Camera goes blank after lollipop 5.1.1 update.

After saving any video the camera app goes blank, it won't work unless you restart the device. Similarly after taking a picture when you preview it by clicking the gallery shortcut in camera. Then when you switch back to camera again it goes blank. Any one facing similar issue? Kindly do help me.

Try clearing cache of camera app:
- Go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Camera -> Clear data and restart your phone.


Clearing the cache and data then reboot is only a temporary fix

Problem will reoccur as soon as you take multiple photos.

 

I found that Turn off "Use AwesomePlayer" seeting in developer settings fixed the issue
