Nexus S flickering LED

So I have a question that might just end up being a hardware issue. I have an app on my Nexus S that lets me use the LED flash as a flashlight (which I find to be very useful and brighter than the iPhone LED). The LED has worked perfectly fine until recently when I noticed that it starts to flicker after a few seconds of being on. The flickering reminds me of a cheap LED flashlight where the build quality stinks and the power flow to the LED is interrupted, causing the flickering. I was hoping that this was just an issue with the app and I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it but the flickering continues. Is there anything I can do about this? I just got the phone a few months ago so it's not worth returning and replacing.

Hello meatballbox,

It looks like this would be a hardware issue.

I would suggest bringing your phone in for repair in a participating Fido store.

You can find the nearest store from you here:

So strangely enough, with great timing, my LED flash no longer works at all...
