Sorry to say this,This phone is named for this bug.This is a bug which is present in Samsung Memoir...The light sensor and the proximity sensor is being linked together in this phone.These two sensor works together based on their sensitivity.

But we can still solve this issue but it does not give 100% success to all.You have to change the proximity sensor settings in the phone.The proximity sensor is being located near the top of the phone where you keep the ear.Once you take it to the ear the accelerometer will detect the change in phone and the phone detects when it is in calling state and turns on the proximity sensor to detect it..So when you take it to ear or your body.the phone keypad will get locked and to save the battery the lights will get off.

Steps to increase the proximity sensor settings:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Dial ##77647269700 or try this #77647269700
It will ask for service code:Six zeros type '000000'
Now scroll down to field test and get into proximity call.
Take the palm or finger and show i near the holes 1/2 or 2 inch
away and press yes
Show it until you hear sound and say successful message.
Do this until your proximity detection less.

Hope this will solve it.If still problem persist take it to nearest service center.and ask him for the proximity settings.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further

thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
