    Default Top half of screen goes crazy

    Sorry for the not so descriptive title. Playing certain videos(Streaming player) and pictures in the Gallery, the top half of the screen goes blank. It works perfect any other time. I even had to take a picture since taking a screen shot makes it go away. Any thoughts?

    Same thing is happening on my LG Optimus Pro G since the other day. A bunch of my apps updated and then this happened out of nowhere. Doesn't seem to happen when in landscape mode. Tried removing updates/apps that were updated to see if it would fix it but no dice. Was really hoping to find some help on this as well.

    At least I not am the only one who got this. I experienced this on 2 of the Optimus G Pro

    Glad to know I'm not crazy too.......Is everyone here non-rooted and stock?

    The first things I noticed it on were Google Play Books and the Pinball Deluxe apps.

    I was thinking of doing this too. Oh well. Perhaps rooting and going with Cyanogenmod ?

    if you touch the volume button you get the full screen back temporarily. If you touch the screen you also get the same effect. It's weird. I bet even LG doesn't know this.

    I couldn't do a factory reset on mine as I had forgotten my password/pin, but a hard system reset has fixed the problem. As I re-add my apps, I will try to report back.

    So far, I have reinstalled You Version Bible, Smart Voice recorder, Chromecast, and Android Central. Anybody else here with those?

    same thing happened to mine with in the first week of ownership. it was stock out of box. it first started on my Go Locker lock screen. so i uninstalled that thinking it was software, then i noticed it was happening when ever i would view a pic in portrait. so i rooted the phone and went back to E98010k version, still same issue. so i LG flashed back to the E98010p it was shipped to me with. so far its working properly. was on way to return it to ATT to show them. but had to return it back to way it came. i'm concerned being you all are having same issue and this was not a refurbished unit but new. research the LG flash to stock and see if it fixes your issue. this worked so far for me
    Software update from AT&T!

    Ok, sports fans. I have finished reinstalling any apps I had except for a few. The problem has not resurfaced.

    Crap. I didn't mean to abandon the thread. Never got any notifications. I've just recently flashed back to stock and added all my old apps. It was at least a week later when it happened. Strange stuff.

    I noticed that the last system update (OTA) was 1.25.14 . That's probably when it happened.

    Clean Master from KS Mobile was the culprit. Reinstalling all of my apps, Clean Master said it was incompatible with my Android version. I went online, downloaded the beta version and the problem popped up again. Uninstalled and problem fixed.

    Hi, I live in India but I have bought my AT&T locked LG Optimus G Pro E 980 from USA in July 2013 and got it unlocked in India. Now I am using it on Vodafone network and it is working extremely fine.

    I came to know that AT&T has realsed some value pack update for this phone and when I tried to download it from Software udate option, the message says - You are not registered yet.

    Is there any way that I can get this update? I also read today on internet that net update of 4.4 kitkat is also likely to come for this phone by Q2 end. So, would I be able to update it then?

    I have got my phone rooted today and if this could anyhow help me, do let me know. Thanks.

    Same here. I had Clean Master but didn't even try to reinstall based on the incompatibility message. KUDOS!

    DO NOT try to put the latest update on. (98010p). It detects if the phone is rooted and if it isn't, makes it non-rootable.

    Factory reset is built into the GUI under Settings - General - Personal - Backup and Reset.

    Hard reset is to shut off the phone. Once it is off, press and hold the volume down button and then press and hold the power button. Once the LG logo pops up, let them go and then you'll get something that looks like the command prompt on a PC that asks you if you want to perform a hard reset. You press the power button twice to confirm.

    Make sure all your data (contacts, pictures, etc) are backed up somewhere. You'll basically have a wiped phone after this with whatever update you last installed.

    Just got off the phone with DeathStarTelco and advised them of the fix so they can hopefully pass it on....

    Thanks a bunch! This was bugging the crap out of me. I also removed Clean Master and now the problem is gone. BTW, Flappy Bird was the app that it almost always affected.

    I had the problem myself,
    Then it was completely solved by doing the following:
    Go to Settings > Developer options
    Scroll down until you find an option which says:
    "Disable HW overlays"
    Activate that option( place the tick ) and the problem will be solved.
    P.S.: if you face the problem again after rebooting your device for any reason, repeat the same steps.
