N95 camera light staying on!!

Not sure if Im in the correct section for this post? anyway..

I got a N95 8GB and up until about 2 hours ago no probs with it!!

Pulled the phone out of my pocket and the camera light on the back was lit up, never seen this before!!
Slid the phone open and screen was black but the buttons were lit up, so phone was still on.
Turned phone on and off about 3 times and screen came back to normal but camera light still on.
Phone works fine apart from I cannot turn this camera light off, as soon as I put the battery in the phone the light turns on!!!!

Any ideas what this can be?

Re: N95 camera light staying on!!

Ye updated to the latest firmware last night off the nokia website..
Took it to work today, took it apart and it looks like it has come in contact with water/liquid!!
So thouroghly cleaned it with IPA and stuck it in our industrial oven for 3 hours at 45c to dry it out, turned it on and the light is off but the screen is dark and cannot see anything on it at all!!!!

It has been working intermitently for about 2 hours through the day....

Im lost without my phone..

It powers on when pressed ON, I can make phone calls by inputing the number and pressing the green button, but still no screen!!

Any ideas??

Sorry, should have said I'd updated my firmware but the light is still on.

Phone works fine otherwise . . . will not try baking it though - even if it does put the light out - YIKES.

Re: N95 camera light staying on!!

Hi,

I have an N82 and have the same red-light problem. I had the battery out for the entire night and my phon ewas freezing **bleep** well and I had to keep switching on and off, the following day after the second attempt, it was fine, now today the light's back on and the battery's flat!

Please help - firmware? What is it and where can I find it??!!

Re: N95 camera light staying on!!

Firmware is the software in your phone...it keeps getting updated so you may need to download the latest version for your phone?
You can find it on this nokia site, somewhere in the software section, not sure exactly where, just have a nose about and you'll find it..

Re: N95 camera light staying on!!

I spoke to my service provider and it sounds like the phone has a virus which only they can fix otherwise if I download anything from the internet the warranty voids...good luck. What a pain.

Re: N95 camera light staying on!!

Mine is still on.

Virus excuse sounds a bit like Bull to me. Mine come on as soon as the battery is fitted. Can't see a virus doing that?

Mine lasts a day or so with fairly heavy usage.

Comes in quite handy now I'm used to it! LOL.

I've had my N78 for 3 months and it just started the light-stuck-on thing. :smileysad: I'm sure this is going to run the battery down fast. I wonder if it happened because the phone was bumped against something when it was in my pocket? It looks like it would be really hard to take this phone apart. This is going to drain the battery fast, I'm sure. :smileysad: I hope someone can share some info on how to solve this problem.

Re: N95 camera light staying on!!

I have confirmed this.  I took the battery out and let it sit out overnight in the house.  This morning I put the battery in and charged it for a while and no more "light on" condition on the back of the phone.
