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.

My Sony DSCW320S camera has digital information (text etc) on the screen when I am trying to take pictures - how do I get rid of it, so that I can just see the things I want to take a picture of?


I don't have this exact model, but try pressing the DISP button. It should toggle you through a few different modes of data and picture assisting modes and then get to a no overlay mode.

If your model is different you can try looking for viewfinder options in the menu as well.

Hope this helped.

Won't open the overlay screen


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

A black line on the top and bottom


In your Recording Menu, check that the Disp. Overlay is turned Off. The lines are showing the portion of your image that will be cropped if you print a 4 x 6 photo (3:2 Guide).
