    Following an update about 2 weeks ago on my 950XL Dual Sim with Windows 10 Mobile 1709 (10.0.15254.1), I get the following error when trying to use the Front Camera: 0xA00F4271 (0xC00D3704).

    The odd thing is my wife's phone (950XL Dual Sim) started to do the exact same thing about two weeks ago. It's a bit of a stretch to say that both of our front facing cameras have failed at the same time.

    Anyone seen this. Google search shows a few.... all dating to about a 8 months to 1 year ago and with a variety of Windows Phones.

    Not sure. Hadn't tried front camera in awhile. Seems to work so far.

    I've had this problem with my 950XL dual SIM for a few months. I took it into a MS store, where after a complete factory reset, they said it was broken (hardware error). Also, they wouldn't fix it - they offered me $50 for a $500 phone!
    I've been living without it, and though it's taken Windows Hello out, it's more of a minor annoyance than a reason to buy a new phone.

    This was the reason i sold my 950xl at a discount on eBay, and then bought a new 950xl on eBay πŸ˜‹

    I don't take selfies so yes I just realized mine is doing this.

    Will have to try the wife's and see if hers is broken too.

    Had this issue with Lumia 1520. It came on suddenly after a routine software update, then off dead again.πŸ˜…

    The wife's phone is working fine.

    I found an online source (ebay) for the front-facing camera module. I also have the instructions how to tear the phone apart and replace it. I wonder if it's worth the trouble.
