    Check your app permissions on your phone

    One clarification:  The phone has been receiving photos for as long as I've owned it. It stopped suddenly after May 28.

     

    After re-adding the camera, I received two photos.  I was also able to view settings without the "Error inquire settings" message.

    This morning, that's not the case.

    I checked my app permissions and found that "camera" and "storage" were allowed. 

    I had enabled "camera" to capture the imei.

    The disallowed items were "contacts" and "phone"

    Enabling all options did not change anything.

    Do you have other suggestions?  I see that others are inquiring about something similar, but I had more detail to add and didn't want to bury it in a comment.

    another addition:  When I try to retrieve settings after getting the error trying to view them, I get the following message: "Sorry, the program is out of order"

    also, when I try to retrieve a status report, I get an error: CameraAction:906 - Access Denied

    Go into your phone settings and find the app, do a force stop and clear the cache and see if that helps. You may have to clear data as well. If that doesn't do it try logging out and back in and maybe restart the phone.

    Clearing the cache didn't help.

    I opened the app and tried to log out.  It is unclear if I was actually logged out because nothing changed.

    I decided to start from scratch.

    I force quit the app.

    I deleted cache and data.

    I uninstalled the app.

    I reinstalled the app.

    I opened the app and it has an entry under "my cameras."  

    All other behaviors, except that the two photos are gone, are the same.

    I did not see an option to log in or reconnect to my camera.

    Did some data not get deleted or what am I missing?

    When I go to the "account" menu, it shows my email without my having to enter it.  

    Is it just retrieving it from Google?

    clear data

    uninstall app

    reinstall app

    clear cache

    That seems to have worked.  That's also what I thought about the thing I did last night, so I'll see if I get pictures going forward.

    Thanks for the help.
