Screen Blanking Out When In-Call

5 posts in this topic

Any time I make a call my screen blanks out within a second or so. I then need to press the home button to bring it back so that I can access the keypad.

Does anyone know how to stop the screen turning off during a call or to extend the time before it does?

Thanks

There are a few options and it's trial and error to see which works for you depending on ROM. Not sure which worked for me now, sorry can't remember:

1. new app which uses g-sensor and only works when in call (I haven't tried yet): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=488991

2. Schaps Advanced Config: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.p...amp;postcount=2 or http://www.touchxperience.com/

3. Regedit (backup settings before changing just in case):

* HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL\BatteryTimeoutInCall 0

* HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL\BatterySuspendTimeoutInCall 0

* HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL\EnableFastDormantDisplayDuringCall 0

* HKCU\ControlPanel\Phone\Sleep 0

* HKCU\ControlPanel\Backlight\LightSensorPollingEnable 0

4. No Sleep.cab : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=413798

There may be other options.

If you are talking about using the phone hands free then taking the stylus out also stops it from doing so, but when pressed to your ear there is something sensor-wise that prevents this from working quite as expected.

It may be a feature from HTC so that the police dont see your ear lit up like a christmas tree when you use your phone whilst driving.

Or it could be a bug

It uses the light sensor or a combination of that and the gsensor to blank the screen when holding it next to your ear so you don't accidentally press buttons with your ear/cheek. Some people have said if you make the call with the phone flat on a table and lift it 10seconds after the call connected the backlight stays on.
