Cannot Connect to CameraSupport

    I was wondering if anybody else is having a problem with their camera. 3 times today and a few times yesterday I tried to take a picture with the camera and it just doesn't open. I then get a message that says "Cannot connect to camera". I try everything but no matter what I can't use the camera unless I reboot the phone. I can then usually use it a few times before I get the same message. Any help would be appreciated.

    I've done a search and it seems the barcode scanner may be the culprit. I uninstalled it and I'll report back after a day or so.

    I had this happen (had this happen with my droid X before). Are you running a custom rom? My issue came running revolution HD when my phone started to run very slow and then I think the camera crashed. As I found from my droid X, when the camera "crashes" you cant connect to it again without completely restarting your phone. I went back to a more stock rom and now problems. And I did not have any bar code scanner installed fwiw.

    having the same issue. 2 times so far i've gotten the "camera cannot connect" error. This time i uninstalled any app that accesses the camera.

    I'll let you know if it fixes. Hopefully this is something easily fixed with an update from samsung or google.

    just started having trouble this morning. No barcode scanner.

    Happened right after a couple of updates. Not sure if they are related. It was tiny flashlight and twitter I think that updated.

    I had this happen once the other day as well. I don't have bar code scanner installed, but I do have Fx Camera (although I've yet to even open it).

    Hasn't happened since I rebooted.

    This happened twice to me today, very annoying. No bar code reader, but I do have Retro Camera and My Measures. Both times I fixed it temporarilyu with a reboot. Hope this is fixed soon!

    Happened to me a bunch. No barcode stuff installed. I did have a flashlight app. Between that and lousy signal I returned the phone for another. No issues on this one.

    I've had similar issues with barcode APPS - like Amazon.
