Tecno K9 Camera Not Opening
The Tecno K9 aka Spark Plus, came into the market promising big to the tecno fans.
You can buy it at affordable prices HERE.
With its 6.0 inch display, Android 7.0, finger scanner, and 13MP camera, the phone was a good bargain for the tecno lovers.
Not forgetting the affordable price for such a promising phone, BUT…..
After a while some of these phones started showing problem with its camera.
I have come across a number of Tecno spark Plus with the same issue.
The problem is when you open the camera app, it just shows a dark background. No image or anything.
Most of the time it will give you this error message,
“can’t connect to the camera please make sure to close other apps that may use camera or flashlight”
To fix this issue follow the procedure below.
- Restart the phone. Mostly restarting the phone is the easiest way to solve most Android phone issues. But if still it doesn’t open…..
- Clear cache. Navigate to phone settings and tap on applications. Locate the camera app and tap on storage. Tap on cache and clear. Then restart the phone and check. If still not Opening…..
- Update phone software. Check if there is any device updates and download it. You can do this by Settings>about>software updates. If still no luck….
- Reset phone. I have to warn you that resetting will clear all your user data so make sure you backup first. You can reset by settings>backup and reset>factory data reset.
After following the above process and still no luck then I suggest you take the phone to the nearest Carl care center or mobile phone technician. Mostly it could be the phones motherboard so it could be a bit pricey.
