    I have no idea why. I have closed all running apps, restarted etc etc. There are no notifications in my drop down menu. What could it possibly be?

    I had this issue when I first bought mine. I turned off all the notification light options in Settings -> Personalize, then rebooted the phone, then turned the flash options back on again. It worked for me, might work for you too.

    Nothing in the notification bar right? No message or calendar appointment sitting in there?

    Otherwise go to your settings and turn off all LED notification settings then turn them back on.

    Could be a text message. For some reason they get buried on occasion. Happens to me on all four Android phones I have owned.

    Try going into settings in the Messages app and marking all read.

    I will clear the notification, and the light will go out. As soon as the screen locks the light comes on again. I am using LightFlow if that helps.

    Yep, light flow did it for me too.

    However, that's a real flaw in the OS that you can't turn it globally off.

    Weird.

    I don't have light flow or anything, but with every GMAIL email, I get that stupid green notification.. I don't know how to turn it off.
    I went into settings on the phone and unchecked all LED notifications, but I still get a notification with GMAIL. and there is no led setting int he gmail app itself.. It's really annoying.

    Do u have any missed notification apps? I had one called missed call or something like that and I had to uninstall it because the notification light was gonna drive me insane.

    This. Generally you won't get a persistent led unless you installed an app that isn't so great. It can happen but usually either pulling down the notification shade or doing a phone restart will fix it. If neither of these things work and you've determined that it's not being caused by a rogue app then you have a defective device.

    I bought my new HTC One yesterday and this was driving me nuts. It took me some time to realize that the flashing light was notifying me about new gmail messages. After I opened gmail and then closed it, the flashing finally stopped. Phew.

    I went into settings - >applications->all applications (at the top you can swipe over)->Gmail and then uncheck "Show notifications." hopefully that will fix it. Good God, that was driving me insane, too.

    Hi.
    I was having exactly the same problem, and it was really peeing me off! After reading a lot of what other people had posted about this problem, I put two & two together, and finally discovered there was an email in my Email Outbox that kept failing to send for some unknown reason. Once I deleted it from the Outbox folder, the green LED ceased blinking and it was a case of 'problem solved'.
    Regards,
    Matthew.

    I was having the same problem on a Galaxy S4. A restart fixed it temporarily. However the permanent solution was a little sneakier. I use a non-standard messaging app. What I found was after receiving a text, the green light would flash when the screen was off. I checked the pre-installed messaging app, and it had been reset (due to the last major update) and didn't know it was no longer the default app for messaging, so it's notifications were still active.

    So I recommend going through any pre-installed apps that you don't use, and making sure they know they aren't your default app, or turning off their notifications either via the system menu or their own settings.
