The new Google smartphones (Pixel 2) come with an amazing camera, although some users have complained of having issues with their camera. The common complaint that has been reported is the camera reporting “Warning: Camera Failed” after using it normally for some days. As soon as this error appears, the camera will stop working and close. Some have tried to reboot their smartphone or reset it to factory settings and the problem still persists.
I’ll explain different methods that you can use to solve the camera failed issue on your Google Pixel 2.
How to Fix Google Pixel 2 Camera Failed Problem:
- First, you will need to restart your Google Pixel 2; this usually fixes the camera issue. To do this, touch and hold the Power and the Home keys at the same time for up to 7 seconds. Release the keys as soon as the phone switches off and vibrates.
- Locate Settings, click on the Application Manager and locate the Camera app. Click on Force stop and you can now click on, clear data and clear cache.
- You can also try to clear the cache partition, this method can also be used to solve the camera failed problem on Google Pixel 2. Switch off your device, then press and hold these keys at the same time Power, Home and Volume Up. Release your fingers from the keys as soon as the Android System Recovery mode appears. Use the Volume Down key to highlight the Wipe Cache partition and use the Power key to confirm your selection.
After following the steps above, if the camera issue persists on your Google Pixel 2, I will suggest that your retailer or you can contact Google and ask for a replacement.
