Tips on How to Fix Your Google Pixel 2XL Camera Issue
Below are the Tips on How to Fix Your Google Pixel 2XL Camera Issue. Once again, I cannot guarantee that these steps would work perfectly, but you just have to try if you are that desperate. The Tips includes:
1. Clear your Camera App Cache
This was the process that actually gave me hope, after clearing my cache, the camera functioned for the first time, after that time, it refuses to launch. But the selfie camera still remains functional after that. To delete the Camera App Cache, follow these steps:
- Open your Smartphone settings app
- Tap Apps & Notification
- Tap see all Apps > Camera.
- If you cannot locate the “see all apps” icon tap app info.
- Tap storage then clear cache.
This should help mainly your front camera and maybe the rear Quad camera.
2. Restart the Phone
Try restarting your phone to see if the camera would work.
3. Check if the Problem is Caused by other Apps
To do this, all you have to do is to:
- Press and hold the power button
- Then touch and hold the power of icon on your screen
- This would make your phone start in safe mode. You would know when the safe mode word appears at the bottom of the screen.
- Now, open the camera to see if it is working.
If the camera app works in safe mode, then an app might be the reason why the camera is not working. All you have to do is to uninstall some apps or your recently downloaded apps. Open your camera and check if you have fixed the issue. If not, redo the steps stated previously. If the problem is fixed, reinstall any problem you removed before the last one.
4. Reset your Pixel Phone
If the problem still persists after trying out the methods I stated above, then you need to Reset the phone. Backup all your file and reset your phone back to its factory defaults. This would remove all your third-party app, and it would look like you just bought a new smartphone.
5. Try this as well
If after trying the steps I stated above, and you are not satisfied with the result, then a simple hack is to place a magnet on the flashlight, and the camera should work again. With this, or one of the steps stated above you should be able to fix your Google pixel smartphone camera.
If any of these tips do not work, then you really need to take your phone to a repair or checkup store.
