Note 5 Third Party Camera App Not Working

Problem: hi i have note 5 with stock MM. My stock camera app works fine but when i try any other camera app there comes a problem specially in video. video recording starts shows well…but when i play that video it shows still image …but seeking bar moves…i hear audio until the bar reaches to end and when seeking bar reaches to end the video starts with no sound. tried wiping…factory reset…cache format…nothing worked.

Solution: The problem might be caused by the old software version that your phone is running on. I recommend that the first thing that you do is to update your phone software to Android Nougat. If your phone does not update then you should consider manually flashing the updated firmware file. You can get this file from the Sammobile website. Instructions on how to flash your phone are also available in this website.

In case the issue still persists even when your phone is already running on an updated software version then the problem might be caused by the third party app itself. Try using a different camera app from the Google Play Store.

Note 5 Unfortunately Gallery Has Stopped Working Error

Problem: Hi I have a problem with opening my gallery, won’t open up. I have a galaxy note 5. Ithe was working perfectly yesterday, then out of nowhere it said unfortunately, gallery has stopped. I shut it off, restarted , waited a day but still didn’t let me get through. I looked up videos of how to fix it and tried them but doesn’t work . Can you please help me out. Thank you

Solution: The first thing that you should do in this particular case is to clear the cache and data of the gallery app from the application manager. This will usually fix the problem. If it doesn’t then you need to proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Start the phone in Safe Mode then check if the issue still occurs in this mode. If it doesn’t then the problem could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
  • Try wiping the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

Note 5 Camera Failed Error

Problem: It says warning camera failed. Sometimes it also says …more than one app is trying to access the camera. Camera will shut down. I tried all of the methods you had on your page and it still doesn’t work.

Solution: Troubleshooting this problem is just like troubleshooting a gallery has stopped issue which we have addressed above. The first thing that you will need to do is to check if a glitch in the camera app is causing the problem by clearing the cache and data of the camera app from the application manager. If this does not fix the problem then proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Start the phone in Safe Mode. When the phone operates in this mode only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run. Check if the issue still occurs in this mode. If it doesn’t then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
  • Wipe the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

Note 5 Camera Is Blurry After Installing Screen Protector

Problem: So I recently put a screen protector on my phone and I the screen doesn’t respond to my finger but my s pen does.. Also my camera got blurry which I think is due to the fact that I used Windex to install my screen protector

Solution: If there is no hole where the camera lens is located in the screen protector and the screen protector is not clear or is not applied properly on the phone then it’s very likely that you will get blurry photos. The fact that the display does not respond to your finger after placing the screen protector means that it has not been applied properly. I recommend that you remove this screen protector then just get a new one. Make sure that you properly install it this time.
