Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Camera Light Won't Turn Off!

The camera light on my blackberry pearl won't turn off and stays on constantly unless I take the battery out. Even when I check that the flash is on Off, it doesn't work. Even when I turn the phone completely off, the flash stays on. Also, once I take the battery out, the second I put it back in, it turns on again. When I'm on the video setting and I press the space bar to turn the flash on, it becomes brighter once set to on but goes back to this already super bright when set to off. I've read a couple other forums for this same problem but the only advice found was to go to the store and get technical help for it. Please and thanks for any insight or help!

    Same exact problem here. This morning the light turned on and it won't turn off unless I pull the battery out. I tried updating the firmware, but it didn't help. The weirdest thing is that when I turn on the camera app, the flash turns off, but it turns on again as soon as I close the camera. Really frustrating. All the message boards I've seen don't have a solution.

If your BB has the video camera function go into it, and then into the options and check and see if the video light is set to on or off, My turns off with the video camer but your may be set to on???

Radio keeps shutting off

When there is no signal around ur blackberry will shut off the radio instead of constantly searching for one which really kills battery power just make sure you arent in a real signal dead area and you should be fine to turn it back on just go to manage connections and click it back on,if this is not the problem then there might be some problem with ur phone.

I solved it!! All I did was take the battery out for about an hour, put it back in and charged it for an hour, then turned the phone on and it has worked ever since.
