Can’t Connect to Camera – Xiaomi Error

Recently we update our Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime with recent OTA update and once after the update is done, I can’t open my camera. It shows the following error –

Camera Error – Still Can’t Connect to Camera. Try restarting your device.

That error happened to me Redmi 2 Prime phone when you get global, it almost happens with 60% of Xiaomi phones after updating. Just like me, it might be troubling you and for your help, I have come with a guide to fix this not working Xiaomi phone camera.


Level 1

First, try to reboot your device and check if the error is fixed or not.

Level 2

Clearing the data on your camera might help. Here is how to do it –

  • First head to Settings.
  • Now click on Installed apps.
  • Now click on Camera.
  • and now tap on Clear Data.

Check if the problem is fixed or not.

Level 3 & Final

Still, the problem isn’t resolved, then you need to be technical now.

  • Download the Fastboot ROM for your device. For my device, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime, I got it here.
  • Follow the guide mentioned here to flash Fastboot or any ROM on Xiaomi phones.

Last Resort

If that doesn’t fix your problem, you will have to contact the Xiaomi staff or visit your nearest Xiaomi Service Center in order to escalate the problem. Remember if the device is in warranty then only give the phone and since it’s a software glitch, you shouldn’t be charged any money for it. If your phone is out of warranty, then search for a local shop to get it fixed because official customer care will charge huge money for it [Somebody says it’s around Rs 2000 aka $40].
