    Default Strobing

    Read somewhere to go in SETTINGS, DEVICE, ACCESSIBILITIES and turn off flashing lite notifications to stop the screen strobing I sometimes get ever since I upgraded to 4.3, BUT there is no such thing to turn off! I have Samsung Galaxy S3. How do I turn off the flashing screen?

    Welcome to Android Central! Can you describe the problem in a bit more detail? So the screen flashes on and off quickly sometimes? Have you tried either a cache partition wipe, or the last resort of a factory reset? [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    The setting that you're referring to changes the behavior of the flash on the back of the phone (normally used with the camera) - it doesn't have anything to do with your screen getting weird.

    I'd go with the system cache wipe and Factory Reset, as mentioned above, particularly if the problem started right after an update.

    Cache partition wipes will not erase any personal data or settings, so don't worry about that.

    Well, you can try booting into Safe mode http://support.verizonwireless.com/s...ase.html/59242 and if the problem goes away then you know it's a 3rd party application causing your problem. Just reboot the phone again to get out of Safe mode and everything should be back to normal.
