Loud noise emitting from phone - intermittent


#1

A loud noise - like a smoke alarm detector - very loud - comes from the phone every few minutes. Checked settings and found no reason for alarm. My solution has been to turn dorn speaker. What is cause and permanent solution?


#2

Are you seeing any notifications when this happens?

Try clearing out your notifications and see if a new one coincides with the sound. If so you might be able to go into an app that might be sending this sound as a notification alert.

Or you also might want to try clearing out the System Cache, and/or rebooting.

Please tell me how to get to the System Cache. And if by rebooting you mean Powering Off and Restart, I understand. If its something else, please explain. Thanks, Geoff

Instructions vary by phone

See this document

Another thing to check would be Emergency Alerts…these instructions also vary by phone.

On a Moto X Pure on the 3.0 plan
You can access the Emergency Alerts by going to
Settings -> More -> Emergency Broadcasts
