Default Proximity sensor issue.

I am having an issue with my phone not reacting correctly to the proximity sensor. When I am in call, the screen shuts off when I put the phone to my face like it is supposed to, however when I remove it from my ear the screen doesn't come back on. I tested the sensor with an app called sensor list, and it is without a doubt working correctly. I have a custom kernel installed. Could that be causing my issue, or is the software just bugged?

I ordered a new digitizer to replace my mildly scratched one and would like to replace the prox switch while I have it apart. does anyone have any clue where I can get a replacement? Or better yet, what is the exact switch I need. I have an old d1 somewhere, can I Frankenstein that into my rezound to make some abomination?

I recommend testing the sensor itself to rule out whether it is a hardware of a software issue. There are many proximity sensor tester apps in the Play Store.

Edit: NVM, it looks like you already did test it. Disregard this post.

This is what part the Elixir app reads on my Rezound; the phone hardware revision B rather than XA if that has any impact (likely not for this simple part, check under the battery to make sure you have a B model phone if you wish):

the op was from a while back, I have since got my sensor to fail the test. Thus I will replace it. I don't want to send my phone in only to be received by someone in a bad mood who will charge me 650 bucks for unlocking my bootloader. And they will send me a refurbished device that will probably have more problems than this one.

Thanks, I will be in touch with them to find a vendor.

Despite the fact that nobody has actually had that happen yet???

So you will void the warranty instead... so if you really break it, you don't have no repair option at all.

This makes more sense... but even then there, it is not 100% you will get a refurbed unit or that you will have problems with what you get.

BTW, my stock unit doesn't turn the display on when you take your face away from the screen. I always have to press one of the volume keys to get the display back on (easier than reaching the power button)
