Help OEM camera app problems

Ive ben having problems with my camera app for the last 2 weeks every time i open it its just a black screen. I did a hard reset it worked for about 3 hours then quit worken again does any1 have any ideas of what could be wrong? thank you

I had a similar problem. It was because I was using a third party program to change my screen brightness. 100% brightness in a third party app is actually more than 100% to the phone. This confuses the camera app, which checks the brightness level. To fix this, use your other app to set the brightness below 90%.

I also found that the built in brightness screen was force closing on me when I had this problem.
