Hi John, easiest would be to disable your Power Management. Look for the screen or display settings and disable that so that your screen is not switched off.

Remember to enable it again to conserve your battery life.

Hope this helps.

Hello Alexis, in the bottom left hand corner is a cog icon that will take you to the settings menu. From here select system and you should see display mode at the top. Change this option to full screen.
If this does not fix the problem select the option to use a windowed full screen option just below.
Hope this works for you.

Hi, I bought Nokia C7 in January 2011. It's screen goes black completely while making calls (not every time but many times). When I shake my phone that time, it will display the screen for that...


Go into your setting menu and check your screen timeout. If this continues to be an issue, try installing an app called Caffeine, and set your phone as one of the apps that remains awake while in use.

Always light on


Check your display settings. Settings, Phone, Display: Check that Light Timeout is set (I have mine setup for 20 seconds). This should do the trick. If you wish to conserve yet more battery power, set "sleep mode" to on and set a power saver timeout (mine is set to 1 minute). good luck.
