I've got a Galaxy Nexus and recently I cannot access my gallery or camera. When I tap both on the Gallery icon or on the camera icon I got this message "No archives available", then the app shuts down. The only way to overcome as far as now is to completely reboot the phone. Phone is not rooted.

  • Are you running the latest Android version, 4.2.2? Jul 2, 2013 at 15:53
  • Yes, it's a GSM model (I'm in Europe), running 4.2.2, no root or anything

Try clearing the Gallery cache.

  1. Go into Settings->Apps and scroll over to show 'ALL' apps.
  2. Scroll down and open 'Gallery'
  3. If the 'Clear Cache' button is greyed-out, then you'll have to 'Force stop' the app first, then go ahead and clear the cache.

Exit out and try to open your Gallery again.
