Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd Gen): Mute Button Light Stays On

The Mute Button Light on my Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd Gen) Stays On all the time. I can mute or unmute audio fine, but the light stays on. Small issue I know, but I'd like to be able to turn it off. It happened before, and someone pointed to a note somewhere that specified a keystroke combination to turn it off, but I can't remember the keystroke. Note: It wasn't a driver issue or any of the other solutions people post regarding this issue, just a simple keystroke that's laid out ... somewhere ... I can't find it in the user guide. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi!

 

Thanks for posting in the Community,

 

In 3rd Gen X1 Carbon, sound can be muted by pressing Fn+F1 / F1, while in 1st Gen, it can be muted by pressing the mute button above the keyboard (See attached photo). If it's still the same, download the Hotkey Features Integration below, and check for any changes,

1st Gen

(Choose Operating System>Expand Software and Utilities)

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards,

Re: Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd Gen): Mute Button Light Stays On

We can see that you're looking for a keystrokes that will make the mute button and the indicator to function as it should. There are two mute buttons in the keyboard. One is for the speaker, and the other is for the Microphone. The Fn+F1 / F1 key is the only key combination to mute / unmute. Installing the Hotkey Integration also works for other users that experience the same issue with a different model in this thread,

So it would be best as well to install it in the link below, and check if it'll work afterwards,
