Camera not working, gray screen


My camera is not working.
In Settings, Allow Camera is ON.

The Drivers are updated.

The anti-virus doesn't seem to be a problem, when disabled the camera is still not working.

Any idea how I can solve this?

Windows 10 / EasyCamera

Okay, try to re-register Camera app:

1. Press Windows +X and select Windows PowerShell (Admin).

2. Type/paste following and press Enter key:

Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.WindowsCamera | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

3. Close Windows PowerShell and see if this resolves the issue.

Otherwise, try these steps:

1. Press Windows + X, select Device Manager.

2. Under Imaging devices, right click on your camera device and select Uninstall. Click OK.

3. Then click Action > Scan for hardware changes.

4. Close Device Manager and reboot.
