WI-FI turns off by itself

WI-FI turns off by itself


My new XZ2 Compact has started to turn Wi-Fi off by itself & when I try to turn it back on I can't

Tapping the Wi-Fi icon in the task bar does nothing 

Going to settings & Network & Internet doesn't help either

When I try to activate the slider it won't slide across but always returns to the Off position 

The only solution is to restart the phone 

Any fixes for this please?

Hi @ManataJJ;


Try restarting the phone in Safe Mode and use it for some time to see if the same thing happens, if not probably it's a third party app that is causing the problem and you need to find what.

Settings > About phone tap 7 times and you enter in deloper mode.

Then Settings > System > Developer options and check there if there is a setting causing this issue
