Seeing an image flash on my screen


Nov 7, 2009
For about 2 weeks now I have noticed mostly when I press the side power button a quick image on my screen what looks like a cable motioning to be inserted into my phone. Its so quick that i am guessing thats what it is. And does not matter how much battery life I have left. I have searched the settings but cant figure this out. I would like to turn that “feature” off. Any suggestions?
Impossible - the image is gone in a blink of an eye.

Like the other members, I've never heard of this issue. There might be a way to capture the image you speak of by means of a screen recorder app.



You can also try booting your Android into safe mode and see if the problem persists. If it doesn't its most likely do to a user app that was recently installed.
