    Wondering if anyone else is having this problem or its just me. I keep noticing that my screen timeout and brightness along with some other settings keep changing on their own. I have it set to 20% and 1min timeout and it keeps randomly going back to auto brightness and 30sec. It has also been occurring with auto sync, it will turn off sync for some things I want and turn on ones I don't like FB and Twitter etc. I don't know if its maybe something I keep doing or if is just some system glitches that others are having. Any advice or input is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Hey, I'm actually relieved to see that someone else is experiencing the same issue, I'm hoping it's not a hardware issue. I have been having the same problem. Randomly, my display and sound settings will revert, and my sync will turn off. My brightness resets, backlight stays on for 30 seconds, and the vibrate on soft key press turns off. My ringtone remains, though. Anyway, maybe we can figure it out, although I'm also searching other forums. I am rooted, running Das BAMF 1.5 Remix with I believe the newest hybrid radio. Your post was prior to the leak, so it might relate to the root or rom or apps more than the radio.

    I am also having this issue. My screen brightness resets, my timeout resets. Frustrating. I have to also keep turning off apps that turn on when not wanted. I am not tech savvy. So if you have answers please tell me like you would tell your grandma

    I recently upgraded my Nexus 9 to Android 7. Now in settings the display keeps doing back to fixed screen orientation, ie, turning off auto rotate. I am thinking of going back to Android 6.

    Welcome to the forum. Do you have an HTC Thunderbolt phone, or a different model? And, are you having the same issue as the original poster...screen brightness resetting on it's own?

    I have s5 phone. The full brightness changes to automatic, the screen timeout fits from 5min to 30 sec, auto sync stops and haptic setting is cancelled

    Did this just start recently after adding any new apps, or any app updates?

    It's been going on for a few weeks now. I tried removing recently added apps, and out of desperation today I removed all apps except for original + "orthodox well known" e. G. Skype, whatsapp etc
