PiCam stream loading forever

Camera model
My camera model is Raspberry Pi Camera Rev 1.3, bought from AZ-Delivery on Amazon (https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B01M6UCEM5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1)

What is the problem?
I want to monitor my 3d printer from other rooms, as my 3d printer is in the attic. I set up OctoPi to check if it worked and everything went fine, so I decided to finally buy a PiCam. When it finally arrived I plugged it in, but the stream kept charging forever.

What did you already try to solve it?
I have tried installing OctoPi all over again (I'm currently trying for the second time). I also have read a lot in this forum and tried all sorts of different commands through SSH. I think that my PiCam isn´t broken, as I have achieved to see one frame of the camera upon reboot (let me explain myself, I tried the sudo service webcamd start command, but nothing happened. Then I tried rebooting the Pi another time, and to my surprise, I achieved to see one frame of the stream in the control tab.)
Here you can see a list of the multiple commands I tried with their respective answers:

As I wrote before, I have also tried the sudo service webcamd start command, wich seems to do nothing, but when you just reboot, one frame shows up, but then, obviously, the connection gets lost because of the reboot.

Logs (/var/log/webcamd.log, syslog, dmesg, ... no logs, no support)
The only log I could find is this one(for some reason my webcams log is blank):
octoprint.log (40.0 KB)

Additional information about your setup (OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, ...)
Camera type: Raspberry Pi Camera Rev 1.3 (link is given before)
Raspberry Pi type: Rasbperry Pi 3B+
OctoPrint version, OctoPi version: OctoPrint 1.4.0 running on OctoPi 0.17.0
3D Printer: Creality CR10
3D Printer Firmware: N/A

All the help is welcome and thanked
Thanks in advance😀

Please, could anyone answer me? At least to tell me to buy another PiCam, I really need this to be set up. Thanks in advance.
