How can I solve "Camera Busy" error

For the 2nd time, I have started getting an error "Camera Busy: Unable to start. If this repeats....".



The first time, I tried these things (below), to no avail. I know some of them seem off the wall, but others had luck with them on another forum. 



Clear camera Data



Clear camera cache



Force stop camera



Disable camera and re-enable



Turn phone on and off



System recovery "Wipe cache partition"



Deleted Tiny Flashlight app (for which the camera flash also quit working)



Loaded Camera Zoom FX Free app but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with TAKING photos. Didn't fix problem



Deleted Camera Zoom FX Free app



Loaded Google Camera app



Deleted Google Camera app



After posting the above on a forum, I continued trying to solve the problem, making the following changes and somewhere along the line, it fixed the camera problem. 



Active Display is as "off" as I can get it.



Touchless Control is off



Roaming tone is off



Cloud printing is off



HP Print Service Plugin is on



Assist updated



Motorola Contextual Services updated



That was 4 days ago. I used the camera just this morning and it was fine. Then this evening, it is back to being busy. I know that the app "Tiny Flashlight" updated today. I deleted it but still no luck with the camera. I've cleared the camera data, performed a "wipe cache partition", turned my phone off several times, plus other tests. 



Any ideas?
