Re: Proximity sensor issue SIMPLEST EVER solution

Xperia Z Ultra C6833 - Android 5.0.2

 

Try if this incredibly simple method will work for you:

 

1) Go into SERVICE TEST - proximity sensor. Your sensor is shown as ON continuously?

2) Get a small piece of black electric isolation tape (10x10mm). Glue it directly on the spot of the proximity sensor.

 Your sensor is now shown as "OFF" in the SERVICE menu? Lucky you. Remove the Tape. Sensor ON? Your life is saved.

3) OK, here comes the fine tuning. Get a punch plier. Choose one of the little punches, around 2mm. Perforate a tiny circle of 2mm diameter of the black tape. Positioning it on the left lens of the double-lensed proximity sensors, it will give you the chance to test if the sensor will react if you touch it with your finger.

If the sensor is continuously on, cut the piece of tape some smaller with a cutter knife or a sharp scissor. This all can be done while the sensor test routine is running on your phone, no need to reboot etc.

If you are patient and work meticulously, you will be able to receive full function of the sensor with ear on / ear off to the phone.

4) I placed the tape spot directly into the left side of the cutout for the proximity sensor of my additional screen protector foil.

 Works like a charm.

Good luck!

Happened to mine, if you don't want the factory reset, simply lie the phone on its back. Screen up, it lights up, not ideal but functions can be used
