    Grr the flash light on my 8120 won't turn off - nothing to do with the camera. Even when I put the phine into standby it still doesn't turn off??

    Any suggests?

    When in doubt, whip it out!! (Do a battery pull)

    Let us know if that helps.

    Yep tried that - another reason why I know its not camera settings as as soon as I put the battery back it the light comes on?

    Bloody battery draining.

    Hm. I have an 8310, which doesn't have the flashlight, so I'm not of much help, other than perhaps reinstalling your OS and see if that doesn't clear it up. I know....it sounds like a pretty drastic measure, but it's really pretty simple to do.

    Here's a thread with instructions on how to reinstall your OS. You might even take this opportunity to upgrade to the latest OS if you don't already have it on your device:

    lol - i actually used a nail and a hammer and smashed the flash - ok so the flash no longer works but who cares.

    extreme measures and all.

    Did you guys check out your video camera settings? Not just regular camera but video?
