    Default s4 screen lock time keeps popping

    i had my Samsung GT-I9500 3 months ago. It happens that sometimes the world clock keeps popping continuously in an interval of 3-5 secs.
    its annoying that when i am typing and the Samsung keyboard is reset when this happens. i noticed that when if its in lock mode, its just popping up light or its the same as you are pressing the home key button/power button many times.

    i had contacted the samsung support center and they said to run in safe mode but still happening. Can you please help me solve this problem. is this a problem that can be solve. thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! So are you saying that the phone keeps going to the lockscreen, even in the middle of doing something? And then you have to unlock out of the lockscreen? Does the screen actually turn off?

    Are you having any issue with the power button? Have you tried turning off the Screen Lock in your Security settings?

    If the problem is still happening in Safe Mode, it's probably a hardware or firmware issue. The only thing I can suggest at this point is to try a cache partition wipe: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    Turning off the auto time update and network time adjustment settings solved my similar issue.
