Hi Mariia,

I\'m Not that up on Android phones so is it a Widget or an App? I\'m guessing that it\'s a 3rd party App or Widget because from experience one cannot simply uninstall SWare (App/Program) if part of Android OS be it Kit Kat etc

Was/Is it easily accessible from screen or when using Camera also do you get any error messages.

I know this sounds like a stupid Q but have you re-started your LG after installing Flashlight.

A little bit more info and I\'m sure I can get youasoulution if you already haven\'t got it corrected.

Best of Luck

If the phone is getting restarted then you will have to reload the OS of your phone. You can download the phone OS from : select your carrier and the desired OS for your phone as you wish. then download the application loaded which helps you to install the OS to the phone from your PC. We call it as BBSAK (BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife). You can get the loader at : Once you are done downloading the both. Install the BBSAK and the Phone OS to the computer first where you downloaded from the blackerrry site. Connect your phone to the PC via the Data cable and wait a few seconds. Now open the BBSAK software and click CONNECT. As soon as you do it your phone's IMEI number will be displayed there. So now click Wipe device and press o for any upcoming messages. Now look at your phone, you will see a message saying that the phone is getting wiped (Resetting). Wait a few minutes and once the wipe it done Click on LOAD OS on the BBSAK software and then you will get a menu to select the Blackberry OS that you have installed in the PC (Remember i said that you need the Blackberry OS to the PC first). So now select the OS and then click Next and the rest is just a few steps left with some more Next clicks. I hope you are now done with the New OS installed to your phone

When open my mobile there writes screen red colors contact service

This is a fatal error which means that there's internal problem with your phone and needs to contact service for repair. In most cases, it's Software problem, Flashing (re-installing the operating system) the handset will fix it, but if in case it's related to hardware issue eg. CPU Failure, it's not worth getting it repaired. And I don't think it can be repaired either.
First, visit a Service Center and get their help. Flashing is also done at Service Centers or at Local Mobile Repair shops. They will also check the hardware if flashing doesn't help.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My blackberry bold won't turn on and the red light flashes 4 times and pauses

If possible try another battery, a local carrier can probably swap one out to try,
if it is not a battery issue it is an OS issue and you need to wipe and install a new OS.

You will need to use Desktop manager or BBSAK

Blackberry 8830 will not power up; 4 red flashes

I was experiencing the same issue with my 8830. After I attempted to install updates through the blackberry site, it rebooted and would not boot up. I went back to the blackberry site: I downloaded the latest from my carrier and I installed it using the exe that I got from my vendor. The whole process took 45 mins but I have a working BB again.
