Lumia 640XL - Front camera not working

Q: Lumia 640XL - Front camera not working

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?

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.

A:Front camera working but main (rear) camera is not

Can anyone help me?
I've tried updating my camera drivers in device manager, uninstalling the camera and booting windows 10 again...to no avail. Still no main camera....only the front camera works.
Does the rear camera need seperate drivers? How do I check this?

Thanks again.

Can you pair a Bluetooth mouse with a Lumia 640XL? I use remote desktop and TeamViewer quite a bit. I'd like to be able to pair a mouse with my phone and mirror it to my tv. Sort of a poor mans continuum. Will that work? And if so, how do you do it? I have a Bluetooth mouse but I can't get any device to recognize it without the dongle that came with it. Do I need a special kind of mouse? I really appreciate the help.

Hi and welcome to windows central forum.
Jio apps are not available on windows phone yet. You could activate the sim on a separate device and then switch your device and use the jio card in 640xl.

I need some help from you guys... I have a Lumia 640XL (W10).
Recently, i tried to turn my phone on, and the bitlock message appeared, and i can't get rid of it.
The problem is i can't solve it via USB recovery tool because the USB port is not working for some reason, it is probably broken.

you require minimum 2gb of internal phone memory in order to successfully update to anniversary update.

Moreover we are expecting a new version on the upcoming patch Tuesday. The upcoming patch will hugely improve the experience with more bug fixes and improvements. '
If you can manage a hard reset and fresh start with your phone , i would suggest you to upgrade to windows 10 because upgrading to windows 10 should always be followed by a hard reset to counter and fix any glitch arisen due to the upgrade and if you cant then stick with 8.1.

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.

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.

Start witha soft reset (hold power 15 secs), elsewhere best for you is a hard reset for fixing all problems once

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.
Anyone made those interactive 360 photos?

They do that to direct you to Microsoft Camera. Even if you installed it, it would direct you to it.

Hey
Today i just bought some ear phones, with a connected mouth piece. Problem is that my two front ports are dodgy for the microphone and headphones. So if i put the jacks from my headset into the back, i have to take out my speaker input.. Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated
Thanks
 

A:Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or newegg.com for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

I tried downloading the latest windows insider updates but still no go. I do believe that the problem is with the adapter and not the phone. However, it makes no sense to me as to why it wouldn't work. It's made for apple devices, That could be why. Other than that, I might be doing something wrong. Let me know.

The Audio front panel (where you plug head sets) on my PC is not working. I have a IN9 32X-MAX Wi-Fi MB and am using a Xcilo Windtunnel Extreme Case. I plugged the cable (from the case) marked Audio into the the
FP-Audio1 socket in my board, I assume this is correct? I have updated the Realtek drivers (AC'97 Audio Codecs?) but the front panel nor Realtek HD Audio Manager register the head set (Creative HS-390, free with WiC Collectors Edition) however the head set works if plugged into the backpanel...whats going wrong?
 

A:Front Panel not working

Examine your board. Trace the connections from non-working external socket. It is likely that is no cable going to the socket on the motherboard, or there is no cable from the optical drive to the correct port or socket. There are usually two to four ports for audio on the motherboard. There are also two to four ports on the audio card if you are using a PCI Audio card. On some boards, those cables must be connected by a very thin cable with special plugs on each end.

I assume you have already examined all the possibilities in the Control Panel.

A:Front Usb Panel Not Working.

by "changed my cpu Cabinet" I presume you mean you got a new case for your computer. Make sure you connected the cables from your front panel correctly to the USB and Audio headers on your MB. Some cases have cables with one plug for the USB and one for the Audio but others have individual connectors so you need to consult your motherboard manual to suss out which is which. If you only used one of the USB headers on your motherboard try to move it to the 2nd one

Hello!

I have a Gigabyte motherboard in a Antec Lanboy case. The case has two front USB ports. The USB ports do not work with most devices. For example if I plug in a USB key or a webcam I get the balloon that says "the device may not be recognized". But if I plug in a keyboard, mouse, or RF receiver, it works. Could it be that the front ports are USB 1.1 or are underpowered? I've read that Gigabyte USB connections are a bit different, but I've checked them before and are as illustrated in the manual By the way, I'm on XP SP2 and the USB connections from the mobo are not a single block - they are individual pins.

A:USB on front panel not working

difficult-

It'll be hard to troubleshoot if you are uncomfortable inside the case. One possible scenario: when the shop installed the new optical drive, they may have unplugged/knocked loose the cable from the motherboard to the front panel, but the only way to check is to open the case.

If you just need more USB ports, and they don't have to be necessarily in front, try: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817111490, or something like it, there are many options. If you have a walk-in like Fry's, CompUsa handy, or maybe even a Radio Shack, you could save the shipping, but maybe pay a little more. Just plug one into a known good USB port, and away you go! :knock:

I downloaded a plugin for Winamp that allows it to output 5.1. The only difference this made was that now the center speaker has sound as well as the front. The rear still do not work

what's avia 5.1 surround sound?

what's 1/2 life 2?

what's cyber dvd?

i've got a 5.1 sb live card and run 4.1 klipsch speakers thru the creative software and when i do the test of r front, l front, r rear, l rear they all work properly so it sounds like you have things that aren't needed and are mucking up the works.

Hello, I recently bought a new motherboard and tower. I have installed all the latest drivers from Asus and know the case uses AC'97 sound and have set the Mobo accordingly. However, when I plug in my headphones (tried multiple pair) it continues to play from main speakers, with nothing coming through the headphones.

when I plug in the speakers from the rear jack, a pop-up tells me something has been plugged in. not the case with the front jack.

also, I have checked "Playback Devices" and it shows me the headphones as "Not plugged-in".

while playing around I managed to get the H Phones to work, but the speakers didn't mute when I did. in tinkering, it went away again and wont come back.

any ideas what I could do?

Hi Novercalis,
Are you sure that your front jacks are connected?
You forgot to mention your .OS, but anyway you can find all settings from control panel

I have a friend who has an E-Machine. (Not sure of model type). He has one USB port on the front and, from what he tells me 1 USB port on the back. When he plugs something into the back USB port, everything works fine. When he plugs a device (printer, ipod, etc..) into the front port nothing happens. They system does not recognize that a USB device has been plugged in. Any ideas why things would work in the back USB but not the front? Is there a setting somewhere that may have turned off the front port for some reason? Doesn't seem to be a resource conflict as this happens when there is nothing plugged into the back port. I appreciate all your great assistance.

Hey guys.

I'm having a rather unusual issue with my USB 3.0 ports (Asmedia) on the front side. The back ones work fine so I'm unsure if it's anything to do with the drivers or even in the BIOS? Could anyone suggest any troubleshooting methods?

What does Device Manager show, any issue with USB Controllers?

Make sure the case USB ports wire connector is plugged into the Motherboard. Unplug then plug the connector back in.

I have Creative Inspire 5.1 5200 and a Creative Audigy 2 Platinum. I recently came back from the Creative site, updating all my products. Now, my front right doesn't have any sound. I decided to go further and check the inside of the speaker... it looked perfectly fine. I hooked it up somewhere else and it worked.

Now it seems to be a problem with the woofer where everything is connected.

Yes, don't ask, I've been playing with Creative Speaker settings and the EAX console for a LONG time.

And now, sometimes when I plug the speaker into the right channel on the woofer, it plays as center.

I can't properly calibrate the speakers because after choosing rear left for instance, the sound plays again there and I can't choose it again.

All help appreciated.

A:Front Right Speaker not working (5.1)

Actually, for some reason, it doesn't detect my front right speaker, but it works. Then, for front right, it sounds like all the speakers are playing at low pitch.

Something is definately wrong.

I am running Vista, I cannot get my front mic (headset) working, I have tried everything I have seen posted on this site.

My headset earphones are working and vista shows that the front mic is working and it is checked as the default device.

But I cannot get anything from the mic when I test it in any programs.

I have tried connecting 2 different headsets and a standalone mic...nothing!!
