How to fix camera problem on the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime?

I keep getting a message MediaServer failed. Camera needs restart when using the camera on my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone. How do I solve this problem.

Accepted Answer

My phone camera Samsung grand prime can"t be operate...there is some alert.

UPDATE: Answer provided by @moontej worked. Power off the phone. Remove the battery for 20-30 seconds and then re-attach. Power up phone again. Then your mobile camera will work. This is caused by a power distribution problem inside the mobile chipset.

Carl P. It worked for a while as I removed battery and reinserted it. But afterwards the problem persists.
