My iphone screen goes blank during a conversation

When I am talking the screen goes blank and I cannot shut offf the call when i am finished. The screen does not respond to touch at all. When I push the shut off button it seems to reset the screen but the screen flashes on and then off so fast i can't shut off the call. i have to push the shut off button several times to get it to come back on.

    I have a similar problem, when the phone is to my ear the touch screen remains active, sometimes this causes issues by my ear touching the mute or speaker button on the screen, when i then move the phone to cancel the mute/speaker the screen goes blank and I can't get the screen working without ending the call, this is annoying if the person on the other end of the phone can't hear me.

    I have the same exact problem both with my phone accidently muting and the screen going blank. so far the solution I have found is covering the light sensor at the top just above the speaker and this will bring the call back. It is like my light sensor is working backwards.

If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken proximity sensor or a broken logic board. There is an iphone repair website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.

IPhone screen will NOT go blank during calls


Sorry but your proximity sensor needs replacement. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll give you a replacement. If they don't there are third party iPhone Repair Services that can fix it for you. There are also free iPhone Repair guide that show you how to fix it yourself.

Iphone 3GS- only get the apple loading screen.


If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Blank screen


Try a restore. Hold down home and power together until screen goes black. While holding down home button, plug it into your computer. iTunes should now recognize your iPhone and ask you to restore.
Hope this helps!

Iphone screen is black


Do you have a protective screen cover on the phone, if you do, you may have covered the proximity sensor at the top. MOst screen protectors cover the sensor causing them to turn off the screen during a call and not allowing it to come back on.

If you do have one on, take it off and try it without.

If this is the case, a Belkin screen protector tends to be the best one because it has the proximity sensor cut out of the plastic

Hope this helps

Screen goes blank


Maybe the setting of your video display was change to higher setting, and your screen cannot handle the said setting.

When a "safe mode" message appears during opeing, select that options, then at the desktop right click your mouse, chose properties, then setting, then change the screen resolution to lower range.
