This does not necessarily mean your phone is dead. Your phone will flash the red LED light briefly when the battery is completely drained. When I got this I left the phone in the charger for a while, and eventually the white "charging battery" icon appeared again. Upon turning on the device it had 0% battery. It was in fact so drained that it died while on ...

99% of the time the LED means "new, dismissable notification". I am unsure exactly how the LED color is chosen, but it seems to be based off the homescreen icon of the app; IMO has a blue icon/LED, Messanging (texts) has a green icon/LED, and Gmail has a while icon/LED. The color is consistent each notification from the app, so you will learn which color ...

I just saw it. It was a simple case of 100% discharged. To fix it use the power socket charger and not the usb charger from your laptop or desktop. The red light first goes down, then it will blink and then the white charging icon comes. Let it charge at least 10 minutes after that before you switch it on, otherwise it would shutdown again (but won't go to ...

If you have a US Galaxy S3, all LED programs have issues with the colors (Handcent, GoSMS, etc) except LightFlow. If you select Green, it will be Blue, etc. LightFlow works flawlessly. The problme I have with LightFlow is the battery would drain faster with the app installed. I ran a test where I left the phone idle for 55 mins (no screen on, no led ...

Red when plugged in - Charging Green when plugged in - Charging complete. Red when not plugged in - Low battery warning Blue - Audio is recording or you have a notification waiting.

There is no way to control the blink speed in the OS itself. However, Light Flow provides a plethora of options for colour, flash rate, etc. There are probably other equivalent apps too.

It depends on the app in question. Handcent SMS / GoSMS have options for changing the LED colour. As an aside, there's also the ability to configure per-recipient tones, vibrate modes, notification icons and of course LED colours. If you're looking for an all-in-one app to manage LED notifications for commonly used apps, give Light Flow a try. EDIT: Also ...

It's not actually possible to fully disable the LED for Gmail without disabling email notifications altogether. Your only alternative is to use an app like LightFlow (of which there is a free, 'lite' edition). Hopefully there will be a fix for this in a future update.

My answer here for a similar question points to the Missed Reminder app which appears to have an adjustable LED interval setting. Hope it helps.

The power consumption isn't noticeable. Even a tiny watch battery can run a small LED for a few days continuously. Increasing the blink rate won't change the power consumption at all: what makes a difference is how long the "on" part of the blink is compared to the "off" part. This is called the duty cycle of the LED. Most LED controllers use the duty ...

Also, it is a mighty alternative for stock sms app and has many useful functions and customizations. After you installed it, run and tap menu, then Settings, and go to Advanced -> Individual Settings and add any contact to set ...

I just had the same issue with my Nexus 4, phone suddenly died, press the power button and it would flash the white Google then turn off. I tried several times use the power button and even hold both volume buttons and power at the same time, nothing. So I plugged it in the charger and saw the blinking red light, thought, "Oh no this is not good." Then I ...

If it happens when the phone is off it's gotta be a bad hardware connection. I'm guessing on of the leads just barely makes contact or something. You may want to get a replacement.

Perhaps the app Notification Light Widget will help you. It gives you a widget to manually enable/disable the light. Can't get a lot simpler than that! Note that tweaking the notification LED is often a hit-or-miss operation with some devices. There's no promise that it'll work perfectly. Give it a shot and let us know how it goes!

You can use Light Flow to customize LED notifications; it also has a lite version. Light Flow allows you to take control of your notification LED colors and makes them successively flash one color after another. It also allows you to set repeating sounds on vibration patterns for you notifications. You can also set a "sleep" mode or "on charge" ...

This is a known bug in Xperia Z (sources 1 and 2). Currently the only way to restore the LED functionality is to: de-select Settings -> Backup & reset -> Backup my data and Automatic restore perform a factory reset from Settings -> Backup & reset -> Factory data reset Complete the reset manually (that is, without restoring apps/data ...

If your device is no more in an area where it can reach GSM network, the notification LED will blink (in white if you installed LightFlow). Still with LightFlow installed, the dark blie/violet blinking is the notification of a new SMS.

There are apps for controlling LEDs: LED Color Tester, Light Flow - LED Control Both does officially support Galaxy S3.

I am not sure that an App could get the low-level access needed to turn of the LED while charging. Your best bet is a custom ROM that has this low-level access and provides an API for an App or user setting. I would look at cyanogen mod.

I haven't seem any such options or settings for any device so far. You can try these apps LightFlow Lite Adjbrightness but I doubt these would work properly. (I can't check as my device doesn't have LED notification light.) I believe this kind of things are only doable via Custom ROMs. You would have to check your device development forums. Start here - ...
