    I have the same problem. I left the phone on my desk and went to lunch. after I came back the phone was not working. I could not even turn it on. I've been using this phone for 2 months only.

    can you please help.

    only thing that has changed on my phone recently was the new version of gmail app. would this apply to any of the above posters as well?

Same here. the phone has not had any major problems for 10 months. I was on the phone when there were two separate incoming calls. I hang up and call the first one. Hang up once again, open the phone book to make a new call. The phone got stuck in the phone book, backlight became very strong. It was like this for 5-10 seconds, until i took the battery out. Now it won't "boot". The backlight, notification light and the ******** indicate that the phone turns on, but it doesn't continue from there.

    has everyone installed the latest gmail app, could that be the problem?

    or some other software?

Same problem here, sent it for repairs. got reply that "repair is not possible" so they sent me replacement. Got it today. Brand new and DOA. EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM - wouldn't turn on, just light, vibration and backlight then turns back off. It looks like Nokia QA is a joke. So I have to send it back to the service center. What a hassle...

    update: I got the replacement phone to boot. All I did was charge it with original Nokia charger instead of some aftermarket one I have been using before. Now the phone works. Go figure.

Panasonic KX-T7633 Notification Light will not turn off

The red light is MESSAGE WAITING. It is not necessarily VM notification. Press the MESSAGE button and look at the display. One of the soft keys will let you CLEAR the message and it will tell you where it came from. It's set by anybody calling your phone, and randomly, it is set by dialing your extension plus "4". Oops. It's a Pana mystery :-)
