SOURCE: 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

How to Turn Off Screen Overlay on Android:
1) Open your Android’s Settings. It’s the gear ( ) icon typically found in the app drawer.
This method is helpful when you see an error message that says “Screen overlay detected. To change this permission setting, you first have to turn off the screen overlay from Settings > Apps.”
The error sometimes occurs when you update an app that supports screen overlays.

2) Scroll down and tap Apps. This may be called Applications on some devices.

3) Tap ?. It’s at the top-right corner of the app list.

4) Tap Configure Apps.

If you don’t see this option, look for a gear icon ( ) or Application Manager.
If you tapped Application Manager, tap More at the top-right corner of the screen, then proceed to the next step.

5) Tap Draw over other apps. This may be called Can appear on top on some devices. If you don’t see either of these options, it’s probably buried in a sub-menu. Tap the menus until you find it.

6) Tap the app that gave you the error message. Common apps that have screen overlays are Messenger, WhatsApp, Clean Master, Drupe, screen recorders, and Lux.

7) Slide the “Permit drawing over other apps” switch to the (Off) position. Screen overlays are now disabled for this app. You can now return to the app in which you saw the error message to try again.....

1. Open your Settings.
2. Tap Apps.
3. Tap this icon ?
4. Tap Configure Apps.
5. Tap Draw over other apps.
6. Tap the app you were using.
7. Slide the switch to the Off position.

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.

How to take a screenshot on Sky IM-820L. It is asking for rooting the mobile

On Android, you can just press the Power button and the Volume down button at the same time. After a flash on the screen, you can go to Gallery to find the screenshot. If this doesn't work on your phone, you can try a screenshot app that doesn't require rooting, like this one:
It lets you screenshot by simply tapping on its overlay icon.

I have an alpine iva-w502 e with navigation when i try to put the nav on it goes to the warning screen and i press ok but nothing happens how can i solve this

This issue is solved with an update available from the Alpine website. The way it was explained to me is that every time you turn the unit on, it loads that overlay warning screen (even if you don't select navigation), so when you do go to the navigation, there might be 5-10-20-however many times you have turned the unit on overlays. Basically you can keep pressing it and eventually it will go away (if you have turned the unit on 100 times it would get a little annoying though) or you can download the update from the Alpine website and the issue will go away.

1998 Jeep Cherokee -- car won't start. Turns over

have scanned to find problem code to get an idea of what it is. .it may either be the crank or cam sensor, check the crank sensor first. if it is bad it sends wrong timing info to pcm. therefore jeep will not start!! It is either the camshaft or crankshaft positioner. I would check the crank pos. first. Zach Cabot, AR
