Samsung Galaxy S II :: Any Way Of Speeding Up Reaction Of Proximity Sensor?

Jan 1, 2012

Is there a way of speeding up the proximity sensor? Just find it really slow at re-enabling the screen when ending calls. I know that it can be turned off all together, but I really don't want to do that since it conserve battery in calls.

Jul 21, 2013

Issue with the proximity sensor shutting the screen off when you're about to key something in or multi task while on a call? The phone keeps shutting the screen off while I'm on call.

Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Turn Off Proximity Sensor?

Jan 21, 2011

My problem is that when starting calls I put the phone to my ear and it is muted. The other end hears me, but I dont hear them. This happens most of the time, but not always.I have tested the proximity sensor and the test is OK most of the time and across most of the screen.But since this is creating such frustration, with customers loosing me on the phone, I just want the phone to work as it does on my old HTC Touch Pro:When starting a call the screen automatically goes blank and I cannot accidentally touch the mute button or anything else.Can I do this on my X10 Mini Pro?Alternatively, can I move the mute button to somewhere else on the screen or remove it entirely?

HTC One S :: Proximity Sensor Turns On But Not Functioning During Call Using Speaker

Aug 2, 2012

I have a One S, about a month old. Since practically new I've noticed that when I make a call and use speaker phone the proximity sensor (dull rapidly flashing red light) turns on but doesn't function during a call, when the call is ended the proximity sensor is still turned on until I either restart the phone or make a call without speakerphone and end it. Making a call without speaker phone the proximity sensor functions correctly and turns off when the call is ended.

I have asked HTC support about this, they have recommended clearing cache partition through boot menu and clearing HTC sense app data, neither have worked and they are now suggesting the phone be sent for repair. Would you agree that this could be a hardware issue or is it more likely a software issue since proximity sensor functions normally unless the speaker phone is used?

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.

LG G4 :: Proximity Sensor Always On When Screen Is Off

Sep 11, 2015

LG g4 proximity sensor always on when screen is turned off.

If the screen is on, but before unlock, proximity sensor is on as well. It will turn off only after unlock the screen to home screen.

Will it cause battery drain and infrared light burned out/dead after being *"ON" all the time?

It is infrared, so you can only tell if you use another camera or phone look at it. it is easy to test, just look proximity sensor with another camera or phone camera (that can see infrared, can be test with your TV remote)....

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?

IPhone :: Proximity Sensor Fixed On 4

Jul 5, 2010

I have fixed my proximity sensor and can now make calls without hanging up/muting etc. I was having severe problems with the proximity sensor on my IPhone 4. During calls my ear was hitting mute, end call, face time etc. Today I had the hardware replaced at a retail store and restored a backup. The problem remained. Then I read a post on this site suggesting resetting the network settings and thought, why not, Apple had no fix.

Before I started I tested and recorded that the proximity sensor required my hand to be about 5mm above the sensor before it kicked it and blanked the screen. Then I used Settings/General/Reset/ Reset network settings. After this the proximity sensor worked at about 3cm under exactly the same conditions. I have continued using the phone including setting my WiFi password which had been cleared.

This wont clear everyone's problems but: As it takes 30 seconds and doesnít wipe your phone, give it a try before sitting on the phone to Apple, driving to the Apple store etc. Besides they donít have a fix yet. My testing pretty much proved that for me, changing hardware didn't help but a configuration change did. Therefore even though other users may have other setting, which in combination with a complex bug mean this fix doesn't work for them, it is a software bug in some cases, probably most. So Apple should work this out in the end and post an update to the OS.

If this fix doesnít work for you and you want to do something, test your sensor by starting a call, leaving the speakerphone off and putting three fingers over the top of the phone covering the entire phone above the screen. If the screen blanks when your hand is close but comes on when less than a couple of centimetres away, then see if a software fix helps. Take a backup and then wipe the phone and then retest.

IPhone :: Proximity Sensor Issue

Jul 12, 2010

My big beef with the phone is the proximity sensor and if I'm in a call longer than 5 minutes, I can pretty much rock the phone off my ear ever so slightly and the screen comes on. My only fear is that once I get it there, the genius won't be able to replicate my problem and tell me it's fine.

Basically I'm asking for advice/tips on what to say to this guy (I've never been to an Apple Store and I haven't heard how nice the people are in the Florida Mall) so I don't overreact to whatever this guy is going to say to me.

I'm also curious to know if anyone else has had Apple replace the phone for this specific issue because I seem to be the only one out of my batch of friends that is having this problem. Even when I use their phones, I cant seem to find an issue.

Again, any advice is greatly appreciated.

IPhone :: Proximity Sensor Malfunction

Jul 13, 2010

I've noticed that when I talk on my left ear (which is how I always talk), I have CRAZY problems with the proximity sensor. I cannot go through even ONE call without either putting them on speakerphone, hanging up, going into contacts or dialing numbers by accident.However, when talking on my right ear, no problems at all it seams. I don't know why but it's annoying as I can't talk on my right ear, it just doesn't feel right and I'm not used to it.What have your guys' experiences been with this?

LG G4 :: Power Button And Proximity Sensor

Jan 20, 2016

I have an LG G4 since December 2015 and like many people I found out that "Double tap" to wake the device does not always work.So, I ditched this feature and used only the power button to wake the device.The problem is that even the power button does not always wake the device, many times, a second push being needed to successfully wake the phone.I even called LG support and scheduled a visit to the service center.

Today I think I found the reason why the power button does not always work, at least for my device.I usually leave my G4 with the front facing down, on the desk.When I hear a notification alert or the phone rings, I grab the phone and press the power button while it is still facing down on the desk. Many times in this situation the phone will not wake up.So I started thinking it has something to do with the proximity sensor.To test this, I covered the whole top of the phone (front side) with my palm and pressed the power button. No matter how many times I would press it, the phone will not wake up. At this moment, I will start distancing my palm from the phone while pressing the button every second.Only after the palm is at a considerable distance from the proximity sensor would the phone wake up.I thought about a feature in Android "prevent accidental wake up" but Marshmellow does not have this feature or I could not find it in Settings.

I tried searching the web for other G4 users having the same problem, but found none. Found a couple of posts about the button being defective and a couple of posts about screen protector causing the screen to not wake up after a call or interfering with taps on screen.

So the question is: It is normal for the phone to NOT wake up using the power button if the proximity sensors detects something close to the phone, like the surface of the desk?I could understand "Double tap" not working while proximity sensor detects something and that is why I am not using that feature anymore, but power button?It is working as intended? It is only my device?

Xperia Z3 :: Any Way To Disable The Proximity Sensor?

Jul 19, 2015

 So I cracked my phone a while ago, had the screen replaced at a local place and the screen looks fine, the phone functions almost 100% perfectly. 
 
The thing that bugs me is that the phone seems to have the proximity sensor always on. When I answer a call, the screen turns black, and I am unable to turn the screen on until the call ends. I would rather just have the proximity sensor completely off. I just want my screen to be on when I'm on calls, or at least able to turn on with the power button.
