Selfie and card picture for verifying card not working (just shows black)

I’m trying to verify my physical debit card, however when I try to take the selfie photo and photo of my bank card for this, the app ‘allows’ me to take the photo, but the result is just a black image.

I have:
Ensured I am in a well lit room with a blank background
Removed anythign that might interfere with the image e.g. my glasses
Ensured my app is up to date
Ensured the app has access and permission to my camera
Tried this on seperate devices and had the same outcome

There is no option to upload a photo via extrenal means

Please can someone advise on how to resolve this issue. I am due to travel out of the country in 12 days and need this working in time.

also I suggest use original device ROM (sometimes I read in other forums issues with banks and devices, because the ROM is customized). Use the original camera of device, No an app downloaded from any site, Play Store, like famous GCAM).


That’s a great advice indeed @valtf!
