    Hi Folks
    can any of you point me in the right direction....

    I want to adjust or disable the proximity sensor.

    At the moment when I hit the call button the screen goes black even if its not by my ear....this is annoying when u want to use the number pad (say with a call centre) or when using the internal speaker as a hands free device...

    So need to find out is this normal...and where and what adjutments/settings are there....on this phone.

    Thanks for your help and comments

    Hello Fritz, welcome to the forums at Android Central! 🙋

    Some people had a similar issue with the GS4, there was a thread about it.
    I remember most of them, if not all, on that thread fixed it by blowing air from a can to the speaker grill by the sensors. Heck, there even were some people that had it fixed after using the vacuum!

    Try that trick with a can of compress air and let us know if it works for you. It might be software or a defect.
    Did you always have this problem?

    Whey Hey! Well done Android Central! V aggravating screen going dark without even putting the phone to my ear: Your suggestion of blowing on the speaker grill worked a treat. Who would have ever thought of that? Not me, anyway! Good work. Thank you for taking away frustration.
