So i have recently updated my phone to the latest 7.0 software on my galaxy s7. ever since the update, my fingerprint scanner doesn't work. When i go into the system settings to try and setup new fingerprints it gives me the error "An error has occurred with the fingerprint sensor. If this message appears repeatedly, restart your device." I tried restarting the device, clearing the app's cache and data, as well as clearing the system cache in the boot menu. When i go into the FingerPrint test under the HwModuleTest(*#0*#) and perform a normal scan, everything comes back as failed. Is my only option to backup my phone and do a complete reinstall?
Same issue with me here in the UK. Just did the Nougat OTA update, having no end of issues, including the "dry home button" stuff with the fingerprint scanner. Also, the stock browser seems to have lost it's secret / incognito mode.... why can't they just leave stuff alone? Seems like my only option at this point is to downgrade back to marshmallow and put up with the annoying update notification.
