flashing notification light won't stop!

A red light flashes 7 times every minute or so. I updated my phone 2 weeks ago and it has been doing it ever since. I have rebooted and it hasn't stopped. Any ideas?

Hi tchdwn15,

 

What color is the LED flash? Do you see any new message notifications? Have you tried reinserting your battery?

 

Cheers,

Re: flashing notification light won't stop!

It's a red light. I don't have any new notifications and yes I have taken the battery out a couple of times. Could it be something to do with the network?

Try the following security wipe process (if you have data you would like to retain perform a backup as shown in the article):

Make sure you test the LED notification issue to confirm it is resolved before restoring any data from your backup file.
