Moto g1 front camera not working

Hi,

 

I'm extremely frustrated with the front camera on my moto g1. It does not work, I get the error message that it is busy when I try to switch to this camera.

 

I've tried a forced stop, clearing the data, the cache and rebooting in "safe mode", none of these things help. I'm reluctant to do a factory reset because I have almost 6 months of data saved in my blood sugar apps. 

 

Can you help?

Try a different Camera and if that works you know it's just the Camera app.I use this great free one,

I tried Open Camera, I have the same problem (can't use front camera) and same error message with it.

That's a shame so it's a phone problem and not just the Camera app Smiley Sad

 

Does it work in Safemode?

 

Press power button.Then long press on the Shutdown screen until the Safemode option appears.
