Is there a known issue between iOS 7.1 and iPad cameras?

    Inherited a barely used iPad 3. Set it up as new, latest software update.

    If I open the camera app, it's a black screen and the controls are unresponsive. If I hit the swap to front camera button, even though there is no response, but close then open the app, the front facing camera works as it should. If I try to swap it around, all I get is a blurred image in frozen screen. If I try to switch it back again to the forward facing camera: black screen and unresponsive controls.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    I have restarted, re-set up etc. Barely used but out of warranty.

    There is no known issue as you've described.

    You could try a hard reboot (hold down the home button and the on/off button simultaneously and keep them held down until the screen goes black), if you haven't tried that already.

    It may well be that the person you inherited from dropped it or otherwise damaged the camera control.
