Re: Flashlight bug on Z5 Premium after MM update

Any progress on this issue at all? I've been waiting for a REAL fix for this the entire summer. I am tired of waiting and i am tired of having to use my camera blitz to stimulate the flash

Note: i have an Xperia z5 dual.
Flashlight doesn't work.
If i want it to work i have to take a photo with my flash on first and then the flash light will actually be responsive for a while. After that it will go back to beeing unresponsive.

Update on Xperia Z5 Dual issue.
I don't need to have the Flash on when taking a picture, the capture can be set without a flash. As long as i use the camera first, the flashlight will work after that.

There forums are useless if xperia is not providing any update. Maybe spam them on the Twitter page on these issues!!
I'll look for some fix on XDA

Re: Flashlight bug on Z5 Premium after MM update

Hi 

 

I appear to have the same issue on my Z5 Premium. The flashlight icon disappears from the Quick Settings randomly then after a restart of the phone it reappears.

 

This has only started happening for a about 2-3 months now.

 

Has Sony posted anything in regards to this issue??
