Question about Nokia 6255i

Camera flash/phone powering off

I've recently had a problem with first my phone just powering off on it's own. Then, the camera flash came on and won't go off unless I use the camera flash to take a photo and then go in on options and turn off the flash. But when I turn off the phone and then turn it back on, the flash comes on and stays on. I'm the second owner, but my son who gave it to me never had these problems. I don't recall dropping the phone. Since it's an old model, could it just be wearing out? I've ordered a new phone, but I was just curious about what you think? Thanks!

Re: camera flash/phone powering off

I have actually had a couple of these phones come in w/ similar problems. There is a secondary circuit board in the upper assembly that needs to be replaced. Or the phone possibly got wet. As far as powering off, the battery has either went bad or once again may have moisture damage.

GPS not run

The cause can lay in the improper modem settings for your device. If you've flashed EEPROM recently with the custom settings then roll it back. If not and that happened suddenly have your phone serviced.

Are you saving your pictures to the phone's built in memory or to the removable flash card?

I would recommend shutting your phone off (hold the power button down for 7 seconds), reseating your flash card, then powering it back up.

Camera light stays on samsung g600. tried everything, settings, left battery out. helpppp

I recently had this problem too. It started when i first tried the flash settings on the camera. I woke up the next day, turned my phone on and the light wouldn't turn off.

I discovered that by cycling through each flash option (always on, auto and always off) and taking a photo on each setting would sometimes turn the light off for a few moments before the phone crashed and had to be restarted.

Whilst showing this to a friend last night somehow the light went off and the phone didn't freeze (this might be because i had reset the phone to it's factory settings earlier in the day). The light is now off permanently, although i'm hesitant to use the flash again for fear of causing the whole problem again!
