    Exclamation Red infrared light on why??? (red dot)

    the red infrared light on the top left of the phone where there is those two little sensor holes you can barely see. in the right sensor hole the tiny red light just randomly went on on my girlfriends droid pro shes had it for two weeks and it just went on today. it is a dim red light it also happened to my droid 2 global after having it for a week after a couple hours i reset my phone because i got annoyed and it went away but it isnt that noticable im just really anal. it doesnt effect the phones performance from what i can tell nothing is different but why did it go on all of a sudden? one of the sensors is for face detection i think thats the one on the left and i think the one on the right is for autobrightness detection. she doesnt use autobrightness. does anyone know why the light is on?? please help

    Well if the light was infrared you couldn't see it so I wouldn't worry about it.

    If you mean the orange/red LED then I think that's a system notification, low battery, or low memory.

    Red led usually means low battery. Make sure there's no notifications in your top bar. Just to see if its a notification reminder for something else. Also go to settings: about phone: system updates. Might be getting an OTA.

    The flashing red light you are referring to is the infrared light from your proximity sensor. The light emits an infrared beam which is read by the sensor next to it. It does not mean anything. That is just how it works.
