Clear Camera app data and cache

If the issue persists after you’ve updated the Camera app, try clearing the Camera app data and cache. Simply press and hold the Camera app icon and select App Information. Select Storage and clear app data and cache from there. Clearing the storage resets the camera settings. If the issue was related to the settings being altered, it will be fixed. Clearing the cache deletes any temporary files that may be corrupted, thereby preventing the camera app from working.

Remove camera permission from other apps

Sometimes certain apps that have access to your phone’s camera can malfunction and keep it from working. In this case, you need to remove camera permission from those apps and see if the issue is resolved. You can either remove camera permission from all apps at once or do it one by one to see which app is responsible for the malfunction. To remove camera access, go to Settings>Apps & Notifications. Click on Apps and then select Camera. This section will contain the list of all the apps that have access to the camera. Click on an app to remove its camera permission.

Clean your camera lens

Wipe the camera lens with a clean microfiber cloth. Make sure the lens isn’t obstructed by the phone cover or screen guard. Open the camera again and see if it’s working normally. 

Restore factory settings

This should be the last option you consider for fixing your OnePlus 8, 9, or 10’s camera. Restoring a phone to its factory settings clears it of all its data and resets all the system settings. Essentially, it restores your phone to the settings it was in when you took it out of the box. In order to perform factory settings reset go to Settings>System>Reset Options>Erase All Data>Factory Reset.
