    Hi - its a Samsung Alpha. and the error is "an error has occurred with the fingerprint scanner. If this message appears repeatedly, restart your device".. I have restarted my phone a dozen times today - every time I go to log into my phone this error message appears and I have restart the phone.

    Try booting into Safe Mode to see if a 3rd party app is causing the interference:

    Nope... that didn't do anything.. I've also since deleted all my apps (game wise) and restarted my phone and still same error message.

    It could be a problem with the firmware, in which case you may have to try a factory reset, or possibly re-flashing the stock firmware via Odin: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...interface.html

    Or it could be a hardware problem with the scanner, in which case I would contact Samsung for warranty repair (if it's still under warranty).
