    Unhappy 2 Tone beep sound constantly playing :/

    Hi.

    I have a strange thing happening to my phone at the moment. When I put my phone on to 'Sound' and then unlock my phone, I get a 2 tone beeping sound constantly playing and wont stop. If I turn it onto silent its fine, but turning it back on, the sound plays :/. I have restarted the phone and shut it down but nothing.

    I have no apps running in the back ground either.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Try factory resetting the phone and reinstall everything. I think you have something buggering up in memory or a corrupt setting somewhere.

    Is that what is causing it? The NFC?

    I factory restored it yesterday and it started happening again today but only did the sound once? My NFC was turned on, but turned it off now. Must be a bug somewhere?

    Hello,

    I had a similar problem with my new galaxy S4.

    The beep sound occurs because of a setting in the clock widget. It happened because the app got updated and got reset to its original settings. It beeped every hour.

    Thanks but on my S4 (Verizon) it does not appear to be related to the NFC.

    On my phone it turned out to be the OK Google app. I uninstalled that app and the beeping went away.

    Thanks for the tip on NFC. I did some investigating, as my fiance was having this issue. It turned out she had a credit card with NFC that was interacting with the NFC in the phone. Removed the card from her wallet case and no issues anymore.

    Mines started doing the exact same thing two days ago. I didn't change any settings on the phone, but somehow I noticed that the NFC got switched on, and my gyro orientation setting was now switched off. Not certain how this happened, since I didn't touch any of these settings. Once I turned off the NFC and switched the orientation back on, the beeping stopped.

    Its probably a application go into settings -more then application manager and turn off the notification on your newest apps do it when the tone plays so you know when its off

    Yeah, same issue here. Put my military I'd (cac) in a wallet case. The NFC was trying to read the chip in it.

    Must be my issue as well I actually put my debit card which has a pay pass chip on in the wallet phone for the first time today it must have that NFC thing cause I have never heard it do that before til tonight it was driving me crazy! I'll turn NFC off as well & take the card out hopefully that will fix my issue.

    On my Nexus 5, was the NFC, but doesn't matter where the phone was... sometimes it played continuously, sometimes for seconds... just turned it off and the annoying sound stopped! I was almost heading to Apple store to buy an Iphone again! hauahuah

    I just got a new S4 from Assurion and my phone will occasionally play the NFC tone. It's not at a regular interval (the clock issue), my NFC is turned off, it's not the OK Google tone (I use OK Google so I'm not uninstalling it) and there is no notification that pops up when it happens (I don't know which app to silence notifications from).
    It's happened maybe 5 times in a 24 hour period so I'm not pulling my hair out, it's just affecting my OCD at the moment...

    I have exactly your problem with my NEXUS 4. It also had happen when the phone is in vibrating/silent mode and is not the default notification sound either just 4 fast beeps in a row. I even did a factory reset but it keeps beeping. Still can't find which app/service is triggerinig the beeps.

    Default Just in case you are having this problem while the phone is CHARGING...

    My phone was doing this as well, but it is when I am charging it. I researched and learned that my charger I am using is an old one and somehow the Galaxy Note 2 isn't "liking it".

    Because I don't post often enough, I am not allowed to post the link to the thread.
    I am quoting part of the conversation
    :
    "I've got the same issue. When I charge at night with an old micro USB 2.0 (or is it 2.1A?) charger that it beeps every so often and at times turns the display back on. It's very irritating. If there's no way to fix this other than upgrading all my chargers for this phone to USB3, that doesn't seem very backwards compatible.

    What I've noticed is if I bring up the "Battery" app, I see it change several times from "Charging" to "Not charging". Each time it beeps is when it goes from "Not charging" to "Charging". So obviously the S5 doesn't like these older non-USB3 chargers."

    "The phone charges fine with a USB 2 cable hooked to the new Samsung charger that came with the phone. So, it doesn't matter the cable, it matters how many amps your charger is putting out."

    I had similar issue when i tried to ring my device using android device manager. While ringing I switched off phone my mobile. So i had the issue where I used to get beep sound on unlock and device used to automatically move from silent mode after unlocking. All you have to do is ring the device again and unlock your mobile.
