Notification Light not working

My Notification Light is  not working. When I receive emails, SMS messages or text messages nothing lights up the Notication Light. Yet it's checked in the display settings. Anyone eise having the same issue?

 

 

Why is this phone plagued by so many problems?

Re: Notification Light not working

So if the light is not working with stamina mode on I assume it as a bug...

Its not a bug but a way to save battery

Not a bug and not a feature. Not true at all.

 

I have Z1, you don't, so if you don't know it for sure, why you keep repeating this...? 

Never mind. Led WORKS in Stamina mode. Disabling it this way would be pointless. It's a *notification" light.

 

@dswn67

It should work regardless of Stamina setting. If the option is checked, it should light up while charging (red -> orange -> green cycle) no matter if screen is on or off, and when call/message/whatever is received when the screen is off.No way to see it blinking if the screen is on.

 

If it doesn't work it's a malfunction or effect of the improperly uninstalled/buggy app managing the notification light.

 

Easiest way to check if it is a hardware problem is to go to dialpad, enter *#*#7378423#*#*, go to service tests -> LED/illumination. If it works there, it's a third party software problem, not the phone or firmware one.

If it doesn't work on the test, you can try to make a repair via PC Companion or SUS, but if it still doesn't work after that -  then you need to return the phone for a repair as you cannot do anything more.

Re: Notification Light not working

I'm sorry... but I don't know what just happened..
Did I offend anyone? Where?
Asking a question is disrespectful? Or pointing out a false information? Is it about that?
OK mate, I'm truly sorry if you felt offended, it was not my intention at any point.
My intention was to correct the information and explain how the led really works in the Z1. Nothing more.

Re: Notification Light not working

@ Archanos, thank you for sharing your idea using the service test. For my Z1, during the test the white LED was not showing up. For your suggestion using PC companion, may i know on how to fix it from that software? Thanks again for your support.
