When using the stock camera app on a Samsung Galaxy S6 phone, I sometimes get the error "Server error occurred. Restart Camera."

It's then necessary to close the camera app and restart it. It's a hassle that often results in missing photographic shots. Plus, the last photo taken is not saved.

I have tried clearing the data and cache for the camera app. I have also updated the stock ROM to the latest Nougat version available. I have performed a factory reset. Finally, I have sent in the phone THREE TIMES to Samsung for repairs. None of these actions has resulted in a solution.


  • What is causing this?
  • What server is the error referring to?
  • What is the solution to prevent this error?
  • Try clearing cache/data for the Camera app and the Gallery app. – DukeSilversJazz Jul 18 '17 at 19:35
  • @RMarkwald Thanks. Tried it, but server error still occurs. :( – RockPaperLizard Aug 1 '17 at 15:35
