Default Help, Rear camera flash is on.

My rear camera flash is lit up. When I power it off, the flash is still lit. I have tried clearing my cache, a full factory reset, and even tried taking a picture to try and turn it off. It is still on. I'm currently running the battery til its dead, at 65% now, and do a full recharge to see it if fixes it. I'm running on a fully stock Rom with no updates to install. Any ideas are more than welcome. Thanks.

Looks like nobody replied to this. Given the few days that have past, you may have already resolved this issue, but I'll have a go at it anyways. My first thought is that since the light stays on even when the device is off, it could very well be a hardware defect. My second thought is that you should open up the flashlight app (or download one from the play store if it didn't come with a rom) and attempt to toggle the LED via the app.
