Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

Its Weather bug.  My red light flashes when I receive a weather alert.  So check there.  Once you click on the alert it should go away.

 

Hope this helps

Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

Like it said in earlier posts, there can be a number of reasons. Mine happened because of my Voice Mail. Had a VM, called in to listen to it and hung up as soon as I was done listening. The red light was flasing and I had the icon on the screen. My carrier told me that when I`m done, I shouldn`t JUST hang up. I should press the " * " key on the keypad. That resets the Voice Mail before hanging up. No more red light, no more VM icon.

Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

The same thing happens for me. I learnt something new today and when my red light started flashing I did it and a error message was logged at the same time it started flashing. only thing I can sugesst follow the steps below see if you also get a error message and call your carrier to see if they can help resolve. on the bb press and hold the "aA" and at the same time press "lglg". this will bring up the even log.

Just a correction to my last message its the "alt" button you have to hold down, and also once I cleared the log the red light stopped flashing.

Try Going to Options

                       Screen/Keyboard

                       Then turn LED Coverage Indicator ON/OFF

Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

I have the same problem from time to time and can't figure out why. The only way I'm able to get rid of it without rebooting my device is by clearing the event log a couple of times (you pull it up by hitting alt then lglg). Hope this helps.

Re: Why does the Red Light at the top keep flashing?

I really need a lot of help. I've sent in my phone for repair and just got it back recently. Up till now the LED has been blinking when I have cleared all my notifications. WHY? It's a new phone I received and it has been giving me this type of problem since the first one i got. Both of them are Bold 9900s. Do leave some advice for me.
