Galaxy S5 camera problem found with no fix in sight


It is not unusual for recently released mobile devices to develop issues for some users and now there are reports coming in about a Samsung Galaxy S5 camera problem, which has no fix in sight and may need the handset replacing.

We have already heard how the Samsung Galaxy S5 might not be as water resistant as the company claims, and now a number of S5 owners on the US Verizon Wireless network have been experiencing a serious issue with the handsets camera.

They are being met with a “Warning: Camera Failed” message, which can’t even be rectified with a reboot or even a factory reset leaving the only option being a replacement device. It is not known currently if Galaxy S5 handsets on other networks have been affected or unlocked versions.

Hopefully some official acknowledgment will come from Samsung shortly but a growing thread on the XDA community is seeing more owners reporting the issue.

Have you been affected by this problem?

    Picked up my Galaxy S5 on o2 last Friday and yesterday it developed this problem. When launching the camera it just says, ‘Warning: Camera Failed’ and closes down… So its not just a Verizon thing.

    Over the weekend the videos started messing up. When I’d go to watch them, the video wouldn’t play…. missing files was the error message. Then pictures would be missing, but the file would be on the phone. I shut the phone off and lost other photos that were taken in the same grouping. Verizon is sending me another phone. Hopefully from a “good batch”.
