How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Camera Failed Error

Cameras are one of the features that people are looking for in a smartphone. Many people have purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for its camera. It gives the best quality photo to the user because of its 16-megapixel rear camera. But we heard that some users reported about their Note 8 camera failed error. The app shows up a message saying “Warning: Camera Failed” after the normal usage then suddenly stops working. Common troubleshooting such as performing factory settings and rebooting the device doesn’t work on this issue.

Check out our proposed solutions below if you experience a camera failed error on your Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

How to Fix Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Camera Failed Problem:

  • Try to restart your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 if the camera error shows up on the screen. To restart, press and hold the Power button and Home button simultaneously for about 7-10 seconds and wait until the phone vibrates and switches off.


  • Clear the cache on your camera app. To do this, go to the Settings app from the Apps page or slide down your finger from the top of the screen to the bottom to show up the status bar and tap on the gear icon. Then open the Application Manager from the options and from the list of apps, browse and select the Camera app. Then select Force Stop, Clear Data, and Clear Cache.


    Our Recommendation
  • The last option is to clear the cache partition. This should fix the camera failed error that’s showing up on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 screen. To do this, turn off the Note 8. Press and hold the Home, Power, and Volume Up buttons simultaneously. Then after a few seconds, let go of the button until the Android System Recovery screen shows up. From the options, select the Wipe Cache Partition using the Volume down to scroll through the options then select it by using the Power button.

If the three methods shown above still doesn’t fix the issue when your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 camera still gets the failed error, we suggest you to take the Note 8 back to where you bought it or to Samsung Store if it’s still under warranty where it can be physically checked. There’s a chance that a replacement unit will be provided once it is proven to be defective by a technician.
