    Notification LED - Can't get it to stop blinking

    When the phone is not on the charger the LED is always blinking. I have turned off all of the notifications to blink the LED. What else could be causing it to blink. I need to have it next to me at night time but also don't want it to blink all of the time.

    Is it blinking GREEN or RED? If it's blinking green it is telling you that it has signal and you can't turn that off without a registry hack.

    I would like the hack too. I don't understand why it needs to blink to show that it has service. It is not like old days where services was hard to come by.

    the hack was on howardforums.com....I searched for it but wasn't able to find it. I posted a topic to see if someone is currently using it.

    Found it.
    "Here is my thread on the indicator lights

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthr...threadid=515749

    Here is a revised procedure for turning the Green LED off. Cabrio came up with this.


    2. To keep the Green LED from flashing or coming on at all go to

    Hkey_Local_Machine/Drivers/Builtin/NLEDMGR leave the dll name as NLEDMGR.dll

    2a. Change the Index value below it to "0" it is currently set to "1".

    This seems to completely shut off the LED and keeps it from getting called up.

    Make sure you soft reset after making the reg. change.

    Do this at your own risk.

    regards

    Do the notifications (RED led blinking) still work with the above setting?

    Thanks Mick,

    I tried it and it works. That LED is shut off. I sometimes use the phone as an alarm clock, so before I'd have to cover it up so it's not blinking at night. Now I won't have to. I don't know if the notifications still work though, I would doubt it, since the light no longer even goes on when it's in the charger. It's fine with me though, I don't need that light.

    Now if someone could just write a small app that would allow us to toggle it on/off without making manual registry changes . . .

    How do I hack the registry? I have done it on PCs but not Pocket PCs.

    I use the Resco File Manager, which treats the registry as simply another folder. I just drill down until I get to the key I'm looking for, then modify it, close file manager, and soft reset.
    There are other registry editors available, but I'm not familiar with them.
