Viet - Mac Tech :

Hi, I will assist,

Viet - Mac Tech :

I'm sorry about the issue you are having.

Viet - Mac Tech :

- Can you go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions, and turn off restrictions there, and/or turn off the camera restriction there.

Customer :

Hi,

Viet - Mac Tech :

Hi, please try my suggestion above. Thank you,

Customer :

I am in the restrictions area and it looks as if I need to enable restrictions to turn the camera restriction off. Is that correct? If so, it appears that I need a pass code to do so. Is that something I have or that I get from you?

Viet - Mac Tech :

Yes, try any passcode you want and remember it

Viet - Mac Tech :

(or if you already have a password code for your iphone, enter it.)

Customer :

ok. Camera restriction is now turned off.

Viet - Mac Tech :

Do you see the camera app now? Check all the screens

Viet - Mac Tech :

Swipe back and forth between Home screens to check for the camera app

Customer :

I do not see the camera ap on any of the screens

Viet - Mac Tech :

Sorry. Please press and hold both the Power button and the Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears, then wait a bit, then check.

Viet - Mac Tech :

Customer :

checking

Viet - Mac Tech :

ok

Customer :

The apple logo just left and it is asking me for a passcode. I entered the one I just put in and it won't take it.???

Viet - Mac Tech :

That's strange. Enter all passcodes you know/remember

Customer :

ok I'm back in and still no camera ap

Viet - Mac Tech :

Sorry. Can you go to Settings, general, reset, then reset home screen layout. then check?

Customer :

Just did that and still no camera ap.

Viet - Mac Tech :

Did you make any change to your iPhone to day that might have caused the issue?

Customer :

I don't know. I just remember looking at my screen earlier, not really reading it and pressing the home button. When I got back to that my camera ap was missing.

Viet - Mac Tech :

Is your iPhone software updated?

Customer :

yes

Viet - Mac Tech :

Please check anyway: Settings > General > Software Update.

Customer :

yes it is up to date

Viet - Mac Tech :

Is your iPhone backed up? If yes, an you try to reset settings at Settings > General > Reset?

Viet - Mac Tech :

reset all settings

Customer :

no I haven't backed it up for a long time unless it did it on its own.

Customer :

If I re set settings will that mess anything up or delete anything?

Viet - Mac Tech :

Do you have iCloud enabled?

Customer :

I should. How do I check?

Viet - Mac Tech :

Go to Settings > iCloud > Backup & Storage, and check

Customer :

Thats what I thought. I do have iCloud backup on.

Viet - Mac Tech :

wait, can you try this better camera app called Camera+
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id329670577?mt=8

Viet - Mac Tech :

search for Camera+ in the App Store

Viet - Mac Tech :

wait

Viet - Mac Tech :

Try this free one

Viet - Mac Tech :

Camera Awesome

Customer :

I could try that, but I really just want my camera.

Viet - Mac Tech :

we can try to reset/restore your iphone, but that takes time; try the camera awesome app, it's pretty the same

Viet - Mac Tech :

Also, did you configure/set up any email/Exchange Server recently?

Customer :

I think we're getting no where here. I'm going to try elsewhere and would appreciate no charge on this as it did not work.

Viet - Mac Tech :

I'm sorry, I tried most of the possible fixes, but not all. Don't worry, I will continue to work with you; we guarantee our service. Did you configure/set up any email/Exchange Server recently? Also, since you have backup, we can try to reset/restore the iPhone and check.

Customer :

Sorry but I am done here.

Viet - Mac Tech :

I'm sorry. 99% the issue is the restrictions settings, but it did not work in your case; some issues take longer to troubleshoot than others. I am canceling this, but if you still need help later, please let me know any time; we guarantee our service. Thank you,

Viet - Mac Tech :

Just to assure you, I am canceling this as you wish. If you still need help later, please let me know any time. Thank you,

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
