    Hello,

    My Mom's Droid Pro has a constant red LED over where the notification light is. It's dim when the phone is on and bright when it's off. The only way to get rid of it is to take the battery out.

    Battery is at 50% so I don't think it's a low battery. She hasn't noticed it before and either have I. The phone seems fine other wise. No screen protector or case. Apps installed are:

    Bluetooth File Transfer
    k-9 mail
    The Weather Channel
    White Pages
    Yellow Book

    Any ideas?

    Check k9 mail app settings. Probably at notice for mail. Is there ANY unread mail?

    Is it the light closest to the speaker? If so thats a light sensor for automatically shutting off the screen when you're in a call. Its a known issue this light stays ons for no reason but you could try pulling the battery or shutting off the phone. There are a few more recent threads about but cant get the links from my phone and will post em later.

    Would that still be on even if the phone is turned off?

    I'm not sure. I just know it's where the notification light is at. Shutting off the phone doesn't get rid of it but battery pulling does. The moment the battery makes contact with the pins it comes back on.

    But if it's a known issue then I guess it's just a bug. As long as it isn't a bad omen or anything.
