BB 8900 - Blue LED won't turn off


Active Member
just got a 8900 and the blue light wont turn off even when the bb is off.
I have reinstalled software.(
removed battery etc etc

Any other suggestions - its really annoying.

thank you in advance,.

Sounds like a hardware problem - is it a dimmish blue, rather than the bright blue of the Bluetooth?

A few people have had this problem on the crackberry forum and have had to get their 8900 exchanged

It is dim blue.
Hope it is not unfixable.
bought the 8900 2nd hand. Branded Tmobile. Can i contact tmobile direct.

If you bought it second hand then TMobile will not do anything for you.

Have you tried disabling the LED functions completely and see if it stops then. I switched the LED notifications off within 5 mins of getting my BB - drove me crazy :D

It's probably just a loose wire, or a short somewhere.

I would say your best bet is to find an independent phone store who unlock phones/sell second hand ones etc and see if they can fix it for you. Ask around for recommendations for a reliable one.
