How to fix camera failed error on Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016)?

I got this phone two months ago, and the first time I charged it and tried to use camera afterwards, it said Error: Camera failed. I tried reseting my phone to factory settings, it didn't help, just as, restarting it didn't help. Then I turned it off, and took out the battery, then put it back in, after which the camera worked fine. And every time after that camera stopped working only after I plugged the charger out. If I take out the battery, the camera will work fine, even while it's plugged in and charging, but as soon as I take the charger out, the error occurs again. What could be the problem and how do I fix it?

That's odd. I highly suggest that you have your phone checked cause your phone looks like it needs some repair.
