Red light on x230

Hey,

lately I noticed that I don't have red light on my x230(inside the thinkpad logo). How is that possible?

Regards Smiley Happy

ThinkPad X220/t and X230/t doesn't have LED indicators light on the ThinkPad logo.

Thanks. I can see there kind of white light. It looks like Lenovo forgot to put there red LED.

I'll do it in the evening because only then I can see it. In my country evening begins for 8 hours. Thanks

This is how it looks like. I thought it can only be seen in dark but I was wrong.

That's odd, don't have that on my x131e, but perhaps its the backlight illuminating it?

Yes it is. When I dim display it disappears. But looks strange anyway.

Re: Red light on x230

Not sure. Also the normal LED on thinkpad lid is a red dot that appears on top of i. Anyway the ThinkPad logo on X2x0 series right now doesnt have a LED. The X230s will have one but that is not released yet.

Re: Red light on x230

Thats normal for the 12" X-series, as there is a little hole in the magnesium cover, where backlight can shine through. This was also discussed in the German thinkPad-forum.de, and there was a member with a X61 with a hole in the magnesium cover at the same postion.
