Default Very Dim Notification LED

Hello all,
I just bought a 2nd hand HTC One X. Everything is working fine but there is a problem with its notification lights which are very dim and hard to notice. I am attaching pictures of it.

I will be thankful if anybody could shed some light on possible reasons for this.

Thanks.

Underneath the grill there is a piece of tape with a hole in the middle probably placed wrong or having a too small hole. It could also be the piece of tape to the left of the reflector that is covering the light.
I have removed both these on my device as I had this issue before

edit:
I also switched the backside from white to grey/black backside a month ago.
And I noticed that the light get dimmed no matter what so my theory is that 3'rd party non original parts do not fit as good as if I would have bought original parts. It could be the case because they look identical on the outside. The difference is that 3'rd party parts is not stamped with a serial number or partnumber and they might fit slightly different and need adjustment
