Default Notification light?

Hey everyone. I picked up my new m8 yesterday at the AT&T store but for some reason I can't seem to get the notification light to work. Even when it's charging it just says red it never turns green! Does anyone have this problem?

Mine was red while charging, and turned green when finished. Are you sure it is finished charging?

Yeah I'm sure. It was over night and even when I get messages etc. It doesn't even blink. I bought two and they are doing the same thing.

Ok I wasn't sure, but I just checked, my notification light definitely blinks green when there is a notification. Go to settings > display & gestures > notification light and make sure the boxes are checked.

As odd as it might be that you got two with the same problem, that might be the case. I can definitely confirm that the light blinks green for notifications, and is solid green when plugged up with a full battery on both of the one's my wife and I got.

Edit: Just found this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2704461 it seems that you are not the only one with this problem. It looks like a factory reset may fix it. Might be worth a shot anyway.

I had the same problem. I read on another forum that if you install another launcher the led stops working for notifications. When I first setup my phone restored apps and one of them happened to be a launcher. I did factory reset did not restore any apps and notifications led started working again. I'm not sure if another launcher had anything to do with it but the fix worked for me.

It's a bug in Android back up & restore. Your restore files get corrupt. Same with HTC back up.

Only way to fix it is by not restoring with either option. Just do a fresh start
