Black photo at night even using flash

I just notice that the moment when the camera take the photo and the flash is active are not in sinc (both main camera and wide-angle camera). Futhermore the flash seems very poor and more yellow than white (from my phone day 1 in November 2019). I'm on .110 if matter.

    Zenfone 6 is equipped with a dual LED flash : one is white, the other is a little yellow.

    Then seems like I have never seen the white's one (the brighter?). Is there a way to activate ONLY the white's one, at the aim of see if it is working at all? Could be this the problem that produce black photo on, let me say, a dark room?

    You probably have one of the two LEDs faulty, it will be necessary to have your phone serviced if it is.

    Sorry, you know one way to check if both led are correctly working? I've triedthe "Camera Flash Test" from "Device Examination" but the test is inconsistet; it doesn't let you active 1 flash at a time, simply flashes some times and ask you how many time it had flashes; every test can be different from the previous one and it can flash only one time. How one person can say 2 different leds are working fine if the test involves even the case in which there is one single on-off? Seem like test for stupid people or am I missing something?

    You can easily test the LED duel in this way. Turn on the flashlight from the appropriate Quick Setting Tile, take one 3.5" diskette (or any other floppy disc) with your finger by sliding the floppy disk cover open and look at the LED through the magnetic disk. You should see two glowing points above each other.

    If not already done, clear the Storage and Cache Camera application to make it clear that everything is fine in terms of application settings. Then make some photos and check results again.


  • If the stock test was made in the correct way we doesn't need floppy disks or any other stuff but anyways I've tried from the Quick Setting Tile (you can teach me that camera app and this tile are non correlate at all) with some white papers and I see only one led on (I think the upper one). I also cleared cache and storage but nothing change both in photos and flash quick tile behavior. Thanks.

    Yes, built-in SMMI TEST ignore that we have dual LED. Here, Asus has much to improve.

    I turned on the flashlight from the appropriate Quick Setting Tile and use 3.5" diskette and I clearly saw two glowing points above each other. Using paper is not a good idea at all, you have to do it the same way to be sure. Through floppy disks, people even look at solar eclipses, no one is looking through white papers.

    To be honest, this dual LED flash is not something really improving your pictures, don't expect to have something extraordinary whatever you have the white or the yellowish flash.

    Maybe in the dark I can take a picture different from a black screen if the second led decide to turn on ?I tried even in safe mode with no results. Because I don't have a floppy disk at the moment, I used my sunglasses and like with paper seems only the upper led turns on (the yellowish one I think, which is the less brighter). Seems like my phone have this problem from the first day because I've always seen only the low yellow light.

    Are you using the default camera app ?

    Because yes, on Snapchat, the flash is late and the picture is dark ...

  • If you can only see one LED on when turning the flashlight on, then something is wrong. Please contact your ASUS Support.
