Xperia M camera flash not working

Hello hope someone can help me.

I have an Xperia M and my camera Led flash some doesn't work at all both using the camera or a flashlight app.

 

Some days ago I needed to use the flashlight (with a third party app) but battery life was very short, after some minutes device went off but flashlight remained on.

 

Since then the LED Flash doesn't work at all.

 

I've already restarted the device and cleared all datas from settings-> apps -> camera.

 

someone has any tip or hint in order to resolve?

 

Thanks 

 

Cristian

Hi, 

 

Before taking the phone to a service center you could try to repair the phone software using PC Companion:

In PC Companion, press start on Support Zone > Start on Update the phones software > Press the blue link that says "Repair phone". Follow the instructions in the program.

Re: Xperia M camera flash not working

Remove all third party Apps associated with the flash light and then switch off your phone. Remove the battery, keep the battery removed and have a cup of coffee and after that put the battery back and switch On your phone and check your flash will be working. Hope this will help in your case...
