Title:

Proximity Sensor after screen replacement

Text:

Hello!

I just had my LG G5's screen replaced after it got cracked. However, now as soon as I dial a call, the screen goes black (locks itself). Similarly, if I am making a call on whatsapp, as soon as I dial the call the Whatsapp screen locks itself!

I understand that this might have something to do with a proximity sensor? The person who repaired the screen for me has no idea about how to fix this unfortunately so I am a bit stuck here.

Anyone else faced similar issues? I have tried resetting the phone as well as calibrating the sensors.

Would appreciate some assistance.

Thank you.
