Clearing the App Cache

Clearing the cache mostly tends to solve the issue. Head over to All Apps in the Settings folder and from there head over to Camera. From there clear the cache and the data from both the tabs provided at the bottom of the page. There will also be an option called “Force Stop”. Press that. The camera should work now. Try rebooting your device and then trying again.

To update the software, go to Settings > About phone > System Updates.

 

Booting in Safe Mode

  • Turn off your device
  • Once the phone is off, press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds
  • When the logo shows up, press and hold the Volume down button until you  see “Safe mode” which will be located at the bottom of the screen
  • If the camera is working normally, one of the third-party apps is causing the issue
  • Boot into normal mode and disable each app one by one, or if you have too many apps on your device and don’t want to uninstall them manually, you can perform a factory data reset (explained below).

 

Wipe Cache Partition

Cleaning the cache partition can help in many ways. It will restore your default camera settings and preference.

    • Turn off the phone
    • Press and hold the Power and Volume down buttons for three seconds
    • Use the Volume down key to navigate to recovery and select it with the volume up key
    • Motorola logo will appear
    • Press and hold the Volume Up  key for 20 seconds while still holding this key, tap and release the Power button
    • An additional menu will show up
    • Navigate to Wipe Cache Partition using the Volume Down key and select it with the power button

 

Perform a Factory Reset

Resetting your device can sometimes work as it removes any possible adjustments which might have hurdled or hampered the functions of any application. Returning your device to the same state it was in when you purchased it or when it left the factory (hence the specific term). In most cases, certain adjustments or alteration by users result in the malfunctioning of apps, in this case, the camera. Navigate to Settings> Backup and reset >  Factory  Reset.
