making a call on lumia 520

[ Edited ]

i've had my 520 for a week. when making a call the screen goes blank, so i cant end the call. sometimes i can hear the person at the other end, sometimes i cant. is this problem unique?

    the screen comes back sometime after the call has ended.

 

    to make matters worse i find that the nearest nokia service point is 60 miles away. i live in one of the largest connurbations in the uk, so i find that pretty poor!

Re: making a call on lumia 520

This is common caused by something blocking the proximity sensor at the top of the display next to the "Nokia". If you recently installed a screen protector or a new case, make sure it isn't obscuring the sensor. Dust particles can also block the sensor.

Re: making a call on lumia 520

Hi aveo,

Welcome to the Nokia Support Discussions!

Can you further elaborate on your concern? Does this happen to all of your calls? Is there any error message? What steps have you tried to solve this? Please note that you need to have a cellular signal to be able to make a call. Aside from that, you also need to have enough load/balance to do this.
