    Hi folks.

    I've noticed that on my 9900 (w os 7.1) there is a constantly blinking dim LED to the left of the main LED. Does anyone know why it is blinking constantly and/or what purpose it serves?

    Thanks

    thats the proximity sensor

    i noticed the same problem with mines, it was solved with the latest 9900 leak

    i've also read that a battery pull solves it

    It disables the touchscreen while you are on a call, when the phone is against your face.

    I posted this on 9850/9860 forum and was redirected here. I actually tried a search but "red blinking light" didn't get a hit. I think the problem with search who knowing how to define the question, which isn't always easy.

    Anyway, last night my proximity sensor was blinking continually when not on a call. I rebooted and it stopped. Does this kind of blinking suggest a malfunction, or a good reason to reboot? Would you just ignore it? thanks.

    Battery pull and full stop.

    Hope the issue will be plugged soon in a future os release ASAP.

    I agree sometimes searching finds everything but what you really want.

    Is the constant blinking at times when not on a phone call a known problem?
