A. Stevens :

Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!

A. Stevens :

Peter - I think the best thing to try would be a factory reset of your phone.

A. Stevens :

Settings > Back up and reset > Factory data reset > Reset device > Erase everything

A. Stevens :

Be sure that you have backed up your data..

A. Stevens :

As this would delete everything from your phone.

A. Stevens :

That should restore your camera app.

Customer:

i had the same problem with the note 2 n7100

Customer:

is it a known problem with the note 2

A. Stevens :

Yes, I've seen this issue among several Galaxy/Android devices.

Customer:

with the old note i installed another camera app and it was fine what is the best fast camera app ?

A. Stevens :

Have you used the Google Camera app?

Customer:

no

A. Stevens :

I've had good experience with it.

A. Stevens :

I sent the link to it above here ^^

Customer:

its annoying because i have lost a load of pics i took with the origonal camera

A. Stevens :

Are you able to access your gallery still?>

Customer:

is there any way to retreve them

A. Stevens :

I think you would be able to move it over to the new app

A. Stevens :

If you can't open the gallery up on your phone

A. Stevens :

You could try connecting it to your computer

A. Stevens :

To try to sync the images over.

Customer:

with what?

A. Stevens :

When you connect to your computer with a USB cable

A. Stevens :

it should give you an option to import photos/videos

Customer:

nope

Customer:

any ideas

Customer:

what can i do

A. Stevens :

Have you tried connecting with USB cable already?

Customer:

yes

A. Stevens :

If you open "Devices and Printers" on your comptuer, do you see if you phone recognised there?

Customer:

yes

A. Stevens :

If you right click on it

A. Stevens :

Does it give you some options?

Customer:

Its down as the GT-N7105

Customer:

no options

A. Stevens :

Seems maybe the driver didn't install correctly

A. Stevens :

Can you try to unplug it and plug it back in?

A. Stevens :

If that doesn't work may need to download Samsung software to get it to recognize

Customer:

same thing it appears in devices and Printers

A. Stevens :

Download Kies

A. Stevens :

And then run the software after it installs

A. Stevens :

to see if it then will recognize your hone

A. Stevens :

phone*

Customer:

doing it now

Customer:

it downloaded and installed but theres update so its updating finished now

A. Stevens :

OK no problem

Customer:

ya it found it

A. Stevens :

great, so there should be some options there to sync photos

Customer:

it seems to be trying to sync it

A. Stevens :

Great

Customer:

it seems to be searching the whole phone and memory card

Customer:

no the pics i took today arent there

A. Stevens :

It does display some photos?

A. Stevens :

But just not some that you are looking for?

Customer:

yes

A. Stevens :

Hmm..seems that the photos in question did not get saved on your phone.

Customer:

ya thats the problem

A. Stevens :

If Kies cannot find the photos..they aren't recoverable

A. Stevens :

Sorry to tell you that

Customer:
