Fix Iris Flashing

By flashing, flicker or ON and OFF we mean, if Iris:

  • Goes ON and OFF every several seconds
  • Flickers between orange and bright
  • Goes orange then a couple of seconds blue then orange again

What is the cause?

Here are several things which may cause this and ways to fix this

Conflicting programs

Remove all conflicting programs if you have any from your PC or Quit them. Examples of conflicting programs are:

  • Other blue light filtering software
  • Softwares for display calibration
  • Integrated blue light filtering or brightness adjusting features

Some programs which conflict with Iris are:

  • f.lux, Night Light, Night Shift, RedShift, Lightbulb, CareUEyes, Iris mini, Iris micro

If you have conflicting program quit it or remove it.

Other examples of conflicting programs are

  • The video card software sometimes also tries to change the gamma and the colors
  • On Windows, you can try switching between High and Low-level color API
  • Quit software for tweaking the video card or software from the video card vendors

Automatic Brightness

This happens a lot on macOS. If your monitor or laptop has an automatic brightness feature try to disable it and see if Iris will still flash.

Low-level API

  • As soon as I downloaded Iris for my PC, the first night it worked pretty well for my two-monitor setup. I have a Lenovo 710 windows 10 PC laptop and a large AOC screen as my second monitor. In any case, my computer immediately began to slow down after download, but things were working well enough for internet browsing. I got a lot of flickering between settings throughout the next day on both of my screens. Eventually, my second monitor began blinking and going black and the “extend” projection began glitching and only displayed a 1/3 of my work at a 25% scale on my second monitor. Hardly anything began working on my computer. It made me feel sick. I have never had problems with my computer like this before and every driver possible is up to date. I uninstalled Iris immediately
