Why Is My Instagram Camera Not Working:

If the video call is not working then either there is an issue with the camera or the issue with Instagram itself. Either the server is malfunctioning or your settings just played the wrong role.

1. Instagram Camera Won’t Flip

Instagram doesn’t have a camera on its own, it just uses the camera in the phone. All we have to do is change the settings so that Instagram can access the phone camera.

Before giving access, make sure that your camera is working properly.

2. Changed Factory settings wrongly

If everything falls correctly into place, then the only option is to check the factory settings.

Many junk files might be causing some problems with your camera so it is always advisable to keep a backup before doing a factory reset.

Just choose ‘system’ in settings and do the reset by tapping on erase all.
