How To Turn Off Nokia N73 Blue Light LED

How to turn off or switch off the Nokia N73 blinking blue light LED?
I am sure that almost every Nokia N73 owner has been asking a same question on the first day getting the N73. Definitely, I am one this group of people!

In fact, the answer is in the Nokia N73 user guide, but there are just many “geek” not bother to read the manual.
It’s just a simple guide or tips to turn off the irritated blinking blue light.

Nokia N-Series smartphone keypad functions. This is a screen-shot of Nokia N73 keypad that is running on Symbian OS S60 3rd Edition user interface.

Press the menu key (label as A), Tools, Settings, Phone, Display, and turn off the Sleep mode setting. That’s all to get rid off the N73 blinking blue light!

But, beware of the consequence by switching off N73 blue light!

According to N73 user guide, the blinking blue light used to inform everyone (including its owner) that it’s not “death”, but is in the deep sleep mode to save battery power reserves!

By default, N73 factory setting turns on the sleep function, which will black out N73 screen display to achieve optimum battery power saving mode.

So, the N73 blinking blue light is served as a power indicator. If you see the blue blinking while the screen looks blank and black, it means N73 is still power on. Without that blue light, no one could tell that N73 is power on, until any key is pressed to light on the screen.

As the screen is lit on and screen saver is playing to protect the screen from burning, the battery power reserve will depleting at faster rate and in turn shorten the battery life as well.

If you like to show off a customized slide-show screen saver, or irritated by the siren alike blinking blue LED, just turn off the N73 sleep function!

Anyway, I find that the N73 blue light LED is cool like a blinking star at night! And also its great power saving sleep function!

P/S: The N73 blinking blue led is also indicating Bluetooth availability!

    Antony, looks like your Nokia N73 or the battery is causing the problem. If your friend mind to swap the battery for testing, that will be good, or you might need to get the reseller help.

    heyy can u tell me how to put the slide show screen saver on with the back light…….. cos every time my slideshow starts the screen is very dark hence i cant see any slideshow

  6. Walker 12-08-07@23:42

    Hi sherwin, I think it’s neither possible nor pratical to totally turn of the light time-out and power saver time-out features. Though, it’s possible to turn off the sleep mode feature (which I believe you do) and get the screen saver shown in a dim display (for power saving).
