Screen becomes black after released calls

Screen becomes black after calls

My xperia arc is going black after I have received a call.  When the call ends the screen goes black but there are 2 little lights either side of the home button.  The only way to get the phone going again is to remove the battery and restart it all.  

Mty software says it's up to date. 

I looked at solutions on here and, because I'm not very technical, I tried the easiest solution first - "turn off auto rotate". 

Bizarrely this works.  

I can live without it , but is there any way I can have autororate back again?  I assume it's a software problem or something?  I'm hopeless at doing anything technical to my phone!


I also have a problem with phone memory but I'll post that separately!
