    I guess something is is making the phone believe the camera is in use. Did you try restarting?

    I have this problem too with my LG Stylo 2 Plus, it's running the same LG software I believe.

    How would the flash work if the flashlight is on?
    What you describe seems normal to me...
    By the way, my phone will not let the two apps work at the same time too. (Camera & flashlight).

    Do you mean like this? I just tried and knew it. Is it good or not? Or is it the default setting?

    Lateck,
    I'm thinking he means he's getting an error. That the camera is actually not in use. They have never come back to respond so we don't know.

    Correct the camera is not in use and I keep on getting this error on my LG G5.

    Have you tried it in safe mode to rule out a third party app? If it still does it in safe mode I would try doing a factory reset after backing up your data. I would start with a clean install....if that works then I would only add necessary apps to avoid adding any third party apps that may be causing the issue. If that doesn't work, I would assume your device might need repair.

    Thanks. Actually it does work for 5 seconds, than it turns off with a error message: "flashlight turned off due to flash- related app in use"

    I have had the exact same issue. First my phone/call and camera apps kept crashing and flash light wouldn't turn on. I tried safe mode which didn't work initially. So I turned off my phone and went to bed. Woke up this morning and everything is ok now except the flash. The error is exactly what you're experiencing. I put my phone to safe mode and the flash is working. So it's a third party app using the flash. Can't figure out which one though. Try switching to safe mode and see if yours works.

    Probably a rogue app using your camera without your permission. Could be a social media, messaging, photo editing app.. try looking through and see what apps have camera permissions. Download Greenify and hibernate all apps and then see if the problems are still there
