What does screen overlay detected mean with android phone?


Step one: "Screen overlay detected" fix

Find you what apps have permission to draw over the screen. On a non-Samsung smartphone, follow these steps:
  • Open the Settings
  • Tap the magnifying glass at the top right
  • Enter the search term "draw"
  • Tap Draw over other apps
  • Alternative route: Apps> [gear icon]> Draw over other apps
For Samsung users:
  • Open the Settings
  • Then Applications > Application manager
  • Press on More > Apps that can appear on top

Step two

You will find yourself in front of a list of apps that have permission to use floating buttons or other screen overlays. Now you need to identify the problem app and temporarily deny it permission to draw over the screen. Here is are some pointers on how to identify the app that's causing trouble:
  • Do you see an app bubble on your screen? If do, this app is almost certainly the cause. Either you hide the app bubble or disable the app in the list
  • Do you have an app installed that changes the colors on the display or adjusts the brightness?
  • Reportedly, Clean Master can be a trouble maker. If you see Clean Master in the list, disable it
  • If there's no obvious cause, disable everything

Step three

Now you can try launching the app again, and it should request permissions without the "Display overlay detected" error getting in the way.
For Samsung users: We have also received a report that suggests the one-handed keyboard setting could be the root cause. Deactivate it by going to Settings> Advanced features > One-handed operation.

Step four: reactivate screen overlays

In order for the app(s) that you have disabled in step two to work again, you need to re-enable its overlay permissions. If you turned off all apps, it might be worth considering only reactivating those apps that you actually use.
This is a rather inelegant workaround, but it's the best we have until Google makes the necessary changes to prevent app overlays from interfering with permission dialogues.
Has this guide helped? If you are still experiencing the error after following our guide, leave a comment, so we can try and address the problem.

Won't open the overlay screen


You must have a heading sensor input for radar/chart overlay. (i.e. PG500)

Line across middle of screen and series of lines below that overlaying whats active on the monitor. It's a new 23 inch acer


Your screen is made up of layers in which gas is trapped. whenever any side of the screen gets cracked it may not be visible with naked eye. The gas gets released and you get a horizontal straight line blue or black. Initially it starts with a thin line and as the gas releases it keeps on getting broader. If your acer is on warranty try to replace it or else you will have to replace it out of your own pocket.

I have a massive colorbar overlaying the middle of my screen


I have the exact same problem. Started out of the blue one day and then went away about 3 hours later. Now it's back again. I "chatted" with Gateway tech support and they told me that there is no problem with this monitor and that I was out of luck. I'm over the 1 year warranty so I guess I'm S.O.L. $1600 products should not just fail after 16 months.

Distorted white lines running across screen


Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on
it will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there.
if not they are likely a cable or video card.
if they are still there have a tech evaluate the monitor.
