  • Try SIMMI test and see if pass or fails by following this steps👇

    Open calculator >press .12345+= > single test > wide angle camera test > see if you can click picture there and also hows behaviour of camera there. If test passes than there is no problem with hardware and you can follow below steps to see if those help 👇

    Clear cache & storage of camera app by going to 👇

    Settings >apps & notifications>see all apps>camera>storage >clear cache/clear storage>restart your app and see if this helps

    Ifnot try to reset camera settings and check again by going to 👇

    Open camera app>settings (gear like icon) >bottom scroll reset to default option> select Yes>restart camera app and see behaviour again.

    If nothing helps than try to backup your important data and do factory data reset to see if that helps

    Settings>system>reset options>erase all data.

    For me there is no any issue with camera on latest firmware .123


  • Hi, we'd request you follow the below steps:

    1. Check your phone for latest software version.

    2. Go to Camera settings

    3. Clear cache & storage of Camera App after backing up & disable/re-enable camera App

    4. Try the same under safe mode:

    Hold the power button for 5 seconds => When the screen flashes with option => Press & hold power option => You will get an option to restart in safe mode

    # How to enter and exit "Safe Mode"

    5. If still you face the issue factory reset your phone after taking a full backup:

    6. Last option would be to visit the service center to have

    a check. Locate here:

    It's a very strange defect . Depth effect makes rear camera hang but works fine for front camera ..

    What would be the approx cost to repair the wide angle sensor & related hardware in India ? It looks like my wide angle cam hardware has gone defective

  • Unfortunatly you will need to replace your whole camera module. You cannot just replace wide angle lense. You can check new updated pricing from Asus for spare parts of Zenfone 5z.👇👇

    Camera module will cost you around 4882 rs without service charge & GST.

    I hope this helps you.
