When i make calls or receive the call my Sony Xperia Arc S mobile display is going blank if i press any key can not able to see the display and can not access the phone Sony Xperia Arc S, that's fine, the proximity sensor turns off the screen but when i finish talking the screen stays black but the phone is turned on and i can not access it, not even pressing the turn off button or the home key.
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!
Many people reported issues with proximity sensor being buggy. If calibrating didn't work for you the issue is probably the same as mine.
This only affects third party apps screen on/off during calls should be working fine.
What happens is that any app requiring the use of proximity sensor will work straight after installation but will most likely stop working after a reboot.
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.
So, I can't seem to find an answer to this. Most posts seem to say it is the proximity sensor, but I don't think that is it. Anyway......
I have a Galaxy S4. I use the pattern screen lock. If the phone is locked when I receive an incoming call, I can answer it by swiping. However, the phone remains locked. I have no way to switch it to speaker phone, look up a contact, or even hang up.
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.
