    Camera Flash CONSTANTLY ON!!

    Advertisement



    Lately i have been expierencing the problem with my camera flash! At random times it will just turn the flash on (while not in camera mode) and it will stay on. I turned the camera on and then turned the setting for flash off and exited the camera and it still was on. I tryed turning the phone on and off many times and it still stays on even when the phone is off??????? Anyone have a clue?
    Thanks

    no idea... but i do know that there are a lot of people out there trying to figure out how to make their phone do what yours is doing... maybe you hold the secret key!

    Try taking the battery out to reset it. If that doesn't do it, I'd try an OS upgrade to wipe it.

    Yeah, that sounds like a real battery drainer, hope a wipe helps.

    Re: Camera Flash CONSTANTLY ON!!

    I was curious if you found a solution to this problem. I bought a new pearl 8100 off of ebay for my son, which he just got a couple of days ago. After the first day of using it, he started having the problem with the flash constantly being on. We have tried turning it off in options, doing a battery pull, etc. Is there anything else he can do, because it is killing his battery. He lives with his dad and I won't see him for two more weeks, so updating the OS is not an option for him before he comes to see me. Please let me know if there are any other solutions, or if I should contact the ebay seller and request a replacement.

    Thanks.

    Real quick question for both posters......Is the liquid damage indicator red? We have seen this before in our shop with other phones doing the same thing an 99% of the time it comes down to a short caused by some type of liquid corrosion.

    It is a small square somewhere on the side of the battery compartment in the back of the phone. It will either be white, pink, or red. If it is not white, then the phone has been introduced to some type of liquid exposure.

    Ugh, I had my son check and it is red. Guess I am going to contact the ebay store I got it from and request a refund or replacement. Thanks for the good advice, I really appreciate all the help I get here. You guys are the best.
