Default [Q] HELP! HTC One LED dim problem [VIDEO EXAMPLE]

So, I haven't noticed until recently, but the LED notification light on my HTC One has become incredibly dim. I thought this was initially due to wear on the device, but I recently discovered that the LED becomes its old self for a few seconds when you charge it with the power off.

Can anyone help me make the LED burn as brightly as it did when I first bought it? I'm uploading a video example of this in action.

http://youtu.be/69LnDOXBluY (You may need to watch in HD due to the low light)

As you can tell from the video, there is something in that initial "Oh, it's time to charge" screen that makes the LED operate normally, then when the screen flashes, it goes back to being barely visible.

Any help on the subject would be greatly appreciated. I just recently did a full GPE conversion on my phone, and before this on the custom rom I was using, I didn't have a screen or LED showing the device was charging when it was powered off, leading to this recent discovery, despite the LED being dim for quite a while in normal usage.

Damn I was also looking for a solution. I had a htc one with huge gaps that I exchanged the led on that unit would light up rooms in pitch darkness. On my new one it's super dim

True. I used a fine paint brush to clean both grills. I noticed a huge increase in volume, and the LED was much brighter.

Took a few seconds of duster to clean off dirt that I didn't realize was covering my LED.
