Troubleshooting tips

  • To enable all features and get optimized performance, visit the Play Store to ensure you are running the latest version of Motorola Camera.
  • Third-party cases can interfere with the camera. Try removing the case if you have image-quality issues with photos.
  • Please make sure there is not a protective covering over the camera lens.
  • Ensure the camera lens is clean and free from any obstructions. Take a dry cloth and gently clean the camera lens.
  • Make sure your finger is not covering or shading the camera lens while taking the photo or video.
  • Still experiencing issues? Try clearing the camera cache.

    Go to Settings > AppsSee all apps > Camera

    To free up space by removing temporary files, touch Storage > Clear cache. Over time, the cache builds up again, so repeat if a problem occurs.

    If problems still occur, then delete all data saved in the app by touching Storage > Clear data. Be careful - there’s no way to undo this.
