Since a while I have the camera LED on, but the camera's are not accessible on my Thinkpad X1 Tablet 2nd generation.
In the device manager 2 drivers are giving a problem:
Camera Sensor OV8858
Camera Sensor OV2740
When I try to update it states the latest driver is installed.
When I uninstall and restart, same message comes back. Driver not correct.
I have downloaded and installed the drivers again from the Lenovo support website (Intel SkyCam driver v 30.15063.4659.2/30.15063.10991.4659 - date 29 August 2017), does not help.
What can I do ??

There is a similar X1 Tablet 2nd Camera issue reported on another forum topic.
While investigating that issue, development team found the issue can be avoided by rolling back the Intel Video driver to v18.104.22.16836 ( refer to below link)
I'd like customer to try this graphics driver

Thank you for thew suggestion.
I have downloaded from the suggested download link.
However this is no solving my problem.
Do you have other suggestions/solutions ?

I am experiencing a very similar problem. I am unable to get OV8858 to initialize. It says this device cannot start power failure. Occasionally on reboot it will work but eventually the front facing camera fails.

the latest Intel Gfx driver v22.214.171.12473 is uploaded to the Lenovo web site.
I hope this issue will be disappeared with this Video driver.

I am having the same issue with OV8858 not starting but with the X1 Tablet 20GG 1st Gen, will the graphics driver be updated for that platform as well? Rolling back to older drivers is not correcting the situation.
