    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 in Canada - Flashlights now blinks when alarm is going off. 4.3

    So I just updated to 4.3 and when my alarm went off yesterday morning the flashlight started blinking too. I can't find for the life of me where to turn that off. Thanks

    It's at the bottom of the list in Settings -> My device -> Accessibility
    I don't know the name of the actual item (I don't have 4.3; just seen this mentioned) but apparently you have to check and then uncheck the item and the problem will go away.

    I went into Settings and under My Device went to Accessibility the Flash notification was not on, however, I turned it on and turned it off and it seemed to have worked. My light would flash when my alarm went off and when I received incoming calls. I just did a test of incoming calls and it no longer flashes. Seems to have worked - good luck everyone!! (I have the Samsung Galaxy S3.

    my flashlight was blinking with incoming calls. Did what you said and voila! Now it doesn't! Thank you! My battery seems to drain really fast since update. Anyone else with this issue?

    Oh my god thank you. What a STUPID feature to enable by default. My wife AND my newborn son are happy it can be turned off. It's like they purposely hid that in a really random place. Erg......

    OMG, thank you all! This has been driving me insane! It doesn't help to have a phone on silence and then to have it flash and interrupt class and work!!
