    Just a few days ago this began.
    The camera keeps trying to focus repeatedly. In and out....in and out, and in the event that it does satisfy itself, the picture is not in focus.
    I did drop the phone the day before I noticed the issue.
    Does anyone know if there is a fix?
    My camera is useless, and I use it nearly every day.

    Sorta feels like I'm getting the Kaepernick treatment here. Sheeesh!
    I figured that I'd gamble with $14 and order a replacment camera.
    Here's a short clip of how it was behaving.
    The faint ticking sound of the camera trying to focus can be heard in the clip.

    After a quick and simple replacement, the camera works flawlessly!
    Then my wife and I pre-orderd 2 new Note 8s.....
    This is the old camera...[​IMG]

    How is the new camera working? I'm sure the problems with focus probably was from being dropped.

    Hey Tis,
    I've edited my original post to include that pertinent piece of info.
    It works like new!
    Yes, the focus problems began right after the drop.
