using UnityEngine;
using Photon.Pun;

public class FlashlightTP : MonoBehaviourPunCallbacks {

public bool isOn = false;
public GameObject lightSrource;
public AudioSource clickSound;
public bool failSafe = false;
// Update is called once per frame
void Update()
{
if (!photonView.IsMine)
return;
if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.L))
{
if (isOn == false && failSafe == false)
{
failSafe = true;
lightSrource.SetActive(true);
clickSound.Play();
isOn = true;
StartCoroutine(FailSafe());
}
if (isOn == true && failSafe == false)
{
failSafe = true;
lightSrource.SetActive(false);
clickSound.Play();
isOn = false;
StartCoroutine(FailSafe());

What you're looking for is an RPC.

Do this instead:

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;
using Photon.Pun;

public class FlashlightTP : MonoBehaviourPunCallbacks {

public bool isOn = false;
public GameObject lightSrource;
public AudioSource clickSound;
public bool failSafe = false;
public PhotonView PV;
// Update is called once per frame
void Update()
{
if (!photonView.IsMine)
return;
if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.L))
{
if (isOn == false && failSafe == false)
{
PV.RPC("TurnOn",PhotonTargets.All);
}
if (isOn == true && failSafe == false)
{
PV.RPC("TurnOff",PhotonTargets.All);
}
}
IEnumerator FailSafe()
{
yield return new WaitForSeconds(0.25f);
failSafe = false;
}
[PunRPC]
void On(){
failSafe = true;
lightSrource.SetActive(true);
clickSound.Play();
isOn = true;
StartCoroutine(FailSafe());
}
[PunRPC]
void Off(){
failSafe = true;
lightSrource.SetActive(false);
clickSound.Play();
isOn = false;
StartCoroutine(FailSafe());
}
}

RPCs are like magic!
