Proximity Sensor Problem
Like many of us, I managed to kill a digitizer on my HTC Aria. Replaced the blasted thing, and now I find my proximity sensor is really sensitive. It's locked in proximity mode (Z-devicetest shows distance 0) in normal conditions.
If I pull off the digitizer, so the prox sensor has a clear path in front of it, it goes out of proximity state and Z-devicetest shows the distance as 1 (and the display works properly during calls, speakerphone works, etc) ...
If I slowly move the tip of my finger towards the prox. sensor, digitizer still removed, Z-devicetest shows it flip from 1 to 0 (out of prox to in prox) as my finger gets within ~2 inches.
So it seems the prox. sensor is working but is too sensitive.
Is this the normal failure mode of a CM3602 prox sensor (read: i dropped it, and not only broke the digizer, but took out the prox sensor too!) .. or, is there some sort of calibration i need to do?
Anyone have a USA source of the CM3602? My usual suppliers digikey and mouser don't carry this component..
*curses self* shoulda listened to my friend who warned me this phone is real easy to bust
