How to Reset Camera Settings Samsung Galaxy S23

Is your Galaxy S23 camera quite erratic or not working as intended? It might be due to some random system glitches, if not a messed up app setting. Should this be the case, restoring the camera app’s default configuration can help. In this tutorial, we will walk you through restoring the Samsung Galaxy S23 camera app back to its factory state. Read on for more detailed instructions.

Resetting the camera app settings on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone can be carried out in various methods. You can reset camera settings straight from the app, through settings or using the OneUI reset all settings option.

1. Resetting  Camera Settings on Galaxy S23 via Settings menu

The widely used method to reset the inbuilt Samsung camera is through the Settings menu. And here’s how it’s done:

Step 1: To get started, open the Settings app by tapping on the Settings/Gear icon from the Home/Apps screen. 

Alternatively, you can launch the quick settings/notification panel then tap on the Settings app shortcut represented by the same gear icon. Either way will take you to the same settings menu of your device.

Step 2: In the Settings menu, scroll to find and then tap Apps. 

Doing so will launch another window with a list of all preloaded and downloaded applications.

Step 3: Scroll to find Camera from the given apps and then tap on it to proceed. 

Alternatively, you can use the quick search function in the Apps menu to save time from scrolling. Simply tap on the search icon (magnifying glass) located in the upper-rightmost corner of the Apps screen then type Camera in the provided text field. Tap Camera from the search result and wait for the next window to load up.

Step 4: In the Camera App info screen, tap Camera settings. 

Doing so will take you to the Samsung camera app’s settings menu.

Step 5: Scroll down to the bottom section and then tap Reset settings under the Privacy section. 

A pop-up window will launch with a quick question.

Step 6: To confirm action and instigate an app reset for the Samsung Camera, tap Reset on the pop-up window. 

All recent custom settings you’ve made to the camera app will then be deleted and the app is restored back to its factory state. 

The next time you launch the app, it will load up like the first time you use it on your phone. By then, you can reconfigure individual settings and options according to your preferences.

2. Resetting  Camera Settings on Galaxy S23 through the Camera app itself

The Samsung Camera app settings menu can also be accessed and managed through the application itself. Here’s how it’s done on the Galaxy S23:

Step 1: To begin, open the Camera app. 

Just look for the stock Camera icon from the Home screen or Apps tray and then tap on it to launch the app.

Step 2: In the Camera app’s main screen, tap on the gear icon located in the upper-left corner. 

Doing so will take you straight to the Camera settings menu where you can manage any of the inbuilt options and features.

Step 3: Scroll down to the bottom section and then tap Reset settings then confirm action by tapping Reset on the pop-up window.

The camera app will then reset and then return to its factory state.

3. Resetting  Camera Settings on Galaxy S23 via Reset all settings

If your Galaxy S23 camera app suddenly stops working properly after installing an app, a new update or altering settings, there’s a good chance that the recent changes have ruined the application. To fix the problem, restoring all default settings can be the ultimate solution. So here’s what you should do then:

Step 1: Launch the Settings app by tapping on the gear icon from the Home screen or Apps tray. You can also launch the Settings app via quick settings/notification panel.

Step 2: In the Settings menu, scroll to find and then tap General management. Another set of options and features will load up next.

Step 3: Scroll to find Reset on the succeeding window and then tap on it to continue. 

A list of all system reset options will be displayed.

Step 4: Select Reset all settings from the given options. 

More details about the selected reset will be displayed.

Step 5: Read the reset details then tap Reset to proceed. 

If prompted, enter your device’s security PIN, pattern or password and then tap the next option to confirm action.

The phone will then instigate system settings reset without deleting user data from the internal storage.

After the reset, you will notice that built-in apps and services on your phone are restored back to their factory state. The default settings are already reinstated so you’ll need to re-enable necessary features that are disabled by default including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.

As soon as you get everything set, launch the camera app and you should see that everything in the app is back to its original state.

4. Resetting  Camera Settings on Galaxy S23 by Clearing Cache/Data

Another way to restore defaults for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Camera app is by clearing the app’s cache and data. Here’s how:

Step 1: Launch the Settings app to begin. 

Simply tap the gear icon from the Home screen/ Apps tray or quick settings panel.

Step 2: Next, scroll to find and then tap Apps from the Settings menu. 

Doing so will take you to the Apps window with all built-in and downloaded apps.

Step 3: Scroll to find and then tap Camera from the list of apps.

Alternatively, you can search the Camera app using the embedded search tool in the Apps menu.

Step 4: On the succeeding window (App info screen), scroll towards the Usage section and then tap Storage. 

The camera app’s storage menu will load up next.

Step 5: At the bottom of the screen are the commands to clear cache and clear data for the Samsung Camera app. 

Tap Clear cache to delete all temporary files stored in the camera app’s cache partition. 

Step 6: To permanently delete all of the app’s data, tap Clear Data then tap Delete on the pop-up window to confirm.

This will reset all the camera settings to their default values, including any custom settings or preferences you may have set. 

After the reset, you will need to reconfigure your camera settings, such as shooting mode, picture size, and other options afterwards.

Aside from restoring the camera app to its original state, performing this reset can also help fix any transpiring issues you were experiencing with the Samsung camera such as random crashes, lags, freezes and other relevant problems.

Hope this helps!
