Can’t Connect to The Camera

I did encounter this error a few days back and did a bit of research of what causes this error to jump and stop your phone camera from working. People have tried a number of remedies to fix it but none of the solutions has worked for them.

Easy Fix Method

Possibly the easiest way to solve this problem is to restart the device. If that doesn’t solve your problem install a new camera app from Play Store. In 99% of cases it might solve your phone camera problem but if you happen to be 1% of the people you will need special treatment.

Why This Error

The main reason which causes this app is an improper closing of the camera causing image processor to show up this error. If you press Home button directly from the camera menu you are much likely to encounter this problem when you reopen the app. So it will also occur when you add camera to multi-tasking. Also this error might creep-in when you have multiple camera apps installed on your device. This is found on Android 4.4 Kitkat and 5.0 Lollipop version.


So next time when you want to exit the camera app, Press the Back button instead of multi-tasking or Home button.

This error is found on Nexus 6P, 5X, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and Nexus 10 devices along with HTC One, Moto G, Galaxy S4 GPE models as well.
