But the golden rule you need to remember is to not let the Flashlight stay On for long, it can overheat your device and battery. Simply reboot your device whenever flashlight doesn’t turn off.

One simple solution to fix a flashlight not turning off is to reboot your device. And if you’re not able to reboot your device by the usual ways, try removing the battery or force reboot by pressing Power and Volume buttons together for a few seconds.
