    Getting various camera errors and camera isn't working- Surface Pro


    My camera stopped working abruptly and I've tried various things to address it, most recently a reset of Windows. That did nothing. However, it did change the error message. Now it's 0xA00F4244<nocamerasareattached>. Before it was something else that I neglected to write down. Any help would be appreciated.I've also tried updating the drivers pre and post the reset and it says the most updated drivers are already installed.

    :)
     

  2. Change the camera that the Windows 10 camera app uses.

    Unintuitively, the icon in the upper left that looks like it's meant to switch between your front and back camera will also cycle through your other attached cameras. At least, this worked for me on a Surface Pro 4 (front and rear camera) with a USB Microsoft LifeCam attached. The Camera application's version is listed as 2018.227.30.1000.

    Surface Pro 4 camera not working after latest Microsft update

    Performed most of the above steps with the same outcome. Upon restart I get "Could not turn on the camera. Please sign on with PIN."

    Thank you
