S8 Photos Disappear From Gallery

Problem: Hello all! I am desperate for help at this point. I have gone through a ton of your different guides in an effort to fix this problem on my phone. I have even just factory reset my phone to find that I did nothing to correct the issue. So I am praying that you may be able to help me. I first came across this problem about a week or so ago when I was trying to take a quick picture but the image never saved. All I’d get was a gray screen with an exclamation mark on it. That screen would then quickly disappear out of my gallery in a matter of seconds. I tried to take the same picture about 5 or 6 times before getting frustrated and quitting. I went to Google and Reddit for help and the suggestions included to check if the SD card was fully inserted (it is) and to clear your storage/data cache (I did for camera, gallery and system UI and cache partition). I have restarted the phone over and over again between attempts at fixing this problem and I still face the same results. At first I could only take a picture through pro mode and it would save. However, now it will not save a photo from any mode i.e. auto, sport, food, etc. including pro. When I put it on the slow motion and super slow motion a notification pops up saying “the recording failed” and then exits out of the app. The notification comes without me actually starting a recording, I just have to switch it to that mode. The only way that I have been able to successfully take photos is through snapchat or pulling the camera up and screenshotting what is displayed on the screen. More recently when I take a picture and try to switch over to the gallery to see if it has saved I get a notification stating that the system UI is not responding. To which I followed your steps in an attempt to correct that problem. I have not recently dropped the phone or gotten it wet or anything that could have damaged it. It was working fine just the other day so I don’t know what could have caused this. I use my camera almost daily as I am an avid photographer and the reason I bought this phone was for the camera. Thank you in advance for all of your help!

Solution: Are the photos and videos taken by the phone stored in the microSD card? If your phone has a microSD card installed then try removing it then set the default save location of the camera to the internal storage of the phone. Once this is done check if the issue still occurs. If it does then backup your phone data and do a factory reset Once the reset is complete do not install any apps in your phone yet. Try to check if the problem is still present.

If the above steps doesn’t fix the problem then you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked as this could already be caused by a faulty hardware component.

S8 Camera Fail Error

Problem: My 8 month old S8 with no damage as a “Camera Fail” error message when choosing the camera app Icon.  It is stuck in “selfie” mode and unusable. However, the camera works fine with any/all other apps that connect with the camera, i.e. text attachment, photo compass, etc. I have tried the cache delete, force stop and soft reset.  I am not ready to do a full factory reset until I have explored “ALL” options since the camera does at time function. Any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. Regards

Related Problem: Hi all, Whenever I try to open the camera app I receive an error message (Camera Failed), I tried everything to fix this issue with my device, – Force stop & clearing Data – Wipe cache partition – Factory reset – Samsung original system re-flash But nothing fixed this issue, so would you please help me with getting a solution, the phone has no warranty because the screen is cracked. Thanks

Solution: For this particular issue you should try clearing the cache and data of the camera app from the application manager. If the issue still occurs after this then you should try to check if an app you downloaded is causing the problem. To do this just start the phone in Safe Mode. If the issue does not occur in this mode then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

One last troubleshooting step to consider is a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before oding the reset.

If the above steps fails to fix the problem then you should bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.

S8 Camera Failed Error After Camera Replacement

Problem: Hi, my rear camera got scratched and replaced it with and new one. I can’t get the rear camera to work. The message “camera failed” appears every time. I have tried all your suggestions. Also bought another new camera and reinstalled it several times and nothing. When I put the old camera it works without any problems. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Solution: The best thing you can do right now is to check if a software glitch is causing the problem by doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset. If after the reset the problem persists the this is most likely caused by a faulty hardware component possibly due to the replacement camera. You should have this checked at a service center.

S8 Camera Pictures Covered In Rainbow Stripes

Problem: Droid guy, need your help.  I received a Samsung Galaxy S8 through a company purchase (we upgraded).  The phone that i received is having a lot of issues. Our tech guy wiped clean the phone and did a system reset before giving me the phone. There are two annoying issues.  The first is that the base camera app is “glitchy”. when taking a selfie, the picture is covered about 1/5 of the photo in a rainbow-stripe, going from top to bottom. It occurs on every selfie taken, in slightly different spots, but always covering about 1/5 of the photo from top to bottom, kind of like it is crossing the screen when the photo is taken.  It is not there when taking the photo, but appears afterward. I don’t know how to get rid of it. To add, when taking normal photos, they turn out OK, but when viewing them as multiple “thumbnails” they have various pixelated white stripes on them (horizontal and vertical). When you click on them, they stripes go away. The second issue is that when using the basic texting app, they phone freezes and resets.  It usually happens before i can type a sentence. It is constant with the base app or Verizon texting. I downloaded the Textra app, and it works fine. however, sometimes when using Facebook or other apps, the phone again freezes when i am typing. I have done many resets, but not a “hard reset” yet. I think that may be my next step. I have not read much about the issues i am having, so this may be unique?! I can send a few examples of the selfie issue.

Solution: Does your phone have a screen protector installed? If it does then remove this then wipe with a microfiber cloth the spot where the front camera is located. Once this is done check if the problem still occurs. If it does then the next step is to backup your phone data then do a factory reset. If after the reset the same camera problem occurs then this is most likely caused by a faulty hardware component already which can only be fixed at a service center. 

Regarding the issue of the phone freezing when using apps this will most likely be resolved by the factory reset.

Solution: Since you have already exhausted all other software related troubleshooting steps  then the only thing you can do now before performing a factory reset is to check if the problem occurs in Safe Mode. In case it doesn’t then the problem is most likely caused by an app you downloaded. If it still occurs even in Safe Mode then you should definitely proceed with the factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.
