"No Camera Flash" flag under "Battery Monitoring Screen"
I was wondering if this is happening to someone:
When I try to take a picture with flash and the battery is below 50% the auto focus works with the flahs-light on and when fires do not re-launch the flash-light. At that time the device activates the flag "No Camera Flash" that can be seen in "Battery Monitoring Screen" through Engineering Screens.
I just did the test with 41% battery and this time neither the auto focus has brought the flash-light.
I changed the battery with an original about a week ago (after my adventures with batteries of dubious origin, but that's another story). This battery is 100% original, for the price and the two seals on the original box and the plastic bag inside. Is LG-JM1 and loading and unloading curves look great, nothing unexpected about drops from 80 to 100% or from 20% to 2% without warning.
Rebooting removes the flag of "No Camera Flash" but when you retry take a picture with flash is activated again.
Actually I'm not sure, but I think with the versions 247, 336, 492, 523 doesn’t happen, and I think it started happening in the 569, 714 and now 746. But I'm not sure. Could be a problem with the flash or software?
The old battery was ruined because using the "Hotspot” all the time, and cord-powered all the time, because the hotspot consume more than the battery can give and overheated the battery. But when I changed the battery solved the suddenly drops but not the flash-light weird problem.
It could also be an energy saving policy, but thanks to RIM and its change log mania, you never know what changed. I wonder if RIM understands that knowledge about something you own it’s important to the user.
