How to fix camera failure on Galaxy S5?

A buddy of mine just got a new Galaxy S5, and was pretty happy about it. However, over the weekend he got an error message that says, “Warning, camera failure.” We power cycled it a few times and forced closed the app, but nothing seems to correct the issue. Anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Samsung's support site might be of help to you:


I have read about this on a number of forums. It seemed to be more Verizon S5s than others, but that could have just been because Verizon is a big company and has moved more units. Both Verizon and Samsung have issued statements indicating that they are aware of the issue and will replace any defective devices. It’s a headache, but it looks like you will have no problem getting the issue resolved.
