Replace earpiece assembly
Doesn’t get much simpler than this! Easy.
Fixed it. As weird as it sounds, the brightness sensor fell off and now it works fine (minus the brightness obviously). So you guys were right lol
Why not replace it then
Not my main phone and auto brightness isn’t a big concern for me
Brightness sensor? The proximity one? The one that makes the screen go black when you put the phone to your face on a call?
That's a typical symptom of a damaged or faulty ep/prox flex cable. If when replaced issues persist, check the port on the board. Even the tiniest bit of debris can prevent a complete connection.
other than replace the front camera/ear speaker cable?
replace the earpiece. it’s a pretty common issue, idk why it appears but quite simple to fix.
Replace the earpiece speaker
Bad proximity sensor
