Light sensor doesn't detect phone is against my face

Hi there! I recently got my screen repaired and the sensor that detects the phone is near my face and turns off the screen doesn't appear to be working. The result is that the screen is still on and I mistakenly mute myself! How should I look at repairing this?

Is this a good question?

the front camera contains the proximity sensor, so replacing the whole front camera flex should sort your issue out. :-)
