Ways to fix LG G4 notification LED issue
Solution No.1: Restart your LG G4
You know that restart can be pretty effective when it comes to strange smartphone issues. That is why you should try this option first before you move to the other potential solutions.
Solution No.2: Clock application workaround
This strange LED notification issue was one of the most common problems on previous LG devices and one of the XDA developer forum members shared a potential solution. This is what the member wrote:
“Clear all Notifications
Turn off Screen
(wait for notification light to blink)
Turn on Screen
Go to Clock, disable Alarm
Double tap Status bar / Turn off Screen
(wait for notification light to NOT blink)
Turn on screen and enable your Alarm.
The LED light should no longer blink for no reason.”
Try this workaround because many people reported it fixed the problem.
Solution No.3: Turn the LED off and turn it back on
If you are still experiencing the problem, you should disable LED. To do that, navigate to Settings > Sound & Notification, tap on Notification LED and disable it. Wait for a couple of seconds and turn it back on.
Solution No.4: Remove the battery and put it back in
When you have a problem, you will try all the known tricks, and this is one of the tricks that can fix the issue. Just remove the battery from your device, wait for a couple of seconds and then put it back in. Turn your device on. Hopefully, the LED notification issue will be gone.
Solution No.5: Safe mode
There are tons for awesome apps out there, but some apps are poorly coded, which is why they can be responsible for a wide range of problems. If you noticed any other issue that occurred along with the LED notification problem, perhaps one of the apps is to blame. Boot your device into safe mode, where all third-party apps are disabled. If everything works fine, the app is the problem. You can remove the apps one by one, or you can go for factory data reset.
- Turn off your LG G4 and reboot it
- When you see the LG logo on the screen press and hold the Volume down key and release it when you see the Home screen.
Solution No.6: Factory reset
This may be a bit radical solution but if you are annoyed by the issue and nothing else works, factory reset is the answer. It will wipe out all your personal settings, the apps (only third-party apps), apps settings and your data. Backup your data first, and then do the following:
- Navigate to Settings
- Tap General
- Tap Backup & Reset
- Click on Factory Data reset
- Tap Reset phone
- Tap Erase everything.
