Why is Default Content running on my screen even after schedule is associated to it?

Default composition is a composition set to any screen that has no Quick Play or scheduled content assigned to it. This is also the composition that starts to play automatically whenever a new screen is added. 

Default content may be running on your screen in the following cases : 
  1.  There is no active schedule or quickplay associated to the device.
  2. You have an active schedule, but there is no content(composition) assigned during that particular time.
  3.  You have assigned the schedule and while the content is getting downloaded
