Re: black Screen every 10 seconds

Hi @aurore56530, welcome to the community.

 

What do you have your sleep timer set to under Settings > Display?

 

If that is set correctly, do you experience the same issue in safe mode?

Re: black Screen every 10 seconds

Hi @aurore56530,

 

I'm sorry to hear that, have you made sure that your handset is completely up to date with its software?

 

You can check by going into the settings > About phone > Software update

 

If the device is up to date, are you by chance using any cover over the handset and if you are what happens with the cover removed?

 

Please let me know.

Re: black Screen every 10 seconds

Thanks for the info.

 

This could be a software problem, you may be able to resolve it with running a software repair on the device. However, I do suggest backing up the device first.

 

I have supplied some links below for you to follow through.

Let me know how you get on.
