    My Smartphone flashlight works only when I plug it in to charge. or when I want to use the camera app to click a photo. I’ve rebooted, tried safe mode, reset the settings in General management, but to no avail

  3. Eiapopeia says:

    Deleting the camera app settings surprisingly fixed the problem for me. Before flashligt worked but the icon for camera flash was grayed out in the camera app.

    Thanks a lot!

    Installing a 3rd party flashlight app fixed both the camera app and the built-in flashlight on my LG Stylo 4. That is some weird s**t.

    On a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, after the last update to Kernel version 4.19.113-23204498, the flashlight stopped working. Any flashlight won’t work. It’ll come on for a second, then off. Interestingly, one flashlight with multiple settings for a blinking time WILL work, but a constant on will not. That’s the rub…. clearing data/cache, etc. won’t fix this. Everything else seems to be working ok after this update on 21 Dec 2021.

      I have hte same problem. on for 1 second then off even though display says its on. 4 different apps.

  18. Jeff Warila says:

    I typed an entire explanation of my difficulty with my flashlight and my comments keep deleting themselves?

    My flashlight doesn’t work either and I can only attribute this to demonic interference as I have had issues with my phone being possessed in the past

  19. Jordan says:

    I tried everything to reset my. Flashlight and nothing is working the only thing i am not do is manual factory reset the phone is saying that i got to contact the organization administrator

    Tried everything but still not working

  21. Alf says:

    Going off the report of it working only when charging, I tried opening my camera app with it sitting on an inductive charger, and the camera worked. The flashlight worked also. But when I picked it up, the camera and flashlight kept working. I’m pretty sure if I reboot it, it will fail again but I bet opening it again while charging will at least temporarily fix it. I think the fingerprint scanner might be loose or dead, but everything else works.
