HP Laptop mute led not working

After the first update of the system when I press the mute button the LED does not turn on, I don't know if this is a bug but the same thing happens with LinuxMint and Debian. I
already probe adding the file alsa-base.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/ but it doesn't work, I used this configuration:

options snd_hda_intel model=hp-led
options snd_hda_intel model=hp-gpio-led

Perhaps it is not a fault of the software but of the hardware?

Yeah, also maybe try the kernel 3.16.70 and also the 5.2.4 kernel

Remember to reboot after installing! And to remove the older ones

No, the led works in Windows :slight_smile:

I will try another kernel to see if it works, I hope the Broadcom Wi-Fi driver does not become unstable with kernel 5

I already tried with the kernel 5.2.4 and the led not works :frowning:

Uninstall all newer kernels and install kernel 3.16.70

Then reboot and see if the LED works

I confirm this issue on my hp notebook 15-da0001nk.

Forum rules recommend posting a new topic rather than resurrecting an old discussion
Old Threads/"Necro-Bumping

Please start a new topic and post system information similar to post #1 here

inxi -Fxxxz

and also get ALSA audio information

sudo alsa-info.sh --upload

and post the link to data uploaded to alsa-info

Linux kernel has more patches for HP laptop mute LED problems
need to find audio device ID number to work out which patch is needed
