Phone camera will not work

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

The camera on my phone will not work. It keeps freezing on me when I go to use it. I've tried deleting some pictures and also deleting apps but I can't seem to get it to work. I have a Galaxy S4. Suggestions or advice to troubleshoot this problem? I really would like to have a functional camera on my phone but I have no idea what could be causing this or what I could do to fix it?
