Have you tried to pull the battery? If that doesn't help, try upgrading the OS to the latest one.

I don't know this might sound a little weird but I had this happen to me. I dropped my phone (yes don't tell me I had a few choice words) well the flash was on all the time. What I noticed is one of the buttons on the side of the phone was for the camera. so I did this.

Options > Keyboard (I think) > Camera > Changed to nothing.

Now it's not on all the time and when I take photos it only comes on to flash! Weird. I don't know how that happened or if that was the actual fix but it worked for me. So yeah.

When you turn it back to automatic you have to make sure that you save your new settings just don't hit the end button.
