IdeaPad Flex14-IWL built in camera - Error Code: 0xa00f4271 media capture failed event> (0x80070018)

2020-04-20, 16:07 PM

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14-IWL running Windows 10 and my built in webcam (USB Boot) is not working. It used to work though! All of my drivers, BIOS, and Windows 10 are up to date. I have tried resetting the camera, disabling and re-enabling it, uninstalling and re-downloading the driver, disabling anti-virus, enabling the camera in my privacy settings, pressing the F8 key, and making sure the cover is off. Nothing is working. Any new tips? Or do I just have to wait for a new Windows update to fix it? When I try to open my camera app, I get this error message: 0xa00f4271 media capture failed event> (0x80070018)

 

Thanks!!

Did this issue ever resolve for you? We installed the latest windows update last night and now have the same problem. Are we just screwed until the next windows update and cross our fingers that it is fixed?

I have the same problem here. Tried all you said there, even wrote to lenovo support. Sometimes it works, without any aparente reason and then it malfunctions again. Have you solved your issue by now?

I actually ended up sending mine in since it was still under warranty and they replaced the motherboard and a couple of other hardware parts. It has worked fine since then! However, they only gave me 4GB of RAM instead of the 8GB that I had before which is frustrating.
