S8 LED not working after update


Hi, thanks for the message. All seems to be working now after this afternoon's android update. 

I can't get it to work on WhatsApp messages but I think that is down to settings. WhatsApp appears to have more settings than other apps?! 


You all might find this really stupid or very helpful, but I have been reading all over the web to find the cause of the LED light not working. I've tried the partition wipe, app cache wipes and others, but just a moment ago I was screwing around with the display settings, changing from adaptive to amoled and whatever... underneath the smart stay option, I see LED Indicator and it's selected to off. I set it to on and did a notification preview in my txt app and the LED works now. Hope this helps someone!

Anyone else got this issue with the latest update? I have tried everthing mentioned in this thread but so far nothing seems to work.  No LED clock or anything on the case.

Usually Led don't work then switched on power saving mode.

I rang Samsung support. They talked me through things to do but non of it worked so they advised me to return it to the seller.This I did and got a full refund. I have now got one that works fine.
