    I got an S5 just over a week ago, with the official S-View Flip Case, and it all worked fine to start with. However over the last few days I've had issues with the case. To start with occasionally when I closed the cover, instead of having the background wallpaper and large digital clock, the screen through the window was black but still with all the icons along the top - wifi, signal, battery % etc. And occasionally when I opened the cover and pressed one of the start buttons the whole screen stayed blank for a few seconds with only the soft keys at the bottom lighting up.

    So for the last couple of days I used the phone without the flip case and it's worked absolutely fine. Now I've put the flip case back on and now every single time I close the case the window only shows up black with the icons along the top (and obviously goes completely blank when the screen turns off). When I press the power button with the case closed it's the same story, even though I should get the big digital clock, bright background wallpaper etc. What's going on?! I can't find anything about this problem elsewhere on the internet. Anyone got any suggestions? Do you think it's a problem with the phone or with the case? Since I've had it for so little time I should be able to take it back to Vodafone next week when I'm near the shop, but I'm really hoping it's the case and not the phone because I've put a lot of time into adding my contacts, photos, apps etc!

    Probably just the case but have you checked the settings for accessories to make sure its recognized properly

    Yep it comes up in Accessories and lets me change the wallpaper, weather and pedometer settings.

    Update after all the helpful replies. My phone did a software update yesterday and since then it's all worked fine. So I guess it was the phone rather than the case, which sucks. Just have to hope it doesn't happen again.
