    Default Camera Flash Randomly Not Working

    Just noticed that my camera flash just randomly stopped working. Anyone else getting this?

    My flashlight app does not work either but for some reason the flash in instagram works......

    Default Re: Camera Flash Randomly Not Working

    After a restart the flash still did not work, however it did work on my flashlight widget.

    Even though no one encountered this problem, I thought I'd leave the solution that worked for me in case any people are Googling to get here:

    The support tech had me reset the phone by taking the battery out. That did not work.

    Then they had me go to Settings, Apps, All Apps, Camera.

    In the camera app section, press "Clear Data".

    This fixed it.

    This also worked for me but not until I cleared the camera data, removed the battery & then rebooted. But that was the solution
