I am unable to turn off screen overlay. I tried doing so in app settings by turning off all permission. It is still on, how do I remove it. ZTE 798BLi

Hope this help.
1. From your home page go to Main Settings by pulling down the Notification Bar and clicking on the Settings icon at the top right of the screen. (it's gear shaped)
2. Scroll down the Settings menu, and click on Applications under the Phone section about two thirds down the page.
3. At the top of this new menu click on "Applications Manager".
4. In the top right corner of the Applications Manager menu click on "More"
5. Now a click on "Draw over Other Applications"
6. Scroll down this menu and find the offending application, in this example "Facebook"
7. Click on the button to the right of your offending application to deselect it.
8. Close out of the Settings menus.

NOTE: Alternately, deselect all the applications under step 8 except those you know pop up over other applications such as messaging, for example.

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.

Screen is damged can it be repaired& how much wil it cost

That's so unfortunate! And because the damage is external and caused by what could be termed as 'improper usage', you will probably have to foot the cost for repairs yourself because warranty likely won't cover it.

Repairing screens, on research, seems to be a tricky business due to the layers they're made up of. I don't know specifically where you could get the repair done, but I suspect an entire touch screen replacement would be necessary. I goggled it and, I assume because the phone is new, there aren't currently many replacement parts available (I can't even find a replacement stylus for the Cookie yet, though they're available for other LG mobile phones).

Ultimately, I am answering because I am hopeful for you that your son may have merely dented the protection film that comes fitted on the phone. I scared myself thinking I had scratched the screen within moments of first using it before I realized it had a virtually invisible plastic film over it, which, due to my accident prone nature, I have kept on! Between the options of putting up with the finger-smudges that the covering attracts or potential permanent scratches - fingerprints are the lesser evil!

Alas! :o( If the screen is indeed ruined, have you considered asking for advice at the shop where you purchased the phone? They should be able to refer you to a mobile phone repair specialist. And you could check with them whether or not the damages are covered by the year-long warranty LG offers. Or you could wait and try to purchase a new screen when people start hocking them on Ebay...

All the best! Source(s):
