There is no way to turn it off.
Buy a pack of Light Dims. Get the "Original" Light Dims which are 50% light blocking. The 100% versions completely block the light just like a square of black electrical tape does. They're about $3 at Fry's.
I use the 50% Light Dims, but before that i simply cut a tiny piece of black tape to cover the majority of the light, but just enough to leave a sliver of red light peeking through at the bottom. I had to focus on it to see any red light while watching TV. I also put Light Dims on my cable DVR and an alarm clock that's too bright. You can put two layers to make a light even darker.
