KU990 Camera Flash Not Working

Well recently my camera's flash unexpectedly stopped working, its definitely set on auto & I'm taking shots in the dark yet the flash has ceased operation..

Phone is in pristine condition and never has been dropped...

My GF has the same phone and had a similar problem where it would flash when it wanted to but has recently fixed itself....
Please Help...

Any one had a similar experience??

    I have just received this phone yesterday and i have not dropped it or caused damage and yet the flash wont work. I have tried taking the battery out like the Three website says but it doesn't work. I have tried putting the camera into party mode as someone suggested but still it didn't work. I have also made sure the Image stabilizer isn't on as the flash wont work when it is on but still my flash wont work. Any other suggestions?!  It seems quite a few people have problems with their flash on this phone.

Use the Mode button on the screen and set the camera into night mode / Auto Flash. That gets the flash going again. Then it seems to work again in other (eg Auto) camera mode again.

I also changed my ISO from 100 back to Auto when I made the change from night back to auto camera mode. I don't know if this made any difference.

The flash seems to lock out if you set the flash to "always off" at any point, then go directly to "auto".

It's a bug. I hope LG will upgrade the firmware when they fix it and the others.

Hey guys (and girls), I had this problem and that's how I came here. I don't know if this is the solution, but ten mins ago it didn't work, then I took of the case and next to the micro sd words (indented into the phone) there is a small metal button, I just pushed that and it came back on. I hope this is the problem and that I've helped you, if not, well, at least mine is working for now.
take it easy.

To the owners of a LG Ku990 the problem with your camera light may just be that the light is blown or disconnected from the circuit due to the heat that emits from the phone from using it for awhile because I've noticed the when the red eye reduction is on it flashes twice and although some might not have ventured into the phone i was surprising that the makeup of inside this phone was similar to a digital camera. besides that some of the methods mentioned in the other solutions might have worked for others due to "fiddling" with the phone so firstly to the few owners of this phone check your local mobile phone repair guy and see if its really one of the two symptoms mentioned above and good luck

My sony cyber-shot DSC-H10 flash stopped working. The flash pops up like it is going to work, but does not flash. I can take pictures but with noflash. Can you help me?


You flash is in ' Flash forced OFF ' position.Press on the flash control button repeatedly until one of the four modes are selected.

1.Flash Auto - Flashes when there is insufficient light or backlight ( Default Setting )

2.Flash forced on

3.Slow synchro - The shutter speed is slow in a dark place to clearly shoot the background that is out of flash light.

4.Flash forced off - ( Your current mode ).The flash automatically pops up and strobes when using the flash.Close the flash by hand after use.

How can you test a camera before use to be sure the flash sync is working properly.


Set camera up and aim at a blank wall. Place flash on camera, fire off test shots with camera set to flash sync speed and lens set to wide angle (eg 18 mm), ensure flash matches angle of lens. 
You will probably have to turn auto focus off, so that camera will fire, after taking photo/s use review to ensure that you have a nice even coloured piece of wall.
Any problems either with camera sync problems or flash coverage will show up in the test shots.
Camera sync, will show as part of the frame only exposed, for example you may find a horizontal line approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of frame with a proportion of the frame dark.
If you have flash "drop off" you will find the corners of your frame will be dark, you need to ensure that your flash angle specified on the flash and the focal length of the lens match.
Hope this helps Ian

Lg viewty camera flash not working


This worked for me: I turned the ISO to 800 and set the flash to "auto" - even in quite bright light the flash still goes off so I'd definitely try this. To turn the image stabiliszer off, press the "unlock" button next to the shutter on the side of the phone.

Sonyy w55 flash works but shot come really dark


Press Menu button
togle across from REC Mode to setup
togle down thrice from camera to setup 1
togle across into sub menu
togle down from four times to Initialize
togle across again to the sub-menu
togle up from cancel to OK
press center button to accept the OK choice
Screen changes and so press okay again
It should restart the camera
Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen
togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function.
If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction.
If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

Everything is so dark!


If the camera is working properly with other lenses, then you have a problem with that lens. In M, you can set the aperture yourself, and the photos come out properly exposed. When the lens is set to auto, apparently it is going to minimum aperture and not responding to the camera's 'instructions'. The thing that makes me think so is that you say everything looks dark through the optical viewfinder. Normally the aperture stays full open so you can see and compose your shot, and only stops down to the correct aperture when you actually take the shot. I would suggest having the lens checked by an appropriate camera service shop.

Camera not taking pictures


The camera may be trying to tell you that your flash is turned off in Auto mode, but to get a proper exposure you will need the flash turned on. Try turning the flash on and see if that works.

Hope this helps!
