    HDR+ on the N5 must take three pictures. One under exposed, one exposed correctly and one over exposed to combine them together so that it can make one picture that is closes to what your eye can see. The human eye is better than camera. Flash would prevent HDR+ from working.

    Hi , Issue has been resolved. For your information , my flash was not working even when HDR+ mode was off . So i restarted the phone but it still didnot worked then i restarted the phone with pressing power button and volume key down together , then after restarting , flash started working again .

    I'm having the same issue with flash being disabled. (See screen shot) Rebooting hasn't helped and rebooting into recovery and then selecting "Start" didn't do it either. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    You have a scene enabled which perhaps turns the flash off.

    Knowing what settings are set can get confusing. especially if something isn't working and you need to reset whatever you set to get a particular feature working again. If all else fails, clearing data of the camera app within settings > apps > camera should fix any issues.
