    Hello all,

    lately I recognized a yellow light inside my MacBook Pro. Does somebody know, what it is? I have no problems with my notebook, just wanted to know what it indicated. :)

    It looks like this: http://twitpic.com/4k1eo (Not my photo)

    Greetings

    Does is appear when the keyboard backlight is on? That's the only explanation I can think of. If the backlight is off and the yellow light is still there, I have no idea what it is! :confused:

    The colour looks like the camera light at the top of the screen (in the centre) I can't think of anything else.

    No, it also appears when backlight is off.

    The light is located somewhere between the two fans. (See image)

    I uploaded 2 photos of that light visible between the 'grills' at the back.

    Just looked at the grill on mine and didn't see any yellow light, just the keyboard one. I don't recall any LEDs when opening it up either.

    Remove the bottom and see if you can see exactly where it is
