Weird sensor glowing red

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – I checked my phone for the green led blinking email notifier when I spotted a very faint constant red glow coming from above the screen (which was dark because it wasn't turned on yet) but the red glow was to the left of where the notification led is. It was glowing from either the ambient light sensor or the proximity sensor. I turned the phone on and the glow was still there, also the screen brightness was at maximum despite the fact that the room was dark. Although the screen was fully lit, the bottom keys ( menu, home, back, search ) were not lit. Automatic brightness was still che (HowTos)
