My settings keeps crashing since March update and my screen is flickering since Pie update. Any ideas on how to fix this?

This is the solution for me. Would have sucked if I needed to factory reset it. Clued me right in, I had added the night mode button right before it started happening.

The March update accidentally added a new night mode switch to the quick access panel  If you pulled the quick settings panel down and used the button order settings to drag the new night mode icon down to the active panel it will crash settings  

Try moving the new icon back to the neutral zone to see if that stops the settings crash  

If that doesn't work you have to open developer options and scroll down to quick settings developer tiles and turn off the first entry titled night mode.

This worked for me! Thank you so much! It's great to stop seeing the message after adjusting the screen brightness.

This is the fix! Factory Reset works to the extent you don't re add the button, however if you never realized it was a duplicate the first time and re add it, the errors start again. Thanks for the help, CLF!

Thank you SO much! That worked! When I moved night mode out of the quick menu, that didn't work... When I went to Developer settings and, "turned off the first entry titled night mode", THAT WORKED, so far... GREAT work!!!

Hey,

@userF14SNqgETb

Developer Options.

Open system settings, About Phone, Software Information, Tap on Build Number multiple times quickly and it sends a quick message that a few more taps will unlock developer options. Once it's unlocked back out to the main system settings menu and scroll down to the very bottom. Select developer option. Enter your pin or password and it opens.

We can turn it off by using the switch at the top of the settings menu.

Take care, 

Best regards,
