HTC Eris :: White Widow Proximity Sensor Not Working In-call
Jul 13, 2010
Anyone know if there is a way to fix this? Not being able to bring the screen back up during a call pretty much makes it impossible to call any automated line, or even delete voicemail messages.I really love this ROM but this particular issue is causing me quite a headache
Ok so Iv'e tried and tried and tried and tried to get the transparent theme with metamorph and i just cant do it. I can get some themes to work and the others not so much. So i went exactly by the directions and I still cant do it! Is there a way i could have it in a zip and just flash it like the others do for themes? Please help, im a huge WW fan and love this theme!
Somehow I keep managing to hang up on calls/call other people during calls. The proximity sensor does work but i think I must inadvertently move the sensor away from the screen, activating the screen. Is there an app that requires the screen to be unlocked during a call when the screen re-activates?
So people have been messing with my wave, I thought I could trust them but i guess not. To work around this issue I decided to create my own site.This is where you will find all releases from me, previous releases such as the 3D Gallery, newer one such as White Widow 4.1 and 4.2, and future releases-Ive been looking into application development a little bit too.
I have been following this ROM ever since it popped up. I am a giant fan of this ROM. I thought it may be a good idea to get a single thread started to discuss things related to WW. Long story short, I PM'd andrizoid to get his blessing and decided to throw up a thread. Let's all try and post here and that way we will have the best chance of helping everyone who wants to try it out.For now WW lives here but be on the look out for a new site soon.
I just upgraded to White Widow 3.1, and I love it except for some of the stock HTC stuff I really liked like the keyboard, dialer, and camera (the droid one sucks imo). I followed the proper steps for the keyboard (put it in the system/app folder) and it works perfectly. No such luck for the camera, and dialer. Does anyone know why? Are there any OTHER HTC apps I can use, or how to put these ones on there?
I'm running White Widow 4.6 with Google Apps installed and JIT on. Not all of my FB contacts are syncing with my phone contacts. For example, my sister is not linked to any FB profile when she should be. The names match up. Most of the people are, but some aren't. I can't find a way to link it manually to her FB profile. All of my contacts sync'd fine with the stock OS. Anybody else have this issue? Do you have a solution? I had the same problem in KaosFroyo v23 and never found a solution.
I bought a xolo q700 recently ,n i did an official software update, now proximity sensor isnt working and i dont know if it is due to the update or is it a hardware issue.. The proximity sensor is shown when I checked hardware with some app, but its not giving values... just showing waiting
Is anyone having this issue? Friend of mine has the D2. Says the display does not turn off when next to her face and registers any touches.I don't have a D2, so I don't know what the phone options/settings might be.
Is there any way to disable it? I put a body skin on it and its barely off center off but its enough to cover the sensor so when i'm in a call its constantly black and i can't do anything . I would just take the skin off and put it back on but i was stupid enough to put it over my invisible shield and im to paranoid to put any more water on my phone and wait another 24 hours. So is there anyway to disable it or do anything?
I have searched the forums and cannot find the answer. I need to know if there is a way this sensor was disabled through software. My sensor quit working over the last few days and I cannot find any settings that will reset it. Ive tried many reboots to include pulling the battery for about 15 minutes. The only thing out of the usual the phone has been subjected to recently is 10 25 degree weather for a little over an hour while I tried to let its gps find itself.(Eris users Buy a REAL gps and Ill save the rant)Oh, and none of the only three additional apps have been installed in the last few weeks. So someone please save me a trip to VZW.
I got an Otterbox (IMPACT) case for my wife's Droid Eris. I have verified that when the case is on, the proximity sensor does not operate at all. Take case off, works fine. Case is on correctly (there's not a whole lot of ways to have it on wrong). Pressing it harder onto my head (which one shouldn't have to do) or holding it farther away don't help, either. Does the other Otterbox case do this?
I bought and installed a new screen (digitizer) in my Eris. The install went very well but now the proximity sensor doesn't seem to work properly. Most times when I place a call the screens goes blank and won't respond to any button inputs, Once the other party hangs up I get the screen back. But even this is erratic at times, not often, with the screen staying on all the time.
I installed Screebl Lite to force the screen on all the time and it works most of the time but seems to have a hard time figuring out the proximity sensor too.
Is there something I could have done to screw up the sensor when I took the phone apart? Everything else is working fine.
I have a HTC Hero here, and when I tried to get the list of available sensors on the device by calling ((SensorManager) getSystemService (Context.SENSOR_SERVICE)) .getSensorList(Sensor.TYPE_ALL); I get only the following sensors: D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: BMA150 3-axis Accelerometer, handle=0 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 3-axis Magnetic field sensor, handle=1 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Orientation sensor, handle=2 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Temperature sensor, handle=3 According to the specs, there should be a light and a proximity sensor on the Hero, and I've seen it in action (the automatic screen brightness adjustment) - so at least the ambient light sensor is definitely there. My question is then, why doesn't the getSensorList return for me the light and the proximity sensors?
Where abouts is the sensor that detects if you are holding the phone up to your ear and dims the screen? Need to modify my wife's case (like what I did with her old iPhone case) as it doesnt turn the screen off, or if it does it doesnt turn it back on afterwards!
I had real problems until with my phone until I loaded the proximity sensor. I had a little trouble getting it to work but when it did, it remedied the one thing that I disliked about the Hero. I loaded 2.1 yesterday and generally I like it EXCEPT I cannot get the proximity sensor app to work again. Has any one else had this issue? Suggestions?
Anyone still having problems with the black screen? Have downloaded and installed the ota update and if anything the problem is worse! Seems ok on incoming calls but if I make an outgoing call the screen goes blank and the only way to reactivate is to hit the power key. This is starting to sound like faulty hardware to me. I read that the ota update was supposed to sort this! Any advise would be appreciated as other than this really annoying problem the phone is great!
First of all, I love my Desire, but there's something bothering me that's been costing me some money and trouble: Whenever I accidentaly call someone, I press the back button thinking it hangs up the call. But then I realise it's still calling! So I try to bring up the notification bar, though whenever I try to place my finger near the top of the phone, it automatically turns of the screen. After 20 seconds of trying, I've already lost money and afterwards people call back or message me why I've been calling them. Anyone else had this problem yet?
Is there any app, flag or something similar that can be used to bypass the proximity sensor in the HTC Legend? I mean something that makes the screen stay on all the time during a call, neglecting the proximity sensor, as if it is in the speaker mode (but without the speaker on, I don't like people listening my conversations.My problem is the proximity sensor not working. I purchased an unlocked Legend a month ago in the Manchester (UK) airport free shop. I live in Brazil and travel to USA frequently.The phone is under warranty, but for me is too far to send it to Europe for fixing (no maintenance for Legend in Brazil and even in USA, if I knew it I would never buy this thing.)When in a call, the screen and keys go off and there is no way to bring them back.The sensor seems to "think" that the phone is near my head all the time immediately after a call is made or received. Only way to bring the screen and keys back is soft reset even after the end of the call.I already tried all the typical solutions and I don't use any kind of cover over the device, and by comparison with one that works I am sure that there is a problem with the sensor. I just don't want to stay more than a month without the phone and spend nearly the same that I spent in the phone in transportation to send it for fixing, so if there is something just to bypass the sensor it will be much better for me.
