Camera stopped working after pressing F8 - Error 0xA00f4271 MediaCaptureFailedEvent 0x80070018

2020-10-17, 14:55 PM

Hello there,

 

My camera stopped working after I pressed F8 (to switch it off) and then I can't make it work anymore.

When I open the camera app I get the following error code:

0xA00f4271 <MediaCaptureFailedEvent> 0x80070018

 

Searching here in the forum and elsewhere I've seen many suggestions and I've tried:

  • Pressing F8 again (numerous times)
  • Making sure the apps are allowed to use the camera (Privacy settings)
  • Updating drivers
  • Using the Microsoft recommended driver
  • Uninstalling the device and installing again (via Device Manager)

 

Since it started after I've pressed F8, I assume it's a software issue.

 

Any help is much appreciated.

 

Cheers.

Could you use skype or zoom app to start Camera normally?
