Remove and ReInsert the battery it worked for me.

I'm having the same issue as above. Showing "camera failed". Already tried battery method but did not work. Tried using other camera application, still same issue. I even performed Clear Data on the camera app and updated my phone but still won't work.
Can some one help me and provide me other option, other than performing factory reset on my phone. I need all the data's of some of my apps installed. Thanks. 


I just removed and re inserted the battery.

problem solved and the camera worked.

Thank You.

'Camera Failed' error. Removed the Battery for 5 to 8 minutes and then inserted back and restarted the phone. Voila! IT worked!

Thanks for sharing this article with us. Nice post.

In mobile, Camera issues are the common issues. Cell phone cameras need to be properly held. You always want to hold the camera steady with both hands. If the shot is not blurry but still not as sharp as it needs to be, you can try using an image editor to sharpen the images — but this is less than ideal.
