Half the time when I try to use my camera the auto focus fails to work and the phone makes a clicking noise. Is this post of the pink color issue with these phones?
normally i would say to pull up he camera app in settings-apps-all and clear the data and cache but if its making weird noises you might need a repair tech to look at it.
yeah try clearing those first..hopefully its just something going wonky with the app itself and not with the camera.
shoot. sorry to hear that..odds are they will want to do a factory reset on it. you can back it up and do this on your own or if youre not comfy doing it they can..odds are this is the route they will take
out of curiosity have you updated any apps or added any apps prior to having this problem? try this just in case..you'll have to google how to do it..im space casing it right now..but boot the phone into safe mode..this will shut down all 3rd party apps..then try again..if it still messes up then its for sure something with the camera itself..if it works then there is probably a rogue app messing it up.
It's any app that uses the camera. I did try the safe mode but it disabled messages which is my primary means of communicating. So I can't leave it in safe mode long enough to actually test if it is an app since it seems to randomly do it.there was still the clicking noise from the top speaker when I was trying to test it but the screen was too dark to tell if the screen was wobbling.
it might just be something loose internally if its a bit random. normally i wouldnt suggest it but have you shook the phone around a bit side to side up down etc to see if you can get it to bump around in there?
I have but it did nothing, I think it's the focus hardware giving issue. Or it's an issue with firmware level code for the camera specifically.... But all pictures are slightly out of focus and get grainy at lower levels of light.
i havent messed with my M7 in a pretty long while. might have to check it out (charge it since its by far dead right now lol) and do all the current updates that it has missed.
