    My LG Stylo 4 will randomly start beeping ( the sound it would make when plugging in the charger cable) while the phone is in sleep mode. The phone will continue to beep every 5 to 10 seconds. When I wake up the phone there are no notifications. The only way I can make the phone stop beeping is to reboot. I have no idea what is causing this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Do you have NFC enabled? Is the phone touching anything magnetic, such as a credit card?

    NFC is disabled. The phone can be laying anywhere when the beeping starts.

    Has this beeping always occurred, or is it something that started happening recently?

    If it's something new, have you gotten any new apps?

    Does it persist in Safe Mode?

    I believe I can trace it back to latest LG software update in February.

    I have no clue what causes the beeping to start. It happens randomly. I don't see how I will be able to solve by going into safe mode.

    I have ensured all aops are closed. I have made sure to disable all notifications have made sure NPS is disabled along with any sharing capabilities. Yet the phone still continues to beeo every 10 seconds until it is rebooted and then randomly starts all over again. The phone has been brought in to Metro they refuse to exchange it and state the issue is with an app and do factory reset and issue starts all over again have not installed new apps just the ones that were on device before issue started. Is there a way to uninstall LG updates to see of that resolves issue?

    Place in Safe Mode to isolate the problem. If it is a 3rd party app, do a reset, but not restore. Good luck

    Welcome to Android Central! By "NPS," do you mean NFC?

    Does the beep sound like a default notification tone, or is it completely different?

    Since it sounds like a charging notification and seems to be associated with charging I wonder if it isn't your plug/cable. With the phone on you might not notice it as much but with the phone off try charging it and watch it to see if the charging notification pops up again and again. If so it could be the connection of the cable may be bad and need replaced.

    I don't think you ever mentioned if you booted the phone into Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away, as suggested by methodman89.

    It'd been so long I thought this was solved. To the OP, do what is already suggested.

    My phone was doing the same thing. I did a hard reboot last night and has not done it since. Fingers crossed. Hold the power button than the volume down for 5 seconds. It should go into restart mode.

    My stylo 5 just started to do the same thing today. I've only had it for 2-3 weeks. I did a restart and it stopped. Now, I wait to see if it starts again.

    As far as I can tell, no one in this thread has tried Safe Mode yet, as suggested multiple times earlier on. There's not much point in suggesting other troubleshooting steps until someone actually tests the phone in Safe Mode.

    In safe mode there is no beep. The sound is not the default notification sound. It is the sound when you plug in the phone. I really do not want restore phone to factory.

    Edit for Update: Simply putting the phone in safe mode then restarting the phone into normal mode seemed to fix the issue for me. At least for the last 10 minutes. Big thanks to all who suggested this resolution it was driving me crazy!

    To put the phone into safe mode:
    1) Press and hold the Power button.
    2) Tap and hold Power off (on the screen).
    3) When the Reboot to safe mode prompt appears, tap again or tap OK.
