My HTC One's screen is timing out after about 5 seconds. By timeout, I mean going black and I have to unlock the phone to get back to where I was.
Initially, I removed Battery Doctor and I thought this solved the problem, but the issue it returned. Occasionally, usually after I've uninstalled something, it goes back to around 15 seconds, leading me to believe I solved the issue, but then issue returns.
I've gone through the following motions:
Settings > Security > Lock phone after - set to 3 minutes
Settings > Display, gestures & buttons is > Sleep - set to 15 seconds.
Over the weekend I restored my phone completely, which appeared to work at first, but now it's back to timing out abruptly.
As I've typed out this message, it was constantly timing out, then in the middle it did stay awake several times for about 5 seconds, then dimmed, but still stayed on for around 10 more seconds before blacking out.
I have the screen timeout set to 1 min which works fine until I use the phone. When using the phone the screen times out (and locks) in about 5 seconds. This is a real pain when using voicemail etc and you need to interact with the keypad.
Has anyone else had this issue or knows a fix? I want my screen timeout to be 2 minutes. When i go to the Display options I unclick the button for 30 seconds, click 2 minutes, then exit. A little while later the screen goes off and I go back to the Display settings and it is back at 30 seconds again. It does not seem to go to the value I want but goes back to 30 seconds each time.size limitation on email on a Verizon Droid?
is there a way to set screen timeouts to specific apps? For instance, when running navigation, can the screen time out be set to never timeout just for that app? I only want the screen to stay lite for certain apps.
I found that when my WiFi is on, when screen is off due to screen timeout, when I try to open screen again by pressing menu button or power button, nothing happened, I need to switch the mobile on again by pressing power button long press (not normal press to open as usual if you switched off manually)
someone told me because mobile is duos, may be you have only two gateway, when WiFi is one with access of data plan of two Sim cards, may be doing conflict, actually last week I switch data plan access between two Sims last week and I think this problem came with this action, I delete APN access points from one of two Sims but it didn't solve this problem.
I have a galaxy note 2 which I have found excellent up to now.....
Since yesterday my screen timeout it's not working correctly. Whatever I set it to, usually 30 seconds, whenever I go back to my home screen and back into the settings it is changing itself back to 10 minutes.
I've tried disabling tasker, lux and widgetlocker but I cannot get the timeout to stick on 30 seconds.
I have noticed that after the last update, my touch screen doesn't work for a few seconds on random occasions and then works again after about 3 or 4 seconds. when I'm reading a book and they're about to reveal the mystery or enthusiastically playing a game and it stops working, I get increasingly frustrated that I can't turn the page or that I lost the game because during the last few seconds my touchscreen decided to temporarily stop working.. I just want to make sure there's not something wrong internally.
I posted this in the Support and Troubleshooting forum but didn't get any replies, so I thought I'd post it in the main forum.Hopefully some of you guys/gals/aliens (illegal or not, I don't mind) can help me out with this one.
I was messaging around today and found where to shut of the screen while charging, but I wanted to turn it back on and can't find where it is? Also before the update I could have sworn there was an option on the screen timeout to set it to never. Now I don't have that option.
I finally had a chance to try the Google Maps turn by turn navigation, and i love it, but i got one problem.
To save on battery, i keep my phone display timeout to 2 minutes. The problem im running into is when the screen times out, it kills the navi and i gotta restart it....very annoying and sucks if a turn is coming up
Does anyone know a way to keep the screen from timing out while either plugged in, or in the Maps app?
I saw a while ago on here an App to toggle screen timeout but whilst screen was on it would dim if not using which I like the idea of. I cannot remember what it was called can anybody help? At the moment I am using 'Toggle Screen Timout' which is great but does not dim.
I've always had my screen timeout set at 30 seconds and I haven't installed any app recently that I would think messes with this setting, but twice now in the last two days my screen timeout has gone to "never."
I did a search but found no solutions to my problem. My screen timeout changes on its own. I usually set it for 30 seconds or 1 minute. Occasionally I notice about 2-3 times a week that the screen never shuts off and when I check my settings it is set at never. Any idea why its doing this?
My upgrade to 2.2 went very smooth. I do not have many of the issues people are talking about. I have one minor issue. I have my screen timeout set to 1 minute. About 3 to 4 times a day the setting changes all by itself to 15 seconds. Has anyone else had this problem? Or any suggestions on how to keep it set at one minute?
This is going to seem like a straightforward issue, however when listening to music/podcasts the sound will cut out when the screen times out. Is it supposed to do this as I would have thought the screen could timeout to preserve battery whilst music was playing?
I'm having a problem with my screen timeout - nomatter what I set it to, it soon afterwards resets back to 30 seconds. I've tried 2 minutes, 10 minutes etc. and it might work immediately, but not long afterwards it gets reset.
The only thing I had running that I thought might possibly affect it was timeriffic, but I've deactivated that now and its still happening.
And yes, I know that apps like screenmodewidget and Screebl can be used to work around the problem, but I'd rather fix it!
Just setting up the display profiles on my phone....does anyone know how to change the screen time out for different scenes.....eg when I'm using my phone normally I want the display to timeout and lock etc, but when the phone is on charge at work or in the car I never want it to timeout.
Changing the timeout setting seems to apply for all profiles.
I have a UK 3 Hero and am running Screebl. I set the screen timeout for a minute but it keeps reverting back to 15 secs. I am changing the time in the phone's settings and Screebl's, but it keeps changing back.
So I have my Screen timeout set the way that I want it (10 minutes) and it works fine except for when I'm on a call. The screen will go blankafter just a few second, even if I have the keypad on display and using voice menus and such.
Is there a way to keep that display going when I'm on a call - no timeout or long timeout?
Went through the settings and cant find out any ways to turn screen timeout off. Mainly I dont want a few apps to time out when I use them, like Pandora. Went through a few apps and haven't found one that really works yet.
I set my screen time out to 30 seconds and..it's been 30 seconds my screen is not timing out. This can be REALLY annoying when I forget to push the power button and just put the phone in my pocket and the battery drains.
I called verizon about this yesterday they had me turn my phone off and back on and then it did time out. Today I tried the same thing and it's not timing out..
The phone is brand new, only 3 days old has not been dropped or anything.
I had a quick question about the AMOLED Screen the Incredible uses. I noticed that if you have for example white text on a black background for an extended period of time and go to a full black screen you can still see the ghosting of the text like it has been temporarily burned into the screen. It goes away after a couple of seconds. But I'm worried a display on for too long could result in a more permanent burn. Could this be a case of burning or is it just the way the screen refreshes? As I am not too familiar with the AMOLED Screen. Hopefully some of you more screen technology savy people may know what's going on. And hopefully this will be helpful to others as I couldn't find any other thread relating to this. Thank you in advance.
