    red LED light incoherent

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    My LED light on a 8700 while in case flashes red when the e-mails come in, but only _sometimes_. The setting is for the light to flash red when in case and e-mail comes. When an e-mail comes, the bb always vibrates, but then the light doesn't always turn red from green. Please help.

    Thank you!

    I turned my LED Coverage Indicator off - the flashing green light. The only time the light flashes is when I have messages waiting. This made it easier for me.

    Re: red LED light incoherent

    Thank you for your responses. My problem isn't that it's flashing too much but that it's not flashing every time I get an e-mail. I'll get one e-mail and it flashes red as I want it to, and then for the next 2 it won't (i.e. it still flashes green as if nothing new is in the inbox). I can never tell by just looking at the light whether I have e-mail or not and I want to be able to... :cry:

    Great idea on turning the coverage indicator light off. The flashing light was disturbing at night. (i've been here 20 min and am already getting great tips!!!!! COOL)

    OK, now I got it; thank you. What bugs me though is that it's supposed to work, and it's a brand new device, too!!

    just to clarify: when you have the coverage indicator off, it will flash red when you get a new message, or missed a call, or a pin or bb message.

    It will flash until you do something, such as read a message, at which point it will stop flashing... until you receive more messages...

    What I am trying to say is that it doesnt flash for every mail, it indicates that something has happened since you last did something

    Re: red LED light incoherent

    I turned off the network light, as you suggested, but I guess even that will only go so far... Thanks for everybody's help!! I found the following link, which answers it.

    Go to Google, type in "blackberry 8700 red light"; 5th link down leads you to Cingular forums. (I can't paste a URL here) The following quotes are from there:

    "after 15 minutes the red LED changes back to green. I would like to have the red LED flash until the item is dismissed."

    "As would a lot of others! But at the current time, this is not an available option."

    I think this may be what happens to me...

    I think I don't agree... I have my green light (coverage indicator) off, any I am pretty sure that it hen blinks red until I read a mail (or mark one as read)

    Mines the same as oxide. Red led blinks until I either read the email or reply to a message in any messenger prog.
