I have a Lenovo Vibe and using it from a year and a half. Recently I observed that the display turns on and off on it's own, while charging (only while charging)

I tried to change Display Settings and upgrading the device. But the problem still persists. So even if I charge for 3 hours, it fills only for 50 %. This was not the behaviour earlier.

How can I fix this please?

Current Android Version: 5.1. I don't remember the previous version .

  • How can I update my question ? Didn't see any options. So adding a comment.I don't remember the previous version. Here's the current details. Android Version: 5.1 Base band version: P1ma40_A_V035_160226 – Vijay Aug 8 '16 at 13:12
  • Where i can find developer option ? In settings tab, i don't see it. I have only "About Phone" And I didn't understand the term, " Rooted" – Vijay Aug 8 '16 at 13:19
  • @Vijay to update your question, use the edit link below it. As for developer settings: If you don't see them, you can't have changed that option (and btw, it wouldn't explain the turning on and off). If you're interested in this nevertheless, see our usb-debugging tag-wiki on how to activate developer settings ;) – Izzy Aug 8 '16 at 13:23

This is not a solution to fix your device problem. It is a workaround only to keep your screen off, while charging

Automation is the preferred option. Many apps are available. I prefer using MacroDroid , since it is free (upto 5 macros) and easy to learn. To understand how MacroDroid works and required settings, my answer here

Your macro would look like this

  • Macro : Screen Off (name of macro )


Power Connected


Screen On/OffScreen Off

Constraints: None (leave blank)

  • I will try this Work around and let you know the results. Thanks for your time. – Vijay Aug 8 '16 at 13:39
