time keeps changing

Why in the world does my time keep changing to eastern? I keep resetting it to CST and it keeps reverting. What is up with that?

Re: time keeps changing

Do you have your device set to automatic date and time when you are experiencing these symptoms?

it happens whether I have it set on auto or turn it off. I'm in Chicago and it keeps changing to New York for time zones 🤷‍♀️

Re: Re: time keeps changing

Just to clarify, if you input the time manually the time still changes back to Eastern Standard time?

Re: time keeps changing

Do you experience these symptoms if you test your device in safe mode? If your phone is misbehaving, it's possible that a third-party app is causing the issue. To figure out what app is acting funny, you can use the Safe Mode feature. In Safe Mode, your phone won't run any third-party apps. This allows you to easily identity and remove the app that may be causing the problem. Give this link a try: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00062983/

 

I would also recommend trying to wipe the cache partition on your device. The system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly. Give these steps a try: 

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby / Power key.
  3. When the Android logo displays, release both keys.
  4. An 'Installing system update' message may show briefly before the Android Recovery menu options appear.
  5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight Wipe cache partition.
  6. Press Bixby / Power key to select.
  7. Press the Volume down key to highlight Yes, then press the Bixby / Power key to select.
  8. When the process is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
  9. Press the Bixby / Power key to restart the device.

Re: time keeps changing

This is happening to me too (and many others based on other threads on this site).  You can tuen off automatic time, but it turns back on a few days later and problem returns.
