Good morning @poocasi,

 

Allow us to lend a helping hand. Follow the instructions below,

  • Swipe down from the top of your screen to pull up your home screen settings
  • Look through the icons until you see one that resembles a small torch
  • Tap the torch icon to disable to flashlight

When your screen blacks out how long does it stay dark? Does tapping the screen make your device light up again? Thank you.
