    I have a Nexus 5 running stock 5.1.1, my flashlight from the drop down menu will not work and my camera will not work. It is the stock Google camera, when I try to open it it says it can't connect

    I would try a factory restore from settings - you can try downloading a third party camera from play store before doing so to check they don't work either.

    If other app doesn't work, and factory reset doesn't work, it could be hardware ..

    Looks like factory reset is best option. If it's not working after a factory reset - it's likely a hardware failure :( :(
