I will check tomorrow morning when I leave for work, but I am able to see the CELs for other "alerts" when I scroll through the menus. Does that count? In any case, I'll take a look.

When I did bring up that concern with Powerchip, they did confirm that a prior employee used to do that, but they are no longer employed. Something about how someone from Powerchip left the company to make his own company or something and "hacking" the flash to just turn off the light. I'm not exactly sure, I don't remember. Maybe someone from Powerchip can chime in.
