Samsung Phone Camera Photo Problems

Samsung phones are well known for taking pictures that feature clear and generally excellent quality. Occasionally, Samsung phone cameras can sometimes fail because they encounter one of several common problems that can affect picture quality. Careful trouble shooting can lead to a quick diagnosis of the cause of the problem so that you can resolve it quickly and begin to take photos again with your Samsung phone as usual.

If you have Samsung phone camera photo problems, try restarting the phone to see if this fixes the problem. If this doesn’t work, analyze your phone for any apps or systems that are requiring updates which could affect your camera. Finally, Restart in Safe Mode.

If your phone camera is working normally in Safe Mode, then the problem is probably with a outside app that is causing havoc with the Samsung phone’s camera software. Restart the phone when it is out of Safe Mode and delete any apps that have been installed recently. Also, be sure to restart your phone after you delete each app to ensure that every app affected is fully uninstalled.

Now, go ahead and clear your Samsung phone app cache and all of the residual storage data. Then, start your camera again and see if it is working properly again.

If your issue is still not resolved, take the microSD card out and then reinsert it again. There have been cases where Samsung phones produce errors when reading microSD cards which lead to failure of the phone camera.

If you receive a message to Reformat the microSD card, you may need to go ahead and reformat the microSD card. Be aware that reformatting the microSD card can lead to a loss of all the data on the microSD card. To avoid this, make sure to back up all of these files by transferring them to your PC or MAC.

You can also try to Turn Off Smart Stay which uses the camera that is front facing for selfies to maintain  the position of your face when you are in a position of looking at the phone screen for an extended period without you touching the camera.

Finally, you can try to resolve the issue by conducting a hard reset to reset the Samsung phone back to the original factory settings.

To do this, go to the Camera app. Go to Flash and choose from either Flash Off, Flash Auto or Flash On, which activates the flash for every picture taken.
