When I switch the camera on, I only see onscreen buttons and the rest of the screen is black. I have the same problem with front and rear camera.
I have the newest fw version,
Can you help me with it?

Go to Settings, Apps, go to "All." Look for and select "Camera" in the list and select "Clear Data". Try to turn the camera on again and see if it functions properly.
If the problem persists, you can do a repair of the phone software using the Sony PC companion:
Click on this link to get Sony PC companion:
Start PC companion, start "Support Zone", start "Update phone software" and click on "Repair".
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Let me know if you are still having this issue.

The problem returned.
At first "Clear Data" had helped.
But now, I've cleared data, then updated software, but it didn't help now, and I again have black screen...
