Dear support team,
i had a serious problem in my device galaxy mega 6.3 I9205

i faced a serious problem, that the screen go black while a phone call is in progress,
and there is no way to light up the screen except after ending the call,
it seems that there is a problem regarding the sensors of the phone,
especially the problem is extended to the flip cover , the screen should react according to the cover is put on it or not,

so please help me, because i couldn't use my phone while a phone call is in progress...

No one helps I've installed program that shows proximity sensor values and it's look like sensor in my mega doesn't works correctly. It's recognizing "near" all the time and don't response for any actions. Maybe sensor is broken. I've tried to change sensor values, but it doesn't help anyway. I have probably lost warranty after flashing CM11 and really don't know what to do now

Sorry for my poor english...

Flash a custom ROM/Kernel and see if the sensors are fixed. If they aren't then it might be a bug or hardware failure

i9100 proximity sensor doesn't work
Hi to all!
I have the issue with proximity sensor and didn't manage to find a solution in other similar threads!
The matter is that it is always stay as Released.
In the same time in test screen (*#0*#) there are changing reading for PROXIMITY parameter from 2 up to 240 with no ADC parameter at all. Please look for screenshots. PROXIMITY parameter changes its value when I move my finger in front of the sensor, but as I can understand Android doesn't recognize it because of ADC absence.
Moreover I tried to change proximity sensor for working one (from another phone), but it shows the same as mine (with no ADC readings).
After all I think it is software problem, but I don't know how to solve it. I flashed different firmwares (now it is XWMSE NeatROM v.6.4), but nothing helped.
Please assist! Thanks!
