My camera stopped working two months ago. Sometimes it crashes, sometimes gives message "Something went wrong" and if i close pop up message the frontal camera continues working. I tried troubleshooting steps; couple times from many attempts I managed to make a photo but after closing the app it wasn't working again. I've seen many people flagging the same issue in Camera app reviews on Google Play regarding Pixel (mostly pixel 2). Is there any fix planned?

Same issue here with pixel 4xl
Already did factory reset
Already did factory reset from black screen pressing volume and power button
Already did all steps from Google's trouble shoot site
Already tried installing other camera apps 
Already updated to Android 11

It seems that is disconnected or something, not sure if there is a process to reinstall the hardware?

Apps like what's app do not detect the rear camera either

Please let me know what to do. The camera was working fine yesterday July 10, 2021

Hi,
 
Can you check if camera works with Location turned off?
Also, have you tried clearing cache/storage for the camera app?
Does it work on in Safe Mode?

Hello, I have been having a similar issue starting about a month ago. A related issue is the flashlight app wouldn't run either (greyed out with a message camera in use). More often the front camera works, than the back, but it has been a while since either has worked.
It used to start working every once in a while after a night of charging, and would stop working by the end of the day.

I have deleted the cache a few times, and tried booting in Safe mode. It does not work there either.

My wife's pixel 3 rear camera hasn't worked for 6 months. I contacted support and completed all the steps that have been suggested but I still get the error message that the original poster left. I believe this is a software issue and I wonder if this is just with one carrier or multiple. I have the Verizon one and i know someome that has the Verizon pixel 2 with the same issue.

Hi Guys. I got the pixel 3 and had the same problem since last weekend. Had a update few days before. No damage or drops to the phone. Can't use the torch. But the front camera still works.

I read a million posts. 
and so tired of hearing or reading the same rubbish!

Clear cache, safe mode, reset phone, etc ! Wish those annoying people would stop replying to these posts cause it helps nobody! They don't work!!!

Only thing I can see is and hope not . It's a way for Google to get you to buy newer model phones. (Just like Apple were doing by slowing down your old phones!)
Google messes with the main selling point of the phone!!! The camera!

would appreciate some actual real answers. Not from the trolls leaving same wrong info and don't know what they are talking about!??
