Re: moto g3 flashlight not working

Moto G3 flashlight not working.  Also camera flash not working.  I noticed the camera flash not working and while trying to figure out why, I discovered the flashlight also not working.  The flashlight will work if I press firmly just below the LED, but it quits when I release the pressure.  The flashlight problem is an inconvenience, but the photo flash is much for serious for me.

Same here! LED works only when pressing the case against the screen.

Re: moto g3 flashlight not working

Has anyone tried using a third-party flashlight app?  There are several.

 

I have a G3, but have no such issue.  Had it since mid-2016.

Is it due to end of battery life and installing new battery will solve this issue

Re: moto g3 flashlight not working

I had the same problem. It was strictly mechanical.
I removed back panel and clear from dust and it solves it. I recommend to replace 2 sided tape too. MOTO XT1254

No, he can't explain because Moto does not support do it yourself repairs.  However, this phone is undoubtedly out of warranty, and there are a few good "how-to" sites on the web that can walk you through certain simple repairs.  I can't personally recommend any of them as being better than any other advice you'd get elsewhere.

Thats awkward.I don't care what moto thinks.
This is a form where we discuss issues and collectively find the best solution.
If you can't do that ,shut down this community and go to hell.
