Love this awesome phone but as of late the proximity sensor on this note has either broke or is buggy. First started to notice that the red light of the proximity sensor would not turn off. After a while as I make phone calls my screen will turn off but as I put my phone away from my face it doesn't turn back on.
Recently, my phone has been having a problem with the proximity sensor during calls. When I finish a call, or want to look at my screen, the screen does not turn on by itself so I need to press the home button for the screen to light up. This is very annoying!
Since yesterday i have a problem with my proximity sensor.
It think something is in front of it always.
So when i make or receive a call the screen goes black and stays black untill the other person hangs up.
I think I'm having a issue with the proximity sensor on my htc one. I End up disconnecting calls or loudspeaker.
The proximity sensor is on the top left of the phone and i normally put my ear against the top right f the phone as I wear glasses. Since i have small ear's, the sensor doesn't get covered. Normally the sensor is near the ear piece so never had this issue.
I am posting this as an FYI...
I have been having issues with my phone since installing a screen protector. (Steinheil ultra)
The screen would blank after unlocking. The knock on feature would rarely work. The screen would not come on when I would pull the phone away from my face. Lastly, I installed a proximity sensor app that showed my proximity sensor to be flaky.
My proximity sensor seems to always be "on" so not only will it turn the screen off when I am on a call, but also whenever I play a game, or do anything with my phone, even when on the lock screen. I have to be very careful not to put my finger near the proximity sensor or else the screen turns off.
I have a P925. Unlocked it though IMEI, my proximity sensor was acting up, since the screen went off during calls and no button would bring it back. I checked the rest of the components on the same flex cable (camera, earspeaker, noise mic) and all work fine except for the proximity sensor, so i thought it might be a software problem.
I rooted the phone and installed the clockworkMOD thing...
Seems some dust is stuck up on my i747s proximity sensor. I will get it cleaned at a later point, but for now I need to disable the proximity sensor. The phone screen just turns off as soon as I dial a number and wont come back up until the call has disconnected. So cannot access the screen while on call.
