    That's your proximity sensor so you don't accidentally touch buttons , and screen should go back on when phone is pulled away from your ear

    Welcome to Android Central! Is it turning off immediately after connecting the call, even if the phone isn't against your ear? If so, make sure the proximity sensor isn't blocked by anything, like a poorly fitting screen protector or case.

    Hi,thanks for your help guys.Yes,the screen goes off immediately after starting a call,even if the phone is not near face.You were right it was a poorly fitted screen protector,it was quite thick plastic,and covered over the sensor area.
    I changed to a different type of screen protector that leaves the sensor uncovered,and now the problem has gone!
    Cheers
