    Nokia Lumia 800 light sensor broken

    The light sensor on my phone is broken so whenever I get a call the screen just goes black while I am talking and I can't put it on speaker or anything. How can I fix this??

    Hello Kirby,

    When you're at a place where you can see your phone's screen, you could use the method in the tutorial below to turn off automatic adjust brightness level, and manually set it to brightness level you would like instead. I like medium.

    Hope this helps,
