    Welcome to AF armirgalaxy!!
    Have you tried a reboot? Or a battery pull?
    Did this happen after an update?

    Hmm, well, a battery pull like you did is just about the same thing as a reboot.;)
    By reboot, I mean power off, then on.

    Try going into your camera app and clearing the data and cache?

    Did this happen out of the blue, or after a recent OTA update?

    If clearing the Camera app's data and cache didn't help, have you tried installing/using a third-party camera app from Google Play? If one of those also show an error trying to access your phone's camera it's possible there's a hardware issue.
