    Run the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit

    In Device Manager, right-click on camera, and then select Properties.

    Select the Driver tab, then select Uninstall Device. Select the check box for Attempt to remove the driver for this device, then select OK.

    In Device Manager, on the Action menu, select Scan for hardware changes.

    Wait for it to scan and reinstall updated drivers, restart your PC, and then try opening the Camera app again.
