Music stops playing when device locked: possible solution


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have noticed that quite a few people over the past few months have been experiencing a bug where the music in Poweramp stops playing at random and especially within ten seconds of the device being locked. This is not specifically a Poweramp issue as it happens with many other music player apps and is not limited to one specific device or even to one specific version of Android. Various settings have been changed to no avail and I myself noticed this problem occurring a few days ago on my own device (Samsung A5 2017 running Android 6.0.1) and could not find a solution.

I then thought back to what I had changed in the days leading up to this problem occurring: I had set up fingerprint unlock. The problem was solved by simply deleting the saved fingerprint and reverting to code/pattern unlock. I also noticed that I had a constant notification of "Moisture detected in charging port" that has stopped since disabling fingerprint unlock, but that may be irrelevant.

I surmise that as yet (at least in my device but possibly also in others), fingerprint unlock interferes with some features and I am personally happy to just use code/pattern unlock, but I would be happy to hear if anyone else still has this problem of the music stopping playing when the device is locked and if disabling fingerprint unlock fixes the problem.

Thanks.
