"Ding" sound on my S5

First Poster

My Galaxy S5 has recently begun to make a "ding" or "ching" sound and repeats it about 2 or 3 seconds later. It does this at roughly 15 to 20 minute intervals but not throughout the 24 hours. I cannot relate it to any app on the phone and cannot see  any way to turn it off. To the best of my recollection it did not sound from when I first used the phone but has only begun in the last 4-6 weeks. Any explanations?

It sounds like a notification or reminder alert. 

 

Perhaps begin by looking in your alarm and notifications settings @Garrett

I've checked the settings for every app on the phone and none of those that make a sound make the "ding" or "ching" sound. I've also scrolled through all the sounds in the list on the phone and the offending sound is not there. I'm baffled!

Do you have any chat apps such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp etc. 

 

Might be something in those.

Facebook Messenger but there's no activity on it when the ding sounds.

There appears to be no solution to my problem from the Community and so I'm ending my link to this topic. Thanks for the contribution to the topic.
