Camera says file system error

Hi! @Char2018, Welcome to HP forums.

 

I understand when you open the camera app you are getting file system error on the PC.

 

Don't worry I'll try to help you out.

 

Did you make any software or hardware changes on your PC?

 

Is this a school-managed Chromebook? If so, a policy restriction might be in place.

 

Excellent description and a great diagnosis done. It is greatly appreciated.

 

Try updating the chromebook to the latest version and check if it helps.

 

Try resetting the chromebook to factory settings following the steps recommended below.

 

Try the steps recommended below.

 

Sign out of your Chromebook.
Press and hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift + r.
Click Restart.
In the box that appears, click Reset and sign in with your Google Account.
Note: The account you sign in with after you reset your Chromebook will be the owner account.
Follow the steps that appear.
Once you've reset your Chromebook:
Set up your Chromebook again
Check if the problem is fixed

 

Refer this article to further troubleshoot resetting chromebook. Click Here

 

 

Let me know if this helps!

Have a great day ahead! 🙂

Hiya 

 

i did everything as requested, I ended up having to take mine back to place I got it and got a replacement and so far this one is working fine. 

 

Apparently there was a issue issue with the update that was installed. 

 

Hope this helps
