My phone for the last week or two has been plagued with the annoying "Camera Failed" notification whenever I try to open the camera, followed by the app itself crashing. I am at wits end trying to make this work, and thus far, I have not been able to solve it. I have tried numerous things to solve the problem that I have found on various forums from people experiencing the same problem. Stuff you may need to know: My phone: Samsung Galaxy SIIx ( SGH-T989D ) OS: Jellybean 4.1.2 ( latest available for this device, I updated after the problem started from ICS hoping it would resolve the issue. It didn't. Strangely, the front facing camera is functional, but ONLY with snapchat. Things I have done to try and fix it: * Cleared the cache from application manager for Camera, and Gallery * Hard Reset ( Factory reset) * Deleted ALL apps that use the camera * Tried installing other camera apps, none of them are able either * Updated from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jellybean 4.1.2 Also, I have followed the advice of others and accessed the 'secret menu' by dialing *#34971539# and then press Phone/CAM FW Ver Check. The results I got were: Cam FW ver : SEEH05 Phone FW ver: SDEH0D When I press the button below, "Phone to CAM FW write", it says Invalid Version. HELP MEEEE!!!!
