Problem 1

One of the issues is that the notification LED does not light up at all. Here are the things you can do to solve the problem.

  • Look for Notification LED and tap on the Switch if it is Off.
  • Now select the notifications for which you want the LED to flash.

This will activate the LED lights for notifications and it will flash for the applications you have selected.

Solution 2

When it comes to smartphones, a restart can fix tons of issues, so it is something you should try when the problem like this occurs.

Solution 3

If the notification LED is already On or if it still does not work then there may be a problem with the LED and it may have to be changed. If your phone is under warranty then take it to the LG store or to your carrier.

 

Problem 2:

Another problem that has been noticed is that the notification LED fails to light up at times to notify you of incoming messages. The problem occurs for the incoming messages of third party apps.

Solution 1

If this is a problem that has come up all of a sudden and not after you downloaded an app, then restart your device. A restart fixes most of the devices issues and brings it back to working mode.

Solution 2

The LED notification in the LG G5 is configured for the default apps and you may have to check the settings to ensure that it is switched on for the third party app you are using. To do so follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on the Sound tab
  • Tap on Notification LED
  • Now check the settings and make sure that the third party apps are selected so that the phone can notify you when a message comes in.

This will make sure that the notification LED works for all the apps that you want.

Solution 3

If this did not work then there may be a device specific problem and since it is being reported by a few people there may be a glitch which may be fixed with future updates. So as a workaround, you can use an app called Light Flow Lite. This app is available on the Google Play Store. You will have better control over the LED notifications of your phone after installing this app.

  1. Many top free games keep recording audio when your phone is dark. And for this reason, the blue light keeps blinking. So, check the apps that are running.

  2. Another annoying issue, is that the notification led blinks … but no notifications are shown … after a restart you may find them (appstore update, and so on …) … weird

  3. If you’re looking for an LED notification in your Microsoft exchange email download Microsoft Outlook email app and install it. You will get a blue LED notification every few seconds until you look at your email
