How does Jiofi red light blinking occur?

As we said about the continuous blinking of the red light (the red led light in the middle) continuously non stop is an issue that should be taken seriously. Let me explain why is it happening. This happens because of device software malfunctioning due to an interception of its process by the user or by any circuit errors. Like, suppose the user has removed the battery while it was booting up. Then the process may end up failing the bootup process, and when you start the device afterward, the processor may return errors. That’s how the light keeps blinking.
