My green blinking LED notification keeps flashing when screen times out but there no messages that I can find on my phone and my battery is fully charged. Could this be a lag issue with my e-mail ISP? It does nto matter if I am using 3G or WiFi. Seems to have just started in last week or so.
I made a mistake, well now it feels like a mistake, of installing light flow led controller on my Atrix 2 and it was a complete fail. So I uninstalled the app and now the LED notification light does not blink when it is in screen off mode. It blinks twice when you lock it, then the notifications stop. HELP! How do I reset the green notification flash?
How to use WiMAX LED on HTC EVO for SMS/MMS notifications "Since the notification LED on the left side of the HTC EVO 4G's earpiece isn't customizable, you can't tell if a flashing green light means a missed call, SMS/MMS, email, alarm, reminder, or voicemail without turning on the phone and looking at the screen. Wouldn't visual notifications be more useful if the WiMAX LED on the right side of the earpiece displayed some of them too? Then you could get a better idea of what was going on more quickly and decide whether it was worth stopping whatever you were doing to deal with it. Text messages, for example, are almost always important, so why not assign SMS/MMS notifications to the WiMAX LED? Here's how you do it: 1. Download bludragon742's WiMAX Notifier. The latest version (10.09.06), released earlier this week, doesn't require root and can be used for SMS/MMS (stock messaging app, Handcent, and Chomp have been tested). Later versions will support missed calls, Gmail, and voicemail. Install it on your EVO and launch it to adjust the settings. 2. Choose your desired LED color and blinking rate from the list: green slow, green glow, green & red alternate, orange glow, red solid, green solid, orange solid. Press Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Display -> Notification flash. 3. Uncheck the SMS/MMS option so that the standard notification LED does not blink when a message is received. Now whenever you get a new SMS or MMS, the WiMAX LED will let you know about it. And when the notification LED goes off at other times, you'll know it's not because of a text message"
My Blackberry Curve LED notification has stopped working. I have checked all of the parameters on the phone and LED notification should be on. It has always worked before today. I get no green flashes for wireless coverage and no red flashes for messages. Additionally, I have my phone set up so that when messages come in I get a tone. Now, all that the phone does fpr messages is vibrate.
I am so confused on notifications. This is what I see happening by default. SMS/MMS - Trackball Exchange Email - Trackball Gmail - Green LED Google Talk - Green LED Missed Call - Green LED In my Settings --> Sound & Display --> Notifications --> Notification flash ... everything is checked for Trackball. I'm curious is to how this is working for everyone else. I wish the trackball would only light up for SMS/MMS.
I just purchased the BlackBerry Bold today at an AT&T store.It is one amazing and beautiful piece of work. I was wondering: Is there any way to have the LED Flash as notification when you have a missed call? I set "Call Logging" to record all missed calls in MESSAGES in efforts of the LED Flash to blink, but that hasn't helped. It seems that the LED Flash only blinks when there's an email, text, or mms message waiting.On my Curve, the LED light would flash for any type of notification... missed call, new voicemail message.
I've noticed when I'm charging and using Google Nav in my car, sometimes I'll randomly get the green LED notification blinking in between the amber LED charging light, even when there's no new messages of any sort. Seems to go away once you unplug and plug it back in, but it's annoying since it gives a false positive for new notifications. I'm using the Rocketfish charger in case that makes any difference.
I have the X10 and recieved a text message in the early hours of the morning. The green LED which flashes to notify of the event is actually quite bright in a dark room and ended up waking me up (in fact, I was quite confused at first as to what on earth it could be lol!). Does anyone know if there is an app which controls either the brightness of the LED notification or can disable the LED notification altogether?
When I get a call, email, text message..etc.. my phone will make a noise once.. and then the LED will flash green. HOWEVER.. if I don't notice it.. it seems after a few minutes the LED stop blinking green. I often leave my phone on my night stand.. step out of the room for awhile.. come back.. look at the phone and the LED is not blinking.. but when I wake up the phone I show a missed call, new email, new text, etc. Is this how it is supposed to work? should the green LED keep flashing until I check the phone?
I'm finding that my LED indications that I set in SMS popup don't seem to work. Actually it seems that anything that would cause an LED blink as part of its notification and wake the screen up (e.g. SMS Popup, getting/missing a phone call) doesn't work properly. If I disable SMS popup and use the standard text message notifications I get the LED notification. I also seem to get new voicemail and new email LED notifications (they don't wake the screen up).
Anybody know why my green LED stopped blinking all of a sudden? I just got 2 texts (stock messaging app) but my light is not blinking anymore. I see the notification on the top of my screen, but no light. The light isn't broken as it still lights up w/ emails.
I rooted today, didn't install a ROM yet but went ahead and put P3Droids low voltage 1000 kernel on my droid to see what it was like and wow! If I thought my droid was fast then but I've got one question, my notification led is blinking green now when its in standby, normal?
Has anybody found a way to make the trackball blink for various other notifications other than SMS and eMail? I use google talk all the time and I would love to have the trackball light blink slowly (just like the normal alert for a waiting SMS message) when I receive a google talk message that I haven't read. Or how about gMail? They light up the notification led blinking green but there is no trackball notification. I'm actually quite surprised there doesn't seem to be any setting I can find to make the trackball blink for various notifications. My phone's already rooted so that should expand my options but I haven't found anybody that's done this yet.

I have a refurbished Storm1 with the upgraded 5.0 software. I noticed that the color of the LED is now somewhere between blinking red and yellow while charging. When fully charged the LED turns an unblinking solid green.With the previous storm on 4.7 the charging LED light was blinking green.The phone charges and all other LED colors seem to be as before. I was wondering if the LED was supposed to behave like this on the new software.
I just download whatsapp messenger and try it. but after receiving a message, the LED notification was flashing continuosly, even after I read the message and delete ithow, as my battery will drained if the LED is always flashing.I already set the LED notification to OFF in the setting menu, but when I received the message from whatsapp it start to flashing RED again
I've used exclusively Google Voice for voicemails, and not the VZW service, for over 6 months. I figure all VZW voicemails are cleared out by now. But still, the little "tape" icon is displayed in the notification banner. When I enter the voicemail app, I see that I do have one voicemail. Also, the green LED blinks incessantly sometimes (but sometimes not??). I think the voicemail notification and LED blinking are related.Is there any way to disable notifications for the VZW voicemail, both the notification icon and/or the LED blinking? The Menu button has no effect in the voicemail app, and I don't see any applicable setting in the phone's Settings menu.Or, is there some way to clear/empty/disable my VZW voice mailbox without deactivating Google voicemail for my phone?
I am trying to figure out what is going on with my Blackberry 8220 Flip on T-mobile and any help would be greatly appreciated..I hadn't used it in a while, and yesterday after putting my sim card in, wiping the phone, and charging the phone it turned on, made phone calls, and sent text messages fine. But when I turn it off the LED keeps blinking green. The LED only blinks green when the phone is OFF. When the phone is powered on the green light stops completely. I double checked and the LED coverage indicator is turned OFF.Anyone have any idea why the LED is blinking green only when the phone is off?? It never used to do this before and I couldn't find any information on it online.

My sound and LED flash has stopped working for just blackberry messenger messages.Regular text messages still have sound and LED notification.I check my sound profiles and they are still set to tone and have the repeat notification to LED flash, but it's not working. I did a battery pull to see if that would help, and it didn't work. Do you know of anything I can do?
I am using handcent for my sms. i think it is great, i can customize it heaps how i want it. however there is an option for changing the colour/rate of the LED blink light for when i get a text, however no matter what i pick it never changes. the little light at the top always blinks every 4-5 seconds in a green colour when i have a new message, however i would love for it to blink blue every second (as i have tried to set it) so that i can differentiate the notifications from reminders and other notifications. is this a problem with the phone not doing wat it is supposed to, or the application isnt working? or a combination, maybe the desire doesnt have any other colours for its LED light?
The default setting for RED LED notification is when a new message is received, it will blink.My question is how can I set up my phone such that it will keep continue blinking until I read the message.Right now the blinking will stop after some time (~5 min?) even if I have NOT read the message.
Right, i have nimbuzz set to vibrate and put a notification up when i get a message and the green LED at the top flashes, but how can i make the trackball flash when i get a message, also, when i get an sms, the trackball only lights up a few times, how can i make it last longger?
So after the new update my phone was working fine. No unusual resets, no problems at all. Now when I receive any notification, the LED lights blinks like normal. Once I check & clear the notification, the LED still blinks. How can I stop this, besides turning off the LED notifier?
I know that the LED is supposed to flash green when you have a notification, text, missed call, whatever. My question is does anyone's LED actually flash is the phone is sleeping? I figured that even though the screen was off the light would flash so you could tell something was there without having to turn the screen on, but I haven't noticed it. As soon as I turn the screen on, that is when it seems that the light will flash.
The only notification light I am seeing is the trackball glowing every 10 seconds. The spec sheet makes it seem like the led above the screen is also supposed to be used for notification ala my G1. I tested it using sms and email and the notification ringt one rings but then no flashing led, just the pulsing white trackball every 10 seconds. One thing I really liked on my G1 was seeing the notification led's and being able to tell if it's an email, missed call, or sms by the color of the led flashing. Is anyone else's led notifying them? Oh, and my led isn't broken. When I plug it in to charge it's orange and turns green when finished charging.
Right now I have a green LED that blinks when I have a text or email, and a blue one that used to be for a facebook message, but now it is purple. How did this change? Where do I go to set up what the LED blinks for, and what color?
Here's my problem, on my Eris, I recently flashed Kaosfroyo, and now when I have a notification, it blinks the trackball not the LED. Is there a way to make a global setting to use the LED for any notification that's not on going? I'm rooted, obviously, so I'll try almost anything.
i've noticed since the update this morning late last night that the LED notifications are now showing even when i'm charging my phone. you can choose amber or green LED blinks too.
Let's say i'm texting back and forth with someone, so the threaded SMS screen is open. When I get a new message, it shows up on the screen, my phone does the alert ring/vibrate, and the LED flashes. But, if I don't immediately start typing a reply, or go back to the main list of all messages, the LED continues to flash. I'll even scroll up to the most recent text, but that does nothing.Why does the LED keep blinking when its clear I've read the most recent SMS?!
I can't future out how to have the led green light flash when i get an sms now only my trackball blinks. Does anyone know how to make the green light flash again?
Got my android yesterday havent really played with it other than installing app killer, and checking to see if i could root(i cant :sadface and noticed on my mothers phone(same droid eris) that her notification light was blinking Green. i Checked the manual from the verizon website and all it mentions is green solid, red solid, and red blinking, nothing about Green blinking. It was not plugged in, it was not being used. I thought it was perhaps saying "hey you have a new message/email/missed call" but she had no notifications. anyone know what Blinking green means?
T-mobile wings ( HTC atlas) Want to turn off service blinking LED.the green led on my wings blinks when i have service. .. ALL the time. and i hate it, i want to be able to have it blink when i have a msg or missed call or anything of that nature but i do not want it blinking all the time, ( as it does now because it is a service indicator)ive looked everywhere and cant seem to find it.
quick question regarding the LED coverage indicator.I currently have 2 bb's a curve 8310 and of course a bold 9700. i have set both bb's to have the LED coverage indicator on. the curve 8310 LED constantly blinks green while the 9700 only blinks while im on a call or if i am using my bbm. the BOLD always has full bars of coverage so im not sure if they changed the way the led indicator works or if there is just a problem with my 9700.
I want Gmail notifications to show in the notification bar, but I don't want the green blinking light on my Droid because it's woken me up sometimes at night while in the dock. How do I disable the green blinking light while leaving all the other notifications?
Since I'm new to BB's and the 8220 at the same time I don't know if this is supposed to be the case or not I got 2 SMS messages today, it was during a meeting at work so I had the phone set on Quiet which I have left the LED Flashing in the Profile options. So I was expecting to have a blinking red light telling me that had messages waiting, but it wasn't until I checked the time on the external display that I noticed I had a notification waiting. Is there a reason I might not had a blinking light? My co-worker has a Bold says that his blinking light only stays on for about 5 minutes after the notification was received, but with his old Pearl it would keep on blinking all night long Is this a OS 4.6 thing?
I just recently noticed that the notification LED would no longer work or blink if there is an incoming message or missed call IF THE SCREEN IS OFF. I am confused since the it will work if the screen is on (which is the opposite before the update).Before I got the update, the notification LED works as it should. This is clearly a bug, and needs to be fixed. It isn't something that can disable the total functionality of Xperia Ray users?
I have enabled the notification LED on my Desire for all events. And it starts blinking. But it blinks for 5 minutes only, then goes off. Same thing on Hero. There is no entry to specify how long to blink. I want the LED to blink until I turn the phone on. Otherwise it is useless.
I have had my storm for a week now and after restarting to finalise deleting some apps this green flashing LED light came on. But it's not like a coverage indicator where it flashes constantly it flashes 8 times then goes of for about 5 minutes and then flashes again. So I tried a battery pull to see if it would go away and the green LED did but now the exact same thing is happening except the LED is red (flashes 8 times stops for 5 mins flashes 8 times and so on)
I was looking for an answer to this question through various searches on the internet, and was hoping that maybe someone here could help. When I receive a new message, I my phone (on the normal setting) displays a flashing red led to let me know that I have a new, unread message. However, after about 5 minutes or so, the led stops blinking. Is this normal? Is there some way to set the led to keep blinking until the message has been read? I'm also having another issue where certain messages (such as password reminders from this site) are being received but seem to be automatically set to 'read' and shown as open as soon as I receive them. Therefore, I don't get a new message indicator or a red blinking led. That might be the topic of another post.
I just got the 8900 yesterday, and I had skipped the setup when I opened it up yesterday. Today I decide to restart my BB because I was removing a Google mobile app, so once I restarted, I got the BB set-up tutorial thingy popping up again. So I set the language and set it to not to remind me afterwards. However, once after doing so, the green LED starts flashing green. I asked one of my friends, and he says its Coverage, and told me to turn it off. And I did as I was told, yet its still flashin green. The LED itself isnt flashing constantly like it should in Coverage tho, it blinks about 7-8 times, before it stops, for half a minute and starts blinking once again. Its irriating and I would like to turn it off for good I'm on Rogers carries, and im running 18.104.22.168 OS.
Has anyone actually managed to change the colour of their LED? Handcent (the SMS app) gives you options to not only change the colour but also the frequency of LED flashes. I have set it up a few times but every time I get a text message, it is he usual green, slow flash - and even then it doesn't always work. Sometimes I look at my phone with no LED flashing at all, pick it up to do something else, then notice there is an unread text..
Anyone on the hero been able to get the LED to flash another colour other than green for notifications?, lots of market programs have the option to change colour for different events mine only ever flashes green. I assume this isn't a feature available on hero at moment, maybe it will be enabled in new version, I really could do with it.
Does anyone know how long your led light notification blinks for missed calls and text messages etc.I thought is was to blink until you checked the missed call or message.Mine is going off after 5 to 8 minutes without going into the phone and checking the missed call or text.Is this normal?
In several of the battery tips/tricks to help batter life, they recommend to turn off the LED notifications for sms mms email etc. Well, it seems that even when all mine are un-checked the LED light still flashes green when I get a text/email etc. I'm refereing to the LED light that comes on when you charge the phone.
After I updated to 2.3 the notification LED has stopped working.It just flashes white every so often, but doesn't flash green/blue for other notificaions (SMS/Email/FB) as it used to.It does still turn orange/green when on charge.
I'm trying to figure out what they do and what they mean. So far, here's what I think I've figured out. The translucent white track ball on the bottom blinks slowly about every 10 seconds when you have a new email or message. The top tiny LED to the right of the ear piece glows steady green when fully charged and steady red when charging. I recall it blinking green at one point but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make it do this or what that would mean.Do any of you have any info. about either the [phantom] blinking green LED or any other status light issues?
I used this app on my original Motorola Droid and loved it, but I have noticed some problems with it on the Incredible. I'm wondering if it's just me or if anyone else has had these problems as well. 1. LED Light does not change color. No matter what color I set the LED light to in the Handcent app, it always just blinks green. This isn't necessarily a huge deal, but I liked having my text messages blink a different color than my emails and other notifications. 2. LED light does not always blink and screen does not turn on. I noticed that the LED light only flashes once in a while, no matter what type of blink setting I choose. Also, the screen does not turn on when I get a text even though I have the box checked that is supposed to enable the screen to turn on despite having the popup box disabled. Once again, not a huge deal, but it would be nice if these things worked since I got used to these features on the Droid. 3. Phone does not vibrate at all when in Vibrate mode. Ok, this one is a huge deal. No matter which vibrate settings I choose, the phone will not vibrate when I receive a text if the phone is in vibrate mode. I am missing tons of texts now because I need to have my phone silent for most of the day. I checked the recent reviews of the app and didn't see anyone complain about this, so I don't know if there is just something wrong with my phone or if the app just isn't very compatible with the Incredible.
I am working on a simple app for the HTC EVO that blinks the alternate notification LED when a new text message is received. I have this part working great via a Broadcast Receiver but I need some way to turn the LED off when the user has read the message(s) using their default SMS app. I'm not sure if it is best to do this in the receiver or in a background service.
For some reason from time to time after I get an SMS, MMS, or Facebook notification after i check the message and read it, the red LED stays on and flashes the only way i can get it to quit blinking is to do a battery pull. Whats going on here?
My red led on my storm will randomly start flashing even when I have no new messages or emails. I have checked everything, and i never have anything new coming in when it starts to blink. I have also disabled the led to not blink at all when new messages come in, however it still blinks. So my question is this. why is my storm randomly blinking, and should I install an led reset app? I searched previous forums and someone suggested to another BB user to install an led reset app and that should fix the problem.
I've had a 8130 Pearl for two months now and during that time whenever I missed a call I thought the LED indicator would flash red. Today I missed a call but the LED did not flash anymore. I checked my ringer profiles and they are all set for repeat notification on the LED. My roomate just got a 8130 today and I tested to see if the LED would flash after a missed call and it doesn't. Does the LED actually flash after a missed call or am I mistaking it for text message notifications? I've searched on this topic and some people say there is no missed call indicator and others say there is as long as repeat notification is set to on. I'd like to know so I can confirm if I'm going crazy or not
I had a RAZR that failed and I replaced it with something else. (don't ask) Now I want to consider a Droid 4, but I can't remember if the RAZR had a notification LED for missed calls & messages but the real question is does the Droid 4 have a notification LED? This is important to me, as I need to keep my phone on silent a lot of the time, and the flashing LED is about the only way I know if I've missed a call (without waking the screen.)
