    Pixel 3 running Android 12. Running it since September no problems, today went to take a picture and the screen was black. Was able to select different modes and take a picture but it comes out black. Tried rebooting, no luck. Tried uninstalling last camera update

    wipe cache and data for the camera app and see if that helps.

    if not then it might be a hardware issue. was the phone dropped recently?

    I had a similar problem on a samsung a20. nothing helped, i had to reinstall android. so you will probably have to. i also had a problem with screen recording. i constantly have problems with this phone, i think to buy s21 ultra. the technologeek article helped with screen recording. i advise you to solve this problem quickly, good luck!
