    Screen Wont time out.

    I have been having the issue of the phone screen not automatically timing out. I always hit the power button to turn off the screen, but it will even stay on while charging. I have changed my settings numerous times... and I currently have it set to time out after 30 seconds. Still doesn't work. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Do you have any apps that disable sleep?

    No, I checked all the apps and I don't have any that disable sleep. I'm stumped by this one.

    Try holding the power button+the home button until it reboots. Then test it again.

    Had the exact same problem

    Had the exact same problem- phone would only stay off when it was charging. Traced it back to an app (accu weather) that kept turning the screen back on. Uninstalled the app and the problem went away. Suggest you try uninstalling most recent downloaded apps to see if one is creating the conflict.

    its, all over now christ that was no fun, but we did it my samsung s3 blinks no more,after haveing read and dilligently carried out about 7 or 8 different solutions starting from messing around with all the standard display settings, for a while
    turning wifi power aid off *#0044# off and a few more pointless frustrateing exersizes, as it,s got 34 instead of 3.4 gigas going places at the wrong time instead of takeing out the component and sticking a new one in we put a bandaid on it
    so my phone is rooted to verison got a galaxy locker galaxy locker screen stand by 5 seconds and wifi off i dont walk around with my wifi on all the time so only turning it on when i need it is normal turn it of before you close the fone turn it on when your useing it sorted
