Proximity Sensor NOT WORKING ...

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I dropped my Huwaei Ascend G300 a few days ago and now I notice that my proximity sensor is not working so when I called somebody the screen would just go off and never come back on until the call was picked by the other person.

This is quite annoying so could anyone please tell me what I can do to get rid of this ?

Thank You

You can completely disable the proximity sensor, If you are rooted, then you can download build.prop editor from the play store and then change this line:

gsm.proximity.enabled=true 
to:
gsm.proximity.enabled=false

Hope that fixes it :)

However the build.prop change is only usable on stock based ROMs, so don't try it on CyanogenMod or any other ROM which isn't stock.

I installed the build.prop editor and searched but found no ' gsm.proximity.enabled ' entry.

The only thing I could find with the word proximity in it was ' ro.config.hw_proximity

What do I do next ?

P.S: I am using Stock +

Just change ro.config.hw_proximity to 0/false (depending on the variable).

So If it is like this:

 ro.config.hw_proximity=true
change it to:
 ro.config.hw_proximity=false
Otherwise if it looks like this:
 ro.config.hw_proximity=1
Then change it to this:
 ro.config.hw_proximity=0

That should hopefully disable it :)

Edit: sorry for my bad code tags, it's very hard to type code in tapatalk! :wacko:
