    You're not alone... Check this thread (and many others on this forum): http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...-new-post.html

    There's no fix, you have to get it repaired on Nokia (Microsoft) Care or get a replacement.

    Not sure if this will work for you but I had the same problem with my Lumia 640. I uninstalled Lumia Camera, did a soft reboot, and reinstalled it and it seems to be working OK.

    No way, its a hardware issue with 830.

    This issue seems to be a little widespread for the Lumia 830.
    I was about to purchase a second hand unit, when I tested it I would get the same error message no matter what camera app I tried to use.

    Unfortunately I had to decline the seller and went home empty handed.

    Even i had the same problem after updating it to windows phone 8.1 update 2. Thought it to be software problem,but neither the hard reset nor the soft reset came to the rescue. Took it to the nearest service center and now it is with them. Hope to see it soon.

    Did the problem came after updating OS? Or just like that? You can read that here on Central that it is a widespread issue. Submit your phone to care center as soon as possible. It is for same reason I am stopping myself to buy L830.

    Check in Privacy settings (10, not sure about 8.1) to see if the app is actually allowed to use the camera

    I have the issue on my 720. Initially I would get pink boxes when on camera and slowly now the camera has stopped functioning completely. It works after a few reboots for a few minutes before going off again. Nokia care said, its my screen problem and I need to get my display replaced. I don't know how right they are.

    I've got the same issue. It occured after installing the latest windows 10 Mobile build.

    Tried hard and soft reset, Windows Device Recovery Tool,.. nothing worked. I always got the "Something went wrong" message when launching Lumia Camera, launching Windows Camera results in a crash without any error message. Tried the Camera360 app but it just shows a black screen.

    The front camera is still working.

    I sent my Lumia to the repair center. It looks that they have to flash the firmware.
