I have exactly the same issue - LG G2 D802 screen turn off and goes blank
Thanks to @Bam9
, who suggested to clear the proximity sensor from the outside and squeeze the top left corner of the phone, I tried to clean it and put some stress on it - and it worked!
Another issue which I also have and is also caused by the proximity sensor is that the screen stays on and the touch buttons
in the dialer aren't responsive
- which means we can't switch to speaker, add a call, mute, etc... However, the main touch / navigation button (home, back and menu buttons in the bottom of the screen) are responsive, in addition to the status bar.
(This issue was already reported by @athorax here
In both of these situations the only quick way to end a call is to pull down the status and notifications bar and hang up from there.
I have a glass screen protector (which don't block the proximity sensor), and I am rooted and using CyanogenMod 11 ROM.
I used ioroot
to root and AutoRec
, which comes with TWRP 184.108.40.206, to install CyanogenMod ROM.
However, going back to stock ROM (in my case, LG G2 D802, it's D80220C) won't help since the issue still exists.
What I'm sure is that it was pretty much okay in the beginning, and the situation became worse and worse - occurring randomly, until it arrived to a situation in which I can't use the phone properly during conversation.
Now that I discovered that I can put some stress on the proximity sensor it seems that I have a hardware rather than a software issue.

i figured my proximity sensor near the ear piece was dirty and causing much less light then there actually was. at the time there wast a firmware update ( which I have now gotten) and was desperately seeking help.
I finally got the firmware update VS98012B and it seems to have solved the issue I ( and you) was having.
So for you it was a software issue?
Is your sensor working until today with no issues?

I immediately rooted so dont know if issue was there before root.
I'm also rooted and with TWRP.
Did it happened before you rooted?
Did you used ioroot
to root andAutoRec
to have TWRP?
You see, I'm really trying to find the similarities between us all in order to solve this issue...

We already have KitKat based firmware update. For me it's D80220C
For you it might be already D80220D. Use this link
to check your version, and replace the IMEI in the end of it with your IMEI.

If I remove the SIM card and place a call, the phone gives me the standard "Emergency Calls Only" and goes back to the dial pad.
Has anyone else had this issue? I tried a factory restore with no luck.
When you place the call you do hear that the call is made?
If so - then you have exactly the same issue.
What is your model, what ROM are you using, and did you root your phone?
