I have a new N8 and the camera flash does not work. I have tried it in automatic mode and manually set it to on with no result. I have also tried a reboot and this also had no effect.
Has anybody else had this problem, or will a visit to a repair centre be my only option.
I have purchased the Nokia N8 just weeks back and I find the same problem. My xenon flash is not working. I have tried every option available in the camera settings, rebooting the device but in vain.
Today I had been to the service center and they communicated that the device software needs to be re-installed. I tried even doing the same but the flash does not work.
I have no option but to hand it over to the service center for checking the hardware. It is really disgusting.
Has any one countered the same problem and has got a solution ?
My flash has stopped working too. I've had the phone since November, it worked while taking one photo then tried to take another a couple of seconds later no flash. I've also tried manually setting the flash to on and resetting the phone
If the unit appears to have failed, you should contact your nearest Nokia Care point who will diagnose the issue, and assuming that there are no external factors to consider the devices should be fixed under warranty.
For details on how to find your nearest point, please see the 'support' pages of the Nokia web site for your country.
Yeah, and I'll then have to wait a month for your **bleep** costumer service to give me back my phone.
Thank you Nokia, you suck and have managed to lose a faithful costumer.
Does the phone have to be sent away? No chance of a fix while Im there? the nearest nokia care centre is over an hour away and would be annoying to get there and leave empty handed.
Actually its seems that its a manufacturing defect with NEW nokia N8 coz I also find same problem with new N8 red lights working fine but FLASH doesn't... And if its new dont go to care give it back to VENDOR he will swap it with NEW... Thanks
I just successfully "repaired" my N8's flash. I hit my desk twice with some anger (bang, bang) in my movement and now the Xenon fires without problems. Might be some dust or shaky contact insides, but I don't care.. it is working like when it was new.
