    are you able to use the stock camera app? lumia camera is not supported on windows 10 devides anymore , it wont be a surprise to see a few error codes time and again.
    also what os build are you on?
    further, here are links to official microsoft forums where the similar issue has been discussed and the general solution had been a hard reset. :> http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...d-843c7b8fbc2e

    if you're on windows 10, check for app updates and install
    Also check for OS updates

    Can you use other camera apps like camera360 or proshot?
