Unofficial Nokia N73 Torch Light And Decorative Blue Light

I recalled that there was a model of Nokia phone with a bright-white LED as torch light, but are you aware that Nokia N73 also built-in with a LED torch light? Yes, that’s the LED flash of Nokia N73 superb 3.2 mega-pixels camera!

I’ve just realized this unofficial Nokia N73 torch light function after finding a SISX package that called NTorch. Anyway, it’s not necessary installing the NTorch to get Nokia N73 LED flash working as a torch light! Just turn on camera video capturing mode will do. No matter it’s a dark or lightful environment, Nokia N73 built-in LED flash will be lit on while the camera video capturing function turns on.

Unofficially using Nokia N73 built-in bright-white LED flash a torch light.
The reason that I’m not installing the NTorch is because it’s not official to use the LED flash of a camera phone as torch light. No doubt it works (as a torch light), but it’s not a proper ways to do so.

If you really light on that LED flash frequently over a rather long period (to functions as a torch light while walking home at night), not only the cellphone battery will be depleting quicker, it’s also potentially shorten the life of battery and LED flash, or burning the LED. The heat generated by flash LED most likely will hang up the phone or affect the mini-SD card to function properly – that are the common cases when I shooting video with Nokia N73 for few ten minutes.

Besides the unofficial LED flash of torch light, Nokia N73 also comes with an attractive blinking blue LED, next to the secondary camera.

If you’re find it irritating, you may disable the sleep mode function, but don’t try to get a sticker to cover it up permanently! There is a light sensor inside, that’s used to automatically adjusting brightness of Nokia N73 screen display. For example, it looks brighter in a dark room, and turns dimmer while putting it under a light source.

The default factory setting of Nokia N73 turns on its super power-saving mode, where the sleep mode will disable screen-saver and black out the color screen display for optimum energy saving. The blue LED starts blinking when Nokia N73 goes into sleep mode to remind everyone that it’s alive, powered on, battery still working, etc, although the screen looks black-out!. It’s also used to indicate Bluetooth connection is actively established.

Since its reasons of blinking sound reasonable, I don’t have a reason to turn it off. In fact, I like to see the blue light blinking, so that I know the battery is working. It’s also vividly lives up my dark resting room on every romantic night and some occasional, musical gathering!

    hi there,

    I have searched a lot about the N73’s blue led. but no where found. You have given excellent explanation about it. thanks for that.

    I have one question can you answer it?
    I have put my N73 in sleep mode, when the screen turns black the blue led should blink.. but its not … may be it is starting after 15 or 20 min later.

    I have checked the ‘power saver time out’ which is selected as 1 min and
    light time out is selected as 10 secs…

    so what could be the issue? any idea?

    thanks

    Hi Kumar,

    the Light Time-out set to 10secs meant the backlight will be off after the phone idle for 10seconds,

    the Power Saver Time-Out set to 1 minute meant that after the phone idle for an minute, the Power Saver mode will be on. Power Saver mode will not totally black-out the screen but instead displaying the screen saver configured in the Themes setting.

    Sleep mode is the only mode that turn off the screen completely, where the blue LED will be lit.

    Hello Mr. Walker,

    I thank you very much for your reply. That was quite a good knowledge for me.
    I have made a practical experiment for what you said and i found out that…

    after 10 sec, the display dims
    after 1 min the display gets black, however there is a screen saver running on the screen.
    after 10 min or so, even the screen saver vanishes and the screen completely blackens. Immediately the blue light starts blinking.

    If this is the case then my mobile has no issues. its working fine. and I thank you once again a ton for the information which has been so helpful.

    Good day. When the N73 is in sleep mode, the screen will be blank and black out.

    That’s to say, the clock and date should not appears. The date and time display when it’s in power save mode.

    You may follow steps in this article to confirm you’ve not turn off the Sleep mode:

    Worst case: the blue led has gone (back to natural) :-)

    i’m gonna try that on my n73 but, that overheat that you talked about, probably isnt from the LED but from all the other hardware that makes it light up, because a LED is known and popular for that exact reason. it does not make heat. but yes, if you keep it on, like any other light, it will stop working sonner.
