I am having difficulty with the ringer symbol constantly appearing on screen in every app and it interferes/prevents me using that area of the screen. It appears every few seconds and stays on screen for 1 or 2 seconds at a time. How do I stop it?

remove any case you have and check again. Sometimes badly designed iPhone cases cause this problem.
restart or force restart the device and see if this problem goes away or returns
It could be an ad or something else playing in the background or stuck so force close all open apps by double pressing home or swiping up the home gesture bar and then swiping up off the top of your screen all apps until you see the home screen with no app previews
If that doesn’t stop it, try Reset All Settings. Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.
Another possibility is a broken or dirty ringer switch. Press the slide switch and volume buttons on and off multiple times and see if this gets things going. You may need to get this switch replaced.
