    MY optical output (red light) is on, and it shouldn't be. Anyone know how to turn it off so i can use my speakers??

    Thanks

    Have you tried sticking a plug in the jack and wiggling it? Sometimes the contacts get stuck or bent.

    Where exactly is that red light and how did you turn it on in the first place?

    It comes from the headphone jack. It should automatically sense what output mode it should be using, but it occasionally gets stuck with the optical on...that's the red light you'd see.
