Microsoft Lumia 640 XL secondary camera issues

Q: Microsoft Lumia 640 XL secondary camera issues

Hello. I have a Microsoft Lumia 640 XL since March and after a very short time the secondary camera seems to bug me. Every time I am trying to switch between the main one and the secondary it keeps showing me "SOMETHING WENT WRONG". I have even factory reset the phone and nothing good happened. Is there anyone that could help me? Please!

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Lumia 640 XL secondary camera issues

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello.
1 - Not sure if this is exclusive to the 640 XL model or certain versions of it, but why do the camera settings revert to "Auto" values as soon as the camera application is restarted?
2 - The white balance that is apparent when the camera is open but not taking pictures (preview) is very accurate relative to reality, but as soon as I take a picture with the white balance set to "Auto", the colors change from the ones apparent in preview. There is also no white balance setting that matches the colors of the preview. Is it possible to have the colors not change from how they appear in preview?
This is Windows 10 Mobile.
Thanks a lot, cheers.

A:Issues with the Lumia Camera

It does that because it is unable to save the profile.
As for question two, I'm not sure sadly.

Like in lumia 730 and why the shutter speed not working effectively in inbuilt camera application in windows 10 device it changes automatically to fast shutter or some other even on fully manual setting as it use to work perfectly in windows 8.1 using lumia camera classic? I've 14393.448 build installed.

A:why Microsoft not letting us to install old lumia camera application in windows 10 mobile

They do that to direct you to Microsoft Camera. Even if you installed it, it would direct you to it.
I'm not 100% sure, but that seems to be the likely reason.

The last camera App that included the panorama mode, creates unnaturally saturated fluorescent blue skies and overly yellowish sunny parts of the photo. Sand gets yellow, Sunsets too orange.
The previous was ok in colour rendering.
I have the official anniversary win10 and 1053 firmware.
How can I get rid of the "faulty" version of camera app?

Front camera on my Lumia 640XL is not working. I thought it is just bug, because I've noticed it like two months ago, few days after anniversary update rolled out. I hoped that next updates will make it work again, but problem persisted so I've tried hard reset. No success.
When I try to switch between rear and front camera it will freeze on black screen, I can only see buttons for take photo, settings, etc. It doesn't work in any app - standard Camera app, Skype, Messenger - black screen everywhere.
Is there something else I can try or is it definitely hw problem and the fact it happend after AU is just coincidence?

Here is situation, I ordered two Verizon Lumia Icons for myself and my cousin. The first one that I received was a white version (my cousin's phone). After starting it up it updated to Lumia Denim a few hours later. A few days later it manually updated it to Windows 10.
Later that week, the second phone which is black arrived. That phone completely skipped the Denim update and went straight to Windows 10. The problem is that I wanted the Denim camera which has Rich Capture, etc... I tried downloading the Lumia camera directly from the App Store, but it does not have those features.
I have searched high and low trying to figure out if I could sideload the camera like on my Android daily driver. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Trying to get the Lumia Denim camera on Nokia Icon with Windows 10

Yeah the Lumia camera only actually works on Denim. Unfortunately even if you was able to download it, it would redirect you to Microsoft Camera.

I recently saw this post by Coldplay on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/coldplay/photos/a.10150274960980253.534856.15253175252/10157409072455253/?type=3&theater ) and thought that why we can't we upload simple panorama shots like this on Facebook? It seems that it horizontally stretches around 200 degrees and about 60 degrees vertically.
I looked up multiple articles and found this - http://thehightechhobbyist.com/tutorial-how-to-create-interactive-aerial-360-degree-panoramas-for-facebook/
So I edited the EXIF as instructed. However, even though Facebook detects it as a panorama image while I upload (shows the globe icon momentarily as I upload), the image shows up as a flat image once I post it.

Microsoft removed radio app from Lumia 950 XL after my update.!! What the hell..!!! Why they removed it. ??? Now all is completed. No radio, no apps like Snapchat, no video calling apps like android. I think it's time to move to android.. 5 years I'm using Windows Phone.. But Windows done it.. I'm moving.. (soooo sad)!!!

Microsoft Lumia 950XL repeatedly getting hanged after latest cumulative update. Am i the only one facing this issue ? Does anyone have a solution to this ? This hanging happens every time i unlock the device, more often at lower battery levels, Tried the factory reset once (as suggested by Microsoft India) nothing changes. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I forgot the screen lock password i need to know how i can unlock my microsoft lumina 640

A:How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Hmmm... could be PSU failure. Can you tell the PSU brand and specs? If it's a cheapo one (easily spotted by anyone here if you post the specs) it's almost guaranteed to be your culprit. If not, then it remains a likely candidate.
