Moto G5 camera error (please restart camera)

2020-03-06, 11:35 AM
Hello dear support team. I have an issue on my camera (rear and front) . It rarely works and frequently doesn't works. I have removed data and cache, even done the reset factory process, it didn't made sense. Last day I runed the safe mode, camera was working properly at safe mode. Then I restart the phone, camera runed for about 5 mins after that, I cant use my camera. May you please guide or help me? Best regards Ali Souri

Until you find a better fix use the Free Camera app I use called,"Open Camera" from the Google Playstore,


It has better functions and can also default save to a Portable SD card if you have one in the phone.


HTH :)

When the camera works in Safe Mode but fails other times, this indicates a software conflict among the camera and one or more 3rd party apps that you have downloaded to your phone.  Safe Mode doesn't identify the conflicting apps, so you have to do that yourself.
