and using the LED torch on the quickpanel, go untick that LED torch on quickpanel settings.

If you're using stock rom, sorry no idea.

you have probably toggled something off. try to look for your default settings and apply them. that should work. if any more problems arise just ask me. XPERIA GAMER
