My Samsung Galaxy Note3's screen comes on during the night. How can I turn it off?
The screen lights up at night and stays on all night.
The first thing you can try to do to turn your Samsung Galaxy Note3's screen off at night is to press the power button on the right-hand side of the device when it lights up. The power button also acts as a sleep/wake button, so pressing it should turn off the display when it's on. If it doesn't, follow these instructions to make sure that your Samsung Galaxy Note3's display settings are not preventing it from automatically turning the display on at night:
- 1Press your Samsung Galaxy Note3's Home button to return to your phone's home screen.
- 2Tap the Apps icon, which looks like a grid and is located in the lower right-hand corner of your display.
- 3Scroll through your applications and tap the Settings icon to open your phone's Settings application.
- 4Tap the Device tab.
- 5Tap Display.
- 6Tap Screen timeout.
- 7Select a short time duration option.
- 8Restart your phone.
Your phone's display will now automatically timeout (or turn off) at the desired time duration that you have selected. If your Samsung Galaxy Note3 still does not turn its screen off after you have switched your settings, you may have a software glitch from an application that you downloaded. Uninstall the most recent application that you installed and restart your phone. If that still doesn't fix the issue, backup your phone to your computer using Samsung Kies 3 and perform a factory reset by following the steps in this great VisiHow how-to article. Once the reset is complete, see if the issue persists. If it doesn't, your Samsung Galaxy Note3 may be suffering from a hardware malfunction and you will need to contact Samsung's customer support line to speak to a customer service representative who can help you schedule a repair or replacement for your device. Depending on your warranty status and the severity of the issue, you may or may not have to pay for the service.
