Unhappy [Q] A problem in proximity sensor

Hello
I have a big problem, unfortunately the display screen of my new nexus 5 was crashed over the proximity sensor, so my proximity sensor always on, when I am making calls my screen is off and i can't do any thing even hang up the call , so how can i disable my proximity sensor.
My phone isn't rooted

I don't think you can disable it, not without root anyways. Can you still turn the screen on with the power button?

See if any of the suggestions here work for you.

Also try this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...4ucz.screenoff


All of these things were found by searching Google for 2 minutes. Sometimes it can be a better option than here for unique things.

Good Luck.

Get it fixed by technician. Disabling it is only a temporary fix.
