How To Fix Camera Failed Problem On Samsung Galaxy S5
Some Samsung Galaxy S5 owners have a camera failed problem on the Galaxy S5. It has been reported that several days after normal usage, the Galaxy S5’s main camera delivers an unexpected message – “Warning: Camera Failed” – and the Samsung Galaxy S5 camera stops working. The issue isn’t fixed after rebooting the device or returning it to factory settings. “We have learned that a limited number of Galaxy S5 devices may have an issue that causes a ‘Camera Failure’ pop-up error message,” Samsung told Re/code.
Samsung later explained the issue in a statement to Reuters, “We have discovered that the issue has been seen in a very limited portion of early production Galaxy S5 units, and was caused by complications in the ROM (Read Only Memory) component which stores the information necessary to operate the camera.”
