IPhone :: When Phone In Otterbox Defender Case Proximity Sensor Stops Working

Jul 27, 2010

Got my Defender the other day. I noticed that when the phone is in the case the proximity sensor stops working. I take the phone out and it work fine. I emailed Otterbox and the guy said to clean the plastic window. Really?? you dont think I tried that before sending the email? I am going to try my brothers case to see if its the case. My brother told me that he had the proximity sensor issue before the case and now his works fine. My last step is to reload 4.0.1 but I have to figure out how to get a video off the phone first.

Motorola Atrix 4G :: Proximity Sensor Stops Working When Make / Receive Call Via Bluetooth

Nov 8, 2011

Clean boot (restart), the proximity sensor works fine (when on call it turns screen off, when moved away from face screen on). As soon as I make or receive call via bluetooth (Motorola brand btw.) The proximity sensor stops working. When on call it will not turn the screen off... Rebooting the phone will fix until a call is made/received via bluetooth. This was confirmed with other Moto phones (Photon...) as well as different bluetooth devices.

Atrix 4G / 2.3.4

Motorola Droid X :: Workaround For Proximity Sensor And Waterproof Case?

Jun 5, 2011

I am frequently on the water and carry my Droid X in an Aquapac waterproof case. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to use the keypad to enter digits or hang up because the proximity sensor responds to the case and shuts off the screen. If I am quick enough, I can activate the speaker phone before this happens, but it's not ideal for a conversation. For whatever reason, this happened when I first bought the phone, went away with the Froyo upgrade, and is now back again with the Gingerbread upgrade.

IPhone :: IP4 Got Otterbox Defender Today

Jul 22, 2010

I ordered the Defender for my Iphone 4 2 days ago and got it today - That's fast shipping (paid for 3 day shipping).I love this case, but having never owned one of these cases in the past, I was instantly overwhelmed with how to break it down to put the phone into it. The directions are pictures on the inside of the box and not very clear. This is my only complaint.I eventually figured it out and I can tell you it is the best case I have ever owned. It does add bulk, but it has a nice tactile feel to it and access to all ports. The incuded holster with belt clip is rock soild. If I knew how to upload pictures here, I would post some.

Lumia 950 :: Phone Proximity Sensor Not Working

Nov 26, 2015

Where the 950's proximity sensor is located? I want to make sure my screen protector isn't covering it. It appears to be to the left of the camera. If that's the case then my problem shouldn't be the screen protector as whatever is to the left of the camera is not covered..

Whenever I dial a number my screen goes black as soon as I hit the call button. It does not wait until I put the phone up to my ear as my 920 and 640 do. I have to hit my power button twice to get the screen back. It's acting as if the proximity sensor is stuck on activated.

IPhone :: Otterbox Defender Just Upgraded Their Holster

May 5, 2010

I have had an Otterbox Defender on all three of my iPhones and just love the case. Otterbox just upgraded their holster and gave the new one to existing customers that asked for it; GREAT customer service. The only thing that I didn't like about the case was the "oil slick" that you see under the screen. I've tried using baby powder and it worked for a while, but you had to keep it refreshed. Well I went to Apple and bought their Anti-glare screen protector and put it on the phone and inserted the phone in the Otterbox case and OMG no more "oil slick". Just thought you might like to know.

IPhone :: IP4 Proximity Sensor Not Working

Jun 25, 2010

Noticing someting wierd with my new iPhone 4 - the proximity sensor doesn't seem to work well (or at all..)When the phone is up against my ear or if I'm cradling the phone between my ear and shoulder the proximity sensor should disable the screen and touch controls until it detects that I've pulled the phone away from my head. My iPhone 3G excelled at this. My iPhone 4 however seems to want to keep the screen on at all times, causing "cheek dialing" issues, mostly trying to initiate FaceTime.

Anyone else experiencing this?

So I recently upgraded to IOS 8.1.1 and since I made that update with my iPhone 5 32gb my proximity sensor has stopped working and has caused me to face time or end calls or mute conversations with my cheek while on a call.

IPhone :: Earpiece And Proximity Sensor Not Working

Jan 31, 2010

I've had an iPhone 3G for one year and a half. I Opened it up a few months ago to change the back cover, which was broken; and I broke a bit the plastic piece of connector 3 of the mother board (see at the Attached image); However, It worked perfectly... Until now, that I've reopened my iPhone to change again the backcover (false covers aren't very good...), and when I finished... Noticed that the earpiece is not working! I can't hear anything while calling! I know that the connector 3 of the screen is the cause, because proximity sensor isn't working neither...

But my question is:
Is there any way to know which part of the "connector 3" has been broken? The MoBo, or the Screen Flex? Because if it's the second, I can replace it for a few bucks, but if not... :S Or... Is there any other connector that I could damage or put badly, so they are doing contact with wrong pieces, etc etc? Notice that I had to disarm the whole iPhone to change the cover... So perhaps.

IPhone :: Proximity Sensor / Way To Hold Your Phone?

Jul 16, 2010

The proximity sensor on my iPhone 4 has been driving me crazy and I've been holding the phone to my left ear the same way as I've held every iPhone before with no problems. I thought what would happen if I moved it up a bit so the sensor was at the top part of my ear instead of at the hole part of the ear. So far, in the 3 calls I've made, it seems to have fixed it. Will have to see some more of the next couple days and it does require you to think and focus on how you are holding it but at least I can use the phone.

BB Torch :: 9800 Proximity Sensor Not Working?

Feb 8, 2012

I have just bought a Torch 9800 but am annoyed by the failure of the proximity sensor to detect my face during a call. I cannot say that the sensor doesn't work because when I made a call to myself and use my finger to cover the sensor, it detected it and blank the screen. It also worked when I place my palm near it. However, it never works when I actually put it next to my ear. I think may be it's because I have black hair and blackberry designers never expected that. To solve this problem temporarily, I need to cover the sensor with my thumb during calls but it's uncomfortable to hold the phone that way.

Nokia Lumia :: Proximity Sensor Not Working Correctly

Apr 5, 2012

I have updated the latest firmware (1600.2487.8107.12070) just a week back. Even now the battery backup is not good enough as boasted by your team. The battery does not even last for 8 hrs. This is the first time am facing such a poor battery backup for a Nokia Device. Though the call end issue is resolved in this update, the proximity sensor issue still remains. The screen blanks out when the proximity sensor is activated while calling and has to be activated again to bring back the normal screen.

Steps to reproduce this issue:

1. Make a call
2. Take the handset near your ear (The proximity sensor is activated now)
3. Move it from your ear (The proximity sensor is deactivated now, but the screen is still blank)
4. Again take it near your ear and release it again (The screen is visible now)

But, when I close the cover fully, it turns back on.The apps I tried was Gravity Screen, Auto Screen On Off and Smart Cover Lite.

Motorola Photon 4G :: Proximity Sensor Not Working While On Calls

Sep 9, 2011

I've seen this issue posted, but no updates or feedback in a while. While on a call the screen does not turn off, and I am constantly hanging up on people. I have installed the recent update that fixed the no call audio issue, and have rebooted the phone several times. The reboot will fix the problem, but only temporarily. I have also played with the pocket detection setting, and that does not make a difference. I do use bluetooth, and am thinking that it has something to do with it.

Xperia Z3 :: Proximity Sensor Stopped Working After Lollipop Upgrade

Jun 18, 2015

Getting used to the new look with lollipop but ever since the upgrade my screen goes black and doesn't respond at all during a phone call. Have tried pressing all the buttons but always have to wait until the call ends. This makes it worthless during calls, especially if there is an automated system. The only time it does work is when using Bluetooth.

Nokia Lumia :: Proximity Sensor Not Working Screen Turns Off

Apr 14, 2012

During outgoing calls, the screen rarely, if ever, turns off due to the proximity sensor - I need to manually do it using the screen lock button.However, with incoming calls, the screen turns off fine (due to the proximity sensor).For both incoming and outgoing calls, it is often impossible to get the screen to light again once it is off.Initially I thought my proximity sensor might be faulty, but the proximity sensor works perfectly in the diagnostics app. So it seems to be a software issue.

Motorola Atrix 4G :: Proximity Sensor Quits Working With Gingerbread

Aug 23, 2011

After the gingerbread update I found that the proximity sensor would quit workng and the only solution was to restart the phone. I found that using bluetooth caused this behavior (repeated several times) by getting it to fail (although not every time) using the following sequence.

1. Power down and restart the phone (so that it was in a known state)

2. Call voice mail to confirm that the proximity sensor was working

3. Turn on blue tooth.

4. Turn off blue tooth. (didn't use it in between other then to connect with headset)

5. Call voice mail and proximity sensor would not work.

6. Cycle power on phone

7. Call voice mail and proximity sensor would work.

My solution was to quit using bluetooth and have not been using since the first week I updated to gingerbread. I did have the sensor quit working one time since but didn't think much of it until my daughter-in-law told me she had the same problem and she doesn't use bluetooth but she does use the speaker phone much more than I do. I believe that both speaker phone and bluetooth functions disable the sensor while in use. Is it possible that it is not always getting re-enabled? I have seen other posts concerning the proximity sensor not working but have not seen a tie to bluetooth use.
