    When I get calls my screen goes black and I can't wake it up to answer calls. It goes back to normal when other person hangs up. It also does it if I call

    Do you have LG phone? Do you have screen protector? and did you update your phone recently?

    I found this (old) thread, http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...one-calls.html
    Though it is old, many people in the internet also suggest that it might be a problem with the proximity sensor and a latest update OR problem with sensor and screen protector. As suggested by many people on that thread, try swiping on the sensor while you call someone or when you receive a call. Hope it works!

    Cheers

    Do you have a screen protector? Some have been known to "block" the proximity sensor and cause it to think it's being held near a face. This will cause it to black out the screen and disable touch controls during calls, even when NOT held near a face or other object.
