    Hello Guys, I've try this problem previously and here are some of tips that might helpful:
    -Clear Camera cache and data

    Here’s how you do it…
    From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
    Tap Settings and scroll to ‘Applications’ section.
    Touch Application Manager.
    Swipe left or right to display contents of ‘ALL’ tab.
    Scroll to and tap on the Camera.
    Tap Force close button.
    Tap the Clear cache button.
    Tap the Clear data button, then OK.

    Noted: Don’t worry, none of your pictures or videos will be deleted, however, all your settings with the camera will be reset to default.

    IF PROBLEMS STILL OCCUR, THE BEST WAY IS TO DO MASTER RESET:

    Perform master reset on your Note 4.

    Turn off the Galaxy Note 4 completely.
    Press and hold the Volume Up and the Home keys together, then press and hold the Power key.
    When the Note 4 vibrates, release both the Home and Power keys but continue holding the Volume Up key.
    When the Android System Recovery shows on the screen, release the Vol Up key.
    Using the Volume Down key, highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’ and press the Power key to select it.
    Now highlight ‘Yes — delete all user data’ using the Vol Down key and press the Power key to begin the reset.
    When the master reset is complete, highlight ‘Reboot system now’ and hit the Power key.
    The Note 4 will restart but it will be longer than usual. When it reaches the Home screen, then begin your setup.
    If the reset failed, then the phone has to be checked by a technician as it is a possible hardware issue.

    NOTED: Make sure you make a backup of files you don’t want to lose during the problem. Remember, all your settings, information, apps and files saved in the phone’s internal memory will be gone. If the reset failed, then the phone has to be checked by a technician as it is a possible hardware issue.

    Thanks for reading hope it would help.

    Camera failed without apparent reason

    Problem: My camera doesn’t work most of the time. When I try to open the camera it says “Warning: Camera failed.” Please help as it’s very inconvenient.

    Troubleshooting: We understand the inconvenience this problem brings especially to owners who often use the camera. So, we will help you find a way to know what the problem is and fix it if possible. But since we don’t have a single clue as of now why the phone is acting up like this, let’s take the safest route in troubleshooting it.
    Step 1: Reboot the phone and see if that helps. If it were just a minor glitch in the firmware or hardware, then a simple reboot will take care of the problem. The “Camera failed” error doesn’t just mean the sensor failed to load but it could also be that the Camera app itself crashed leaving the sensor running without an app handling it. Thus, a reboot will fix it.
    Step 2: Clear Camera cache and data. You should go after the Camera app first and the best way to do that is to clear its cache and data. Don’t worry, none of your pictures or videos will be deleted, however, all your settings with the camera will be reset to default. If the problem had something to do with the settings, then this procedure will fix it. Here’s how you do it…

    From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
    Tap Settings and scroll to ‘Applications’ section.
    Touch Application Manager.
    Swipe left or right to display contents of ‘ALL’ tab.
    Scroll to and tap on the Camera.
    Tap Force close button.
    Tap the Clear cache button.
    Tap the Clear data button, then OK.
    Step 3: Boot your phone in safe mode. There is a possibility that a third-party app crashed and caused this problem. It is common to third-party camera apps and/or gallery apps. So, to rule out that possibility, boot your Galaxy Note 4 in safe mode and observe.
    Turn off the phone completely.
    Press and hold the Power key and the Volume Down key.
    When the phone starts to boot, release the Power key but continue holding the Vol Down key until the phone finished restarting.
    Safe mode will be displayed at the lower left corner; you may release the Volume Down key now.
    While in safe mode, try opening the app again and see if the error message still pops up. If so, then you to rule out the possibility that it’s a firmware issue.
    Step 4: Perform master reset on your Note 4. If you followed the first three steps and the problem remained, it’s time you performed full hard reset on your phone. However, before you actually do that, make sure you make a backup of files you don’t want to lose during the problem. Remember, all your settings, information, apps and files saved in the phone’s internal memory will be gone.
    Turn off the Galaxy Note 4 completely.
    Press and hold the Volume Up and the Home keys together, then press and hold the Power key.
    When the Note 4 vibrates, release both the Home and Power keys but continue holding the Volume Up key.
    When the Android System Recovery shows on the screen, release the Vol Up key.
    Using the Volume Down key, highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’ and press the Power key to select it.
    Now highlight ‘Yes — delete all user data’ using the Vol Down key and press the Power key to begin the reset.
    When the master reset is complete, highlight ‘Reboot system now’ and hit the Power key.
    The Note 4 will restart but it will be longer than usual. When it reaches the Home screen, then begin your setup.
    If the reset failed, then the phone has to be checked by a technician as it is a possible hardware issue.
