Why does my front flash go off unexpectedly

My front flash goes off for no reason when the phone is sleeping.

Is this a good question?

I have the same problem, appeared after the Android 7 upgrade. Accessibility no longer has the Hearing option list available. I also checked through all Basic Setting sub-menus without success. Bug?


I have the same problem and I have looked everywhere for the setting to disable the led flash notification. After the last update it disappeared!

It sounds like you may have an accessibility setting turned on that allows the deaf to recognize they have a notification.

To fix: Just head to settings and click on accessibility. There is probably a list entitled "Hearing" which should contain the option to flash anytime there are notifications or calls. Turn this off to disable the feature.

Well I have that problem, went to settings, accessability and I don't have that option, what do I do?! I have a different menu now than when I got the phone, I guess an update (which I hate) changed it, is there a way to uninstall am update?


Not an option for me either... Other suggestions?
