A British man attended a party after which his iPhone camera failed: how it happened

Lasers at a party ruined iPhone cameras/frimufilms

The camera on the iPhone 14 Pro was completely disabled after attending a DJ party where lasers were used.

A man from the United Kingdom told PetaPixel that he had already managed to shoot several videos overnight, but on the last video he noticed that the image began to break down into grain and colors.

At first I thought that it could just be a glitch in the camera app, so I restarted the app, but it didn't change anything,
he says.

He then downloaded an alternative camera app and tried restarting the phone, but nothing helped. He realized that it was definitely a camera problem caused by the lasers the DJ was using.

The damage proved irreparable and he has since purchased another iPhone and performed a hard reset on the broken iPhone 14 Pro.

I'm still waiting to hear back from the insurance company, unfortunately I can buy a used original camera module for around £50 sterling, but due to software blocking of Apple's hardware components, I've read that the phone will display a warning/error message,
he explains.

He currently has a fully functional iPhone 14 Pro, which he would have a hard time selling with a faulty camera. The man says that although he has received many comments about “how cool” the photos are, no one actually wants to buy them.

This is not the first time,

This is not the first time strong> when PetaPixel reports that a laser at a party breaks a camera sensor, it happened last year at a rap concert in Naples, Italy.

In 2021, Sony, which supplies camera sensors to Apple, officially posted a warning on its website that it knows lasers can cause damage to the image sensors in its cameras .

Do not expose the lens to direct rays such as laser beams. Doing so may damage the image sensor and cause the camera to malfunction,
says a warning issued in July 2021.

Note: In outdoor or indoor in an environment where there is a laser display, the possibility of direct or indirect (reflection of the laser beam from a reflective object) damage to the CMOS sensor of the camera is still very high.
