Hi there, I think my DHD's proximity sensor is not working, i.e. screen is not turning off during calls resulting in disconnections. I installed Android Sensor Box from play store. Its indicating that proximity sensor is present but always at 9 cm even I covered the top portion of the screen. What do you guys suggest, is it a faulty sensor? I am using latest cm10.1 nightly.

Smile Easy Way Out!
Possible calibration procedure:

1. Put both values high (will show FAR).
2. Cover sensor with finger.
3. Lower High threshold till it says NEAR.
4. Lower Low threshold by a notch or 2.
5. Test behavior.

Different person will guide you different ways.....that's their way to explain,no offence here.And sometimes different ROM could also requires different calibration,best way to do it is mentioned above.

Example: I'm on AoCP my own custom way made look of 4.2.2 kitkat*
I've OK Google working and Everything as stated in KitKat.But obvious im on 4.2.2 instead of 4.4.2!
In this ROM ive sets Lower @ 13 and Higher @15 but it could be different by user to user.

Thanks.
