    I have a red flashing light on the left at the top of my Galaxy S3 phone when the screen is asleep (blank), it is not all the time but randomly, the battery is full, so no problem there. I cannot find the answer to this anywhere. I restart the phone and it is then ok for a day or so

    I actually recently purchased this phone as well and had the same problem. A Google search did nothing to help, except vaguely. Check your notifications. I believe it may occur when you have notifications regarding updates, which is why the light is an urgent, flashing red. I cleared that notification, and my LED indicator is no longer flashing.

    I hope that might be the answer to your problem! If it's not, then I don't think I have a clue.

    Not familiar with the s3 interface, but I would imagine it's similar to my s4. In the settings check the LED settings and there may be a description as to what the colors mean.

    I have the galaxy s3 neo and using kitkat. The red LED started blinking for me aswell and it was the "Light up the red LED when the device is charging..." feature that had bugged out after disconnecting the charger.
    I only had to restart the device to fix it tho.
