what means INSTALLED CAMERA? you connected it to the board and enabled it in raspi-config?
or what software did you install for it? does that has its own webserver what conflicts now with the old one?

Crosschecked it by rebooting and checking the raspi-config
so when you have HDMI / keyboard / mouse,
and can login and start terminal
and do
sudo raspi-config
you can enable SSH and VNC from there!
