    Angry Galaxy S4 Brightness Slider Gone from Notification Bar?

    Yesterday the brightness slider randomly disappeared from the notification bar while the device was at about a 90% charge, with power saving mode off.

    I have done all of the following multiple times, to no avail:

    -Toggled the checkbox in Settings.
    -Restarted the device.
    -Removed the battery for extended periods.

    I am guessing that one solution would be to hard reboot the device, but I am hoping to find a solution for this issue without having to do so.
    The notification bar looks like this:

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Yes, as I said, I toggled the checkbox in settings many, many times, and it is currently checked.

    I was actually able to get it back without resetting, but it was a strange, accidental, round-about fix. I ran the app "Night Mode," which normally disables the slider and replaces it with a button that says "Night Mode." When I quit the app, the slider came back. Very weird.

    Not weird or strange at all. It was obviously the unmentioned app.
    I know nothing. Caution: I can edit and delete for no reason.

    Ya if you have night mode. Start and stop it. That should fix it.

    I don't have any "night mode" app, but I just lost the brightness slider, too. I tried the same things. It's currently marked to show and it looks like your picture above.
    I don't know what to do :-/

    Thank you for this post!

    Exact same thing happened to me while using the program Night Mode (it's a really nice app). So I turned the app on and then off. Slider came back = Happy!

    I had the same issue. I downloaded the app Night Mode, started it, stopped it and the slider was back where it used to be. I then uninstalled the app and the slider is still there. Sooo weird..

    It was magic. I had the same thing happen to me a few hours ago and then I found this thread. I found and downloaded that App, and BAM, it worked!
    Thank you for helping the rest of us all out! :-)
