Blue Yeti Mute Flashing, Yet Not Muting

Alright so Blue's website is a little useless at the moment and I can't call them at the present time so I figured I would come here.
I have a Blue Yeti, and the mute button just doesn't work at all. Originally the physical button was unresponsive, and would have to press it a number of times to mute/unmute...

Today I noticed when talking to someone that they could hear every noise on my end, even with the mute button pressed and the light flashing red. :/

This is totally a hardware issue and not something simple isn't it?

Both?

Yes, the microphone is supposed to mute when you push the button and yes, it does flash when it's in mute. Mute Failure may be you're recording from the laptop built-in microphone.

Do the scratch test. Scratch each microphone announcing as you go.
