    A couple of weeks ago the rear camera on my beloved Z30 just flat out died. The app will open but I get an error saying flash mode failed and it just stays grey. I flip over to front camera and it has a green tent that keeps flashing on and off. It wont take pictures period. I tried reboots and even a wipe and restore but nada. Took it to Verizon and they were clueless. Ended up getting a new Sony Z3 as daily driver but still keep Z30 charged and connected to wi-fi cause I just cant let go. Any help with this would be great.
