Both cameras not showing pics anymore

hi,

Both cameras on my 18382cg stopped showing pictures. I can start the camera app (or 3rd party apps), picture is black. I take a picture and get a picture of the android robot....weird.

I tried anything short of the factory reset...no change. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Regards Umbi

Re: Both cameras not showing pics anymore

Thanks limbot,

my german TPT has it under Settings/Datenschutz/Kameras, it was 50:50 whether this would be security or privacy in english. :-)
