    Default Flashing Light

    After a recent update, the camera light flashes during incoming calls. Any way to stop it from flashing?

    It might be a setting. Try this.

    Settings/my device/accessibility/ deactivate flash notification

    That strobe feature is part of Samsung`s accessibility feature for hearing impaired. To turn it off:
    1. Open Settings.
    2. Select Accessibility.
    3. Scroll down and find Flash Notification under Hearing.
    4. Turn it off. Now strobe notification is turned off. (make sure its not checked)

    There is no such thing as a flash notification to turn off on my Galaxy S3 in Settings, Device, Accessibility. Now what?

    Depends on the firmware version you're running - it showed up in 4.3.

    I have 4.3. My page shows:

    HEARING
    Sound balance
    Mono audio
    Turn off all sounds
    MOBILITY
    Press and hold delay

    I took a screenshot but don't know how to put here!

    I wasn't aware that any carriers had removed that setting. If you're having that problem but there's no equivalent setting I'm not sure what to suggest. Factory Reset...
