You are correct.

And they quote "We have learned that a limited number of Galaxy S5 devices may have an issue that causes 'Camera Failure' pop-up error message." S5 owners with a busted camera are asked to call 1-888-987-4357 to arrange an exchange under Samsung's warranty, or they can visit their respective carrier for a swap.

with past Android phones I've found there is a camera error that can be resolved by removing the micro SD card from the device, then rebooting and accessing the camera, then re-inserting the SD card.

I don't have an S5, but perhaps someone w/ a failed one can test this method to make sure that does not "fix" it?

- Force Stop, Clear Data, Clear Cache, and Clear Defaults
- Clear Cache Partition in Recovery
- Factory Reset through Settings
- Factory Reset through Recovery
- Installed 3rd party camera app

None of these have worked. Anyone have any other suggestions?

This is very strange the camera appears to get permanently damaged only on verizon units.

Could verizons bloatware permanently damage the camera module.

Hi all

Signed up to the forum to report I have just had this issue. However I bought the Samsung S5 sim free from the UK and after 8-9 days usage just received the camera failed issue.

I took the battery out of the phone to find the model number to call up Samsung, however once I restarted the phone the camera suddenly works fine?

Not sure how effected my phone is, I have 21 days to get an exchange/refund from the store I bought it from so I will give it another week.

Do you think it would just be safer to get an exchange now or just give my phone the benefit of the doubt?
