you can also cut it in half and only cover the proximity sensor (right one).

if you dim the ambilight sensor (left one) the automatic screen brightness won't work properly

This has nothing to do with the connectors when you change the screen the little spacer can go missing that's over the proximity sensor... I use the insulating tape method were you cover it over the two sensors and then with a pin make a tiny hole were both sensors are placed this should sort it out..

I had the same problem, and I bought new LCD screen (because that one had 3 yellow dots) and that fixed my problem without changing proximity sensor.

Maybe try to connect again the same LCD (connectors)

I hope that it is going to work for you :)
