Why is there an led light shining through the phone speaker slot?

My phone has an led light shining through the phone speaker slot on the front. It has nothing to do with the screen or the rear leds for the phone's camera. It never shuts off and is on whether the phone is on or off.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi,

Apparently Moto G3s (plus other Moto models) do have a LED behind the speaker grill.

It supposedly cannot be enabled, but it can if the phone has been rooted.

There is this link to a poor audio You Tube video which shows one app (of a few apps) that have been developed to utilize it as a notification tool for when the screen is not working.

There are also reports of the LED turning on after the phone (non rooted) has been upgraded to Android Marshmallow, but apparently it is random, the reason for it is unknown and it cannot be turned off.

I do not know if this will work but if it bothers you, you could try doing a backup of your phone and then performing a hard reset to see if it clears the problem and then restore your phone using the backup you made.

Previous answer is not any answer. My screen works fine, my battery is charged, my phone already has marshmallow, it is not due to any notifications, rebooting does not solve, it just came on out of nowhere, endless searches provides no answer. You gotta wonder....

I have heard of no answer yet. My wife's phone fixed itself back in the summer, but it came back on a week ago, but now it's off again. She has experienced no adverse effects and the phone works normally. We'll live with it until she gets her next phone ... ;-)

The best things will be if you can break this led light somehow and see what happen

Try draining down your phone charge to 0.0% .. and plug the charger.. may be LED will get turned off after a bit.
