    Droid Razr Maxx - ICS - Stock Camera App doesn't Initialize

    Just as the title states; I can't access my camera.

    Notes:

    Soft reset (battery pull) and hard reset (Factory reset) did not fix this.

    I downloaded another Camera app and it says "Can't Connect to Camera"

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your help.

    Is it possible that you disabled your camera? Check settings, Apps, scroll along the top bar to choose "All"... find the camera app (if it is disabled, it will be listed towards the bottom), open camera. If it shows "Enable" then it is disabled. Click on enable to get it working again.

    You could also try to restart your phone to see if they will get it going.

    Restarting (many times) has not helped. Also the camera app is enabled (note that within settings after I open the camera non of the objects are clickable).

    It sounds like when you installed ICS that it did not complete initiating all the apps. Usually when that happens, a restart will initiate the apps that didn't on install. The only suggestion I can think of is to do a fdr. I am guessing you are not rooted. If so then it could involve something different.

    I am sure an fdr will solve your problem. It seems to be the one sure thing that has solved almost all ICS problems.

    It must be that the other camera apps don't work because they rely on the stock camera app to do some of their functions... although I am just guessing but seems to make the most sense.

    Oh sorry. Easy way to say factory data reset (or restore). It wipes your phone and returns it to stock, like out of the box.

    I notice your original post said you did a factory reset but you may actually have to do another one. For some reason it seems as though things did not load or initiate properly.
