Ugh

I had this issue on my LG G2 where, randomly, the green LED status light would start flashing like there is a notification, when there is none. This is related to the Alarm. I posted this over in the G2 forums and I will post it here.

How to fix:

Clear all Notifications
Turn off Screen
(wait for notification light to blink) [confirm]
Turn on Screen
Go to Clock, disable Alarm
Double tap Status bar / Turn off Screen
(wait for notification light to NOT blink) [confirm] [fix]
Turn on screen and enable your Alarm.

The LED light should no longer blink for no reason.

Really kind of disappointed in the G4 software wise. On my G2, this issue and the lagging/FCing keyboard was huge issues that made me want to upgrade to the G4. Sad to say that even the newer software and newer hardware, these bugs are still present.

The only issue I've had regading the blinking lights was if I swiped away a notification from the lock screen and locked it again, it would blink until I pulled down on notification bar. Same thing?

Nope. It randomly just starts flashing. I do turn off notifications from facebook and XDA via android system....

Happened twice tonight already since 5pm. During the day I am hammered with work emails, gmails, text, and hangouts so I dont notice it much. But a night when its flashing but there are no notifications, i have to disable the alarm amd reenable to fix it.

Same with my old G2.

Maybe the disabled notifications are turning on the LED notification but android is hiding the actual notifications. I will try reenabling them and disabling them via the apps.

Update:
Clearing those apps in the Sounds and Notification settings menu per app page, did turn the light off. So maybe that is the bug.

It started on my G2 when lollipop update came out. It is easier to disable app notifications this way as they come in by holding the noification and disabling it on the andoid side. I'll report back if thats it.

Well the alarm toggle is just a quick way to turn it off.

I do think the connection as been found with the Android notification hiding. I havent had the problem reoccur since I "allow all notifications" in the android settings... then turn off notifications within the apps directly.

It seems Androids "hide notifications" isn't doing a great job. It keeps the popups hidden, but still turns the lights on.

Turning off notifications within the Apps may also save battery since the App is still basically polling for updates on the network side, just being blocked from displaying them.

I am still testing but I think I nailed it.

Let's be clear.

My problem is not that the LED blinks without any notification.

My problem is that although i read my notification and now have no more any new notification - the led still blinking and i can't stop it.

I like using timely alarm from the play store. Never had that issue.
