    Just today out of no where when I try to launch the camera, or any camera application like 6snap or blink lens, the camera or app will simply not launch. This has come out of the blue. I've tried soft resets and hard resets to no avail.

    I can't give anymore details since this has literally randomly stopped working?

    Despite this lack of info - does anyone know what to do?

    Sounds very weird. Even after hard reset? For how many months you've been using your phone?

    I've had it for one and a half years now. I updated to 8.1 when the Dev preview came out. So yep - it is very weird all of a sudden.

    As an update - it seems that camera related apps in the store also hang when loading. So I can't even install apps like proshot

    Ok. This thread can be closed. After doing 3 hard resets and 10 soft resets at various stages - the camera is back. I don't know what happened but it would be awful if someone else was to experience this.

    Aaaannnd... it doesn't work again. What on earth is going on?!

    Try unpinning Cortana from the start screen. Ever since doing this I have not had the issue.

    Heard that we need to use Nokia Software Recovery to flash it back, did anyone try that to make it work?

    I'm I've had this same problem on my 620. I think you need to do a hoc factory reset. I know there was a tutorial of how to do it somewhere. Keep in mind that this is not Microsoft's fault. They did warn you about the problems that the dev preview can bring.
