    For about 2 weeks now I have noticed mostly when I press the side power button a quick image on my screen what looks like a cable motioning to be inserted into my phone. Its so quick that i am guessing thats what it is. And does not matter how much battery life I have left. I have searched the settings but cant figure this out. I would like to turn that “feature” off. Any suggestions?

    Never heard of this problem. Have you tried restarting the phone?

    Like the other members, I've never heard of this issue. There might be a way to capture the image you speak of by means of a screen recorder app.



    You can also try booting your Android into safe mode and see if the problem persists. If it doesn't its most likely do to a user app that was recently installed.

    Yes, have restarted the device. Have not tried safe mode though.

    Fixed. With a screen recorder able to ‘grab’ the image.
    It said “swipe up for Notistar”. Which seems to be a Samsung app. Must have installed in the last update. Any, uninstalled it.

    Not as impossible as you had thought :) Good to know you were able to solve the issue :)

    Thank you @ocnbrze :) . In truth, the idea of using a screen recorder started with your excellent advice of taking a screen shot.
