HTC EVO 4G :: Camera Flash Not Working

Aug 27, 2010

My Flash on the camera has stopped working all of a sudden. I checked the camcorder and the light (flash on) didn't work. I tapped the back of the phone near the flash. It worked. I went back to camera and turned on flash, it worked. So by tapping something I jigged something around in there and the flash was working.

HTC Desire :: Camera Flash Not Working

Jul 8, 2010

Bought a HTC Desire and just cannot get its camera flash working. Obviously having hard time with people at the shop ("have you tried taking these pictures at night, maybe it understands that it is still daytime even if you tried it in bathroom"). My dumb brain would suggest that manual - flash always on (unless that 5% battery limit is not hit), automatic - depends on sensor income, off - no flash. Really hard to search for stuff like that in forums as usually "flash not working" refers to Adobe Flash.

Samsung Moment :: Camera Flash Not Working

Jan 27, 2010

I noticed at some point after the upgrade to CL14 (done via sprint) that my flash on the camera isn't working. This could have been happening before the upgrade but i doubt it.

Anyways so the camera doesn't light up the flash. I saw it light up the flash once since I started troubleshooting but thats about it. I switched back and forth between flash on/off a dozen times or so.

Downloaded momentflash. Low and behold i started the app and it worked! Then i tried turning the flash on again and no luck. So i uninstalled, rebooted phone over and over again, no luck. I then did some reading and realized there was a widget. Put that on the desktop and again the FIRST time i ran the widget the flash worked. then it stopped again. I haven't been able to light it up since then.

I haven't been able to do much troubleshooting when it does work, but it doesn't seem hardware related. it stays on until i hit off, but i didn't get a chance to wiggle it around to see if contacts needed cleaing, etc...

Just wondering if anyone had any ideas? I don't think its any apps i have installed as i have pretty standard ones and had those on when it was working ( i believe at least).

i also tried killing all my running apps to see if any were causing conflict, then restarting momentflash and it still wouldn't light it up...

any help would be great, I don't really know what else to try. Looked at the android logs and nothing jumped out as having an issue.

I could probably try hard resetting but don't want to restore the phone again if i don't have to.

HTC EVO 4G :: New Or Refurb - Camera Flash / Flashlight Stopped Working

Nov 29, 2010

A few weeks ago, my camera flash/flashlight stopped working. I didn't know the cause. Occassionally, I noticed the flash would come on very dull before going out again. Then it stopped working completely. Although I was unable to find a thread suggesting that anyone else was having this problem, I figured that my bulbs must have died. I kept meaning to go get it checked out at a Sprint store, but I just wasn't making time to go. Last week, one of the corners on my PhantomSkinz cover got beat up a little bit. I have another set here ready to go (matte instead of the clear), and I was going to put the new skin on, but I decided I should go to the Sprint store to have my flash looked at first just in case they were going to replace my device. So I went this morning.

I waited for about two hours while a tech worked on my phone. I kept being reassured that it would be done soon, so I kept waiting around. When the CS rep brought me my phone, she said that they had been unable to fix the flash. They had replaced the bulbs without success, so they replaced the entire camera and still had no success. Then they did a wipe of my phone, and still the flash wouldn't work. Replacement device should be here tomorrow..............

Hey there! I've been looking but with no success so far. Does anyone know if there is an app for the Eve to turn the camera's led flash into a torch? I've found a few that use the LCD light, but that's not intense enough... And all the apps I found so far that use the led flash light, do not work on the Eve.

HTC Desire :: Froyo Camera With Disabled Flash

Aug 5, 2010

I was certain I'd seen another post on this, but can't find it. Since Froyo, my camera doesn't work with flash. Even at 90% battery I get this message: Flash is disabled due to low battery power, cold weather, or a running application that uses a lot of power, like Wi-Fi hot spot and phone. I haven't got a LED flash torch thing - I uninstalled that before updating to 2.2. Ideas?

Android :: Set Flash Mode Camera.parameters

Oct 7, 2010

I'm trying to use the camera in an Android app using the 1.5 API. I want the camera to flash for every picture. However, when I looked at the API for camera.parameters, the setFlashMode() method is only supported for 2.0 and higher. Yet my Cliq XT, which runs 1.5, has a flash that I can set in the menu - I take this to mean there is a way to do this for the 1.5 API, though I was unable to find it.Does anyone know how to set the flash mode using the 1.5 API?

Samsung Captivate :: USB Flashlight / Camera Flash Add-On

Oct 31, 2010

First, is there a good reason the captivate does not have a camera flash (aside from the devs thinking the night mode worked 'well enough')?
If not: I strongly suggest we get a huge number of people to say they would be interested in buying a flashlight/camera flash add-on for the phone were someone to develop one. After we get a big enough number, we'll kindly forward it to several companies. I took my phone out last night for halloween, and was quite disappointed with the night quality. I'm sure something like this would be profitable at ~$6, but I would pay $10-15 to cover research costs/etc.

Android :: Camera Flash In 1.5 And 1.6 - Application Crashes

May 21, 2010

My app is using the camera on the phone. For phones w/ 2.0+ I have been able to activate the Flash. When I test on a phone with 1.5 OS on it the app crashes. I get: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException and the Cause is java.lang.VerifyError: fishers.Nav.TakePicture$1
I assume because you have to access the flash differently in apps below 2.0? Can anyone give me some advice or links to examples showing how I could make it work over the whole range of Operating System version or is that just not at all do-able?

Android :: Application For Using Camera Flash For Notifications?

Apr 25, 2010

Being relatively new to my Droid, I'm still finding fun stuff. Recently, I picked up the shell/holster combo and really like it. However, while I am at work, I have my phone on vibrate (thanks Timeriffic) and can't tell who is texting/emailing me like I used to (different colors for the LED, thanks Handcent). What I was wondering is: is it possible to write an app that uses the camera flash like a vibrate function.

The ability to customize the number of flashes and duration would be cool, as would the ability to have it only flash when the phone is on vibrate or silent. Preferably, without having to root the phone. If its not possible due to hardware or software lockouts oh well.

HTC Incredible :: Possible To Adjust Camera Flash Intensity?

I'm not sure if this has been done on the other Android phones, but since people are mentioning the flash tends to be too strong at distances less than 4ft. Is there any way to turn the intensity down? I'm not sure if there's an app/hack for that or if it's simply not possible to control that within Android at all.
