Lenovo Flex 14 - Camera doesn't work - SOMETHING WENT WRONG

2020-09-25, 7:47 AM

Hi all,

 

Recently I noticed my integrated camera on my IdeaPad FLEX-14IWL stopped working. 

 

When opening the camera I get the following error - 

SOMETHING WENT WRONG - 0xA00F4271 <MediaCaptureFailedEvent> (0x80070018)

 

I updated privacy settings, made sure the camera isn't toggled off (F8), updated drivers, and used the Lenovo registry fix posted earlier. 

 

Windows 10 and Lenovo updates are fully up to date.

 

In Device Manager, under Camera - USB BOOT is the enabled camera. But nothing works.

 

I read a year old post on this for other models but unsure if that's related to this. 

 

Any ideas?

Hi, 

 

Sorry for the bump. 

 

Tried system restore and still no change. 

 

Tried forcing camera on, privacy settings, resetting camera app in options, camera shutter open and close, and driver update, rollback and reinstall.
