Black Screen Issue During Calls On Windows Phone 8

1. If you ever have the black screen problem while making or receiving calls on your Windows Phone 8, press the Power button twice. The screen should blink back to life, but you will have to end the call quickly.

2. This issue is most likely related to the proximity sensor, so make sure that your phone’s screen protector is not covering it. The proximity sensor is located at the top of the front face of your phone, just next to the front-facing camera.

3. Make sure that there is no dirt on the proximity sensor. You can clean it using a soft cotton or use compressed air on the top of the sensor to blow away the dust.

4. Some people have reported that they have found a solution for this problem by pushing on the screen of the phone where the proximity sensor is located. This solution suggests that the problem is a hardware issue.

5. You can ask your carrier for a replacement handset, though some users have had the same problem with multiple phones.
