I'm creating this new thread as a sort of continuation from this one: SMS Tone Randomly Changing on account of it veering off topic.
So I've been playing with my new (used) Pre 2 for the past few days, patching it up and all, when I noticed that my notification light wasn't blinking for notifications. Then I noticed it wasn't blinking at all. Then I noticed that it had simply stopped turning on.
I doctored it, and still no dice. No light. Ever.
Something I noticed about it before the light went dead, however, may be of interest. The notification bar, I think, is made up of 3 lights. They blink smoothly from left to right or right to left when you swipe across the gesture area. When I had received my phone, I noticed that the light already looked awkward. Only the left and right lights were lighting, and there was a gap in between. I compared it to my old pre+, which didn't have a gap and had much smoother "swipe animations." Is it possible the notification light was already damaged? Has anyone else had this issue?
The guy at Palm Support offered to fix my device for free, but I'd be device-less for a week or two.
I was just curious to see if anyone else's notification light stopped working, and/or if they were able to fix it.
