Thinkpad Yoga 14 (20FY) camera privacy not switching off

My internal camera does not turn on. It shows for a few seconds and it turns off again. I read somewhere that it has to do with the camera's privacy settings. I tried turning off the privacy settings in Lenovo Vantage applicaiton, but the issue remains unresolved. The camera is turned on in the windows camera settings. I am using Windows 10 Home OS Build 18362.356

Re: Thinkpad Yoga 14 (20FY) camera privacy not switching off

You wrote that the camera shows for a few seconds and then turns off again.  When it shows, what exactly do you see?  If it's camera privacy, you would see a camera icon with a slash through it, on a grey background.  If you don't see this, then I don't think it's a camera privacy problem.
