Web Camera Error Code 0xa00f4271 Solved!

Hi, error code 0xa00f4271 has widely been reported since 2016, and this issue is mainly happening on the built-in camera rather than the external camera being used. People who have reported this bug have specifically said that when they use an external camera, they are not experiencing any issue. However, when the built-in camera is put to use, the error appears.

Solution 1:

For some people, the issue got resolved when they disabled their anti-virus for some time. Also, you must try updating your camera drivers to the latest version. To update your camera driver do this:

  • Enter Device Manager by right-clicking on Windows key.
  • You will see an option as “Imaging devices.” Look for webcam under that. If you cannot see it there, you must search for it under “Sound, video and game controllers.”
  • Right-click on your Webcam and click on Update driver.
  • After the update gets completed, close all open windows and reboot your system.

Solution 2:

If the above fix did not work for you, you must try this out:

  • Go to your Settings app by pressing the Windows logo key, and I key together.
  • Navigate to App and Features and find Camera in the options.
  • Below Camera, you will see an “Advanced Options” link.
  • Press the Reset button, and wait until the process ends.
  • After the end of the process, reboot your system.

Solution 3:

You must check which camera version is installed to your computer. Sometimes, old versions are not compatible with Windows 7 and higher versions. To do so,

  • Go to Device Manager.
  • You will see an option as “Imaging devices.” Look for webcam under that. If you cannot see it there, you must search for it under “Sound, video and game controllers.
  • When you locate your Webcam, right-click and select Properties.
  • Click on Driver to check your Driver details.
  • If you can see a file named stream.sys, then it means your camera is compatible with Windows 7 and above. If that file is absent, then you must replace your camera.
