Screen Flashing with Moto Display

2015-10-04, 15:12 PM

When my phone just about to display the time and notifications, all but the top inch or so will flash white.  It does it again as soon as the notification fades away.  This started with the 5.1 update on Verizon.  I have tried deselecting all apps for notifications so it would just be the clock.  The only thing that makes it stop is to use the Android Active Display instead of the Moto Display, which is disappointing.  My wife has the same phone, but does not have the issue.  It's super annoying as it just keeps flashing when it's face up on a desk or table.



Anyone with a suggestion?  All I can think of is to factory reset and start all over.  sad

Solved! See the solution

Do an FDR, but this way



  • FDR without backup & restore on

  • Restart several times before signing into Google etc.

  • Then sign in & set up the basics like email etc.

  • Add your apps back avoiding ones not updated for many months (As they are probably not updated to work properly with ART)

Yep, it's the same issue.  Thanks.  Not sure why I couldn't find that one when I first searched.  Perhaps b/c I used "flash" instead of "flicker."

It is interesting that clear cache has fixed the issue for you at least for now. Several other users and I had cracking audio issue, we were able to fix that issue by turn off/on audio effect. It appears that this issue is video side of setting problem (video flickering vs. audio cracking: There is a very strange similarity between two issues: Audio cracking only happens from silent to sound, then it becomes normal. Here video flickering only happens from blank to notification). So far, I have not seen anyone pin point to which setting is causing this issue. So the fix has been clear cache or factory reset. (Maybe someone with this issue can go to developer options to play some GPU and/or drawing settings to see if any setting can eliminate this issue)
