I have the S5 and installed a new update (my daughter did also) my back ground is now white it was black....My daughter's stayed black...how do i either uninstall the new upgrade or get the back ground back to black.
I'm trying to test what a black background would look like on my phone. How do I make the background black just to test what it would look like? I want to return to my current wallpaper easily if I don't like it.
I'm using the reg sms app, and I know how to change the background and bubbles for ALL my convos...is there a way to change the background for INDIVIDUAL conversations... IE : put a pic of my gf as our background in the convo...
When I first got my SGS2 I loved the fact that when I went to a different screen the background would move, being in landscape mode. Now I can't set my background to landscape. Is there any way to make it so I can?
I am using Advanced Task Killer which I'm finding really useful. I have an ignore list set and it kills the apps that aren't being used regularly. However, I'm wondering why these apps keep restarting again. The sort of things that keep restarting are Gallery, Messaging, Yahoo! Messenger, Email, Skype, Maps, etc. I'm sure that I'm signed out on all of these apps and have the settings set such that they shouldn't keep restarting/synching. Are there any apps similar to 'msconfig' in Windows where you can tick which things you want to start up and what you don't?
Well the day after I got my 5.0 update on my s5. I noticed that my gallery was running. (according to the task bar), so I stopped it. I go back on it a few seconds later and it is running again. How do I stop this!!!
I opened the Messaging from one of the shortcuts at the bottom.I checked my message. I clicked the back button twice to reach my home screen.I can see that my Active applications shows that Messaging is still running?I had to "Exit" from Messaging through that.My thought was, when I hit the back button frmo the Messaging screen, it should close/exit that from the background (i.e.) it should not list in the Active Applications window?
Since I allowed an update on my phone, my screen/background is continuously coming on by itself and this drains my battery. The screen used to only come on when I pressed the power button. I have my display settings set so the screen is supposed to cut off after 15 seconds of inactivity.
approximately every 4 or 5 days my phone will just freeze, usually on a black screen.Initially I removed the battery to re-boot, however the last couple of times I managed to get it to reboot with a long power button push. This latest time it was frozen on the home screen but would not respond to anything other than re-boot
I just purchase my sg2 phone yesterday. Unfortunately, my brother has used my phone last night and register the Samsung account in it by using his email or id. When I tried to change the account, it cannot be done cause I have to do the factory reset in privacy setting (which will erase all my personal info and downloaded applications). I don't want that to happen as well. Plus, my my brother can't even remember what the password he has used for the Samsung account I'm very pissed off now that my Samsung account belong to him and the fact that I can't do the factory reset because of him. I'll mention again, he forgot the password he used for MY SAMSUNG ACCOUNT IN MY SG2.
This morning I left my phone in my bootbag. Came back and noticed there was a small crack not in the cover itself but the actual screen. Now the screen is black, doesn't seem like an liquid has spilt like when a screen breaks (But then what do I know?!).I got a friend to phone it, it still rings.. vibrates, the two lights either side of the button still light up.. does what it usually should. But the screen itself remains black. I plugged it into Kies via USB in the hope I could create a backup and order a new phone. But because it has a keylock on the home screen. I need to unlock that in order for Kies to connect.Is there any other way at all I can remove the sufficient data? E.g. Photo's, Videos.. as there's alot of sentimental things on there. I should really learn to start backing things up. But its always too late to say that.
Periodically I go to turn the display on via the power button and the screen is either completely black (powered off) or I only see a blue led light flash in the indicator area. My only way to power on the phone is to pull the battery, replace and power back on.
I'm not sure if this is a problem with my iPod, or just the way it's supposed to work.
It's an iPod, not an iPhone, but I'm using it to learn more about how the iPhone works.
I've got what I think is a second generation iPod (chrome back plate, and no camera).
Version: 4.2.1 (8C148)
I set the "wallpaper" to the same default background as I have in my iPhone - the gray colored background with bubbles all over.
On the iPhone, this works fine.
On the iPad, the background remains black.
Is there a different setting I need to use? I think I've done everything right, and even reset the iPod to "new", but the background behind all my apps is still a solid black color.
Also, I know there's no phone, no camera, and no multitasking, but will this device function pretty much the same as an iPhone 3GS? Will I be able to install the same Wi-Fi utilities such as Skype and Viber?
since i update my phone to ICS 4.0.4 i experience camera issues. When in camera or video mode the screen is black (cant see nothing). But it works. If i take shot it flicker for split of second and shows image taken for that spit of second then goes back to black screen.
before ICS update it was on gingerbread. I tried with KIES but phone developed a fault. It wasn't allowing me to pass "Samsung Galaxy SII" screen. I went to local shop and they sort it out. So i don't know how they did it. Two days later i find that camera is faulty.
When I try to load the game "0.01 seconds pro", the screen turns black and I can hear only sound, and then after a few seconds the game crashes.. I tried updating, reinstalling, turning the device off and on.. but nothing works.
My Galaxy S2 has started to add random black pictures to my gallery. I cannot browse them from the outside - only from the gallery application. They have no size or resolution and they do not show up in the camera application. They appear to be related to pictures in the gallery (by name). how they appear and what I can do to get rid of them.
I wasn't sure how to describe the problem in the title, but the problem is since I closed the camera app half of the black soft keys background is always showing on the home screen and the lock screen. Like this:
I have tried to turn on and off the phone and so on. I know I can try a factory reset
A friend of mine has another brand Android and all of his basic phone screens have a black background, which I find more appealing than the dark blue on the BIONIC. I've looked all around the settings areas and cannot locate a place to change the colors.I am not speaking about the wallpaper. But the actual window background in the stock programs which come on the BIONIC.
I have noticed an issue with the Galaxy S5 that apparently only occurs with the Verizon variant. I work for a place called Wireless Advocates, we are the cell phone kiosk inside of Costco. I'm asking about this because I've had three customers come in to ask about this background data issue.
I'm not sure what triggers this issue but when I try opening up google play I get the "Background Data Disabled : Google Play Store Needs background data to be Enabled" error. It then gives you the ability to either quit or enable the data. If you press enable it takes you to the account screen in settings.
When I go to Data usage the option to "restrict background data" is greyed out. You can't even select it and it isn't checkmarked either. Just to clarify, accessing the internet and other things on the phone work perfectly fine. It's just the use of Google Play that is having issues. I called Samsung customer care and they aren't aware of this issue at all. Also note that force stopping google play, play services, removing the google accounts and adding them back and rebooting the phone haven't solved it. After the reboot the phone will appear fine and then a box that says "Restricting background data".
i just tried to check my emails on my phone, as i reached for it and slid the screen up everything scrambled with a yellow then blue then total black image of my background, and now the phone screen will not turn on at all. My keyboard still lights up and my green light is still blinking but i can not see anything on my screen.
i unlocked my screen and opened up the sms app. The screen went totally black and Android running in the back ground. The phone vibrates when i touch the screen but no respons from the screen. I booted it with vol+power button, did not work. I ran the sony connect application on my pc and got the phone reset and upgraded my software.
Yesterday I allowed the Motorola update on my Razr Maxx & now I wish I could undo it. When I go into "Phone", "Voicemail", "Text", etc. the background is black with white font (or in the case of Text, the background is dark blue with grey lettering). I am unable to read light colored font against a dark background so am having a terrible time with this update. Is there a way to change the color of the background and make the font black? I've tried changing the Display, Wallpaper, etc but that has no effect on the default background colors of the apps.
