Default Notification sound

I keep getting a notification sound but there isn't anything in the status bar! Any ideas why and how to stop this?

Boot into recovery mode & select WIPE CACHE PARTITION & see if that'll do the trick.
Phone OFF,then simultaneously depress the VOLUME UP/POWER/HOME buttons.

Release once you see the boot screen w/the recovery header at the top of the page.

Wait for the GREEN ANDROID bot to appear & see a menu.

Using the VOLUME rocker,select WIPE CACHE PARTITION.Press the POWER button.

Then,you should again be at the top of the menu to re-boot.

Depress the POWER button to re-boot & you'll return to normal operations.

No worries,you won't lose one iota of information/data/contacts/etc.....

Absolutely.I've done this on all of my phones,rooted & unrooted/stock,as a 1st defense/action when the inexplicable arises.

Can't hurt,most of the time takes care of things.

Check out QBKING77's channel on YOU-TUBE,lots of good stuff there,including tutorials on booting into recovery on several devices,inclunding the SAMSUNG line-up.

Hard to say, could be many things depending upon what you've loaded on the phone for apps. Facebook can be a pain as they have a notification for so many things.

One sure fire way to control all your notifications is to use an app called Light Flow. Initially developed to control your notification light with different colors it has since grown to also allow the use of custom notification sounds and vibration patterns. Very powerful app.

Once you have this app you just turn off your stock notifications in the settings and assign different colored lights, sounds and/or vibration patterns for only those app notifications you want to receive notifications for.

There is a free version that will allow you to test the app and see if it's for you. Paid version (only $1.99 last time I checked) adds a whole bunch of addition apps. The dev is very responsive to questions and suggestions.

Highly recommended.

THIS,or you can boot into SAFE MODE.This basically is the phone running only the OS & TOUCHWIZ as it came out-of-the-box,w/o any of your other stuff/downloaded apps running.
Then,once in SAFE MODE,open up one app at a time until you find the culprit.

As stated in the video,simply re-boot to escape SAFE MODE.
