Screen goes black during call
Tuesday 20th of September 2011
I've had my Bionic for a week. For the past two days, my screen keeps going black when making a call. Note, it goes black when I hit connect while the phone is in my hand, not when I put it to my ear so I'm sure it's not a proxmity sensor issue. I have to hit the power button to get it to come up again. Also, when I pull the battery cover off, there's a white circle with a red X over the SD card. Does this mean the phone somehow got wet? I've had it NO where near anything liquid but I did install a Skinomi screen protector (wet install.) I pulled the battery first and left it out overnight. I'm thinking of returning the phone due to multiple issues (mainly the crappy camera and camcorder) but I don't want Verizon saying I got the phone wet! Help! Anyone else experiencing black screen issues when placing calls or know what the red X means? It also seems difficult to disconnect a call and I can't make Skype video work. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Phone goes Black during call

Just curious if anyone had similar issues. When I place a call the screen goes black after 2 seconds and repeats the pattern if I click the side. I have received 2 different phones with the same issue. Do i have bad luck or is it the phone? Is there a fix for it?
Screen goes black during speaker phone call and can't turn back on
Monday 30th of January 2012
I love this phone. However, when I make a call and use speaker phone, the screen goes black. Fortunately, the call continues ok. However, I can't find any way to wake up the screen. The only thing I can do is push the on off button. Is there a way to wake up the screen during the call if desired??Thanks,This forum is great.Ted
Display Black During Call
Thursday 24th of October 2013
When I dial a number or answer a call the screen goes black once the call connects. Predictable given you don't want your cheek to hang up your call. However, I can't access the phone until after the call has disconnected.+ can't use dial pad to choose 1 for English or 2 for Spanish haha+ can't even hang up the call so if the person on the other side of the call doesn't hang up/disconnect my phone will be stuck on a black screen until they hang up. Even long pressing the power button doesn't do anything. + basically my phone is rendered unusable until they call is disconnected. Anyone have this problem and/or have a solution?

Hope I picked the right forum for this. Verizon Galaxy Stratosphere phone: Screen goes black during call and won't come back when away from my face. The only way to return the phone screen is to open the keyboard slide and close it. I don't use the keyboard slide either. Any tricks to cure this? Thanks, Dennis
S4 black screen during call, proximity sensor works fine. Ideas?
Sunday 06th of April 2014
When I get an incoming call, screen stays on until I place to ear or wave hand over proximity sensor then it goes black as expected. When I remove from ear so phone front is clear from anything, the screen stays black. I can hit the home button and the screen comes on. In Call Settings I have the option "Turn off screen during calls" selected. I have two other S4's both work properly, screen black when placed near ear or hand over screen, turns back on when removed from such. Any ideas why one stays black yet proximity test *#0*# works as expected? I just ran CPU-Z which shows the proximity sensor. When first run, the proximity sensor status shows blank. When I put my hand over phone the status changes to 0cm. When I remove my hand it stays saying 0cm.
