Note 4 - proximity sensor failure (gasket, anyway) - any way to fix without replacing the entire screen ?
My Note 4 is having issues with the proximity sensor, up near the earpiece. Apparently, there are two sensors, and a gasket separating them, and with the earpiece so close, dust can get in and cause the sensor to go crazy. The gasket can also be displaced, which causes the sensor to malfunction.
From what I read, you can take a small piece of electrical tape, poke two holes, and create a new gasket to separate the sensors. Unfortunately, this requires removal of the screen, and that destroys the connection.
My screen is completely intact, and I'd rather not a) destroy it just to install a gasket, and b) send it back to AT&T to have them replace it.
Any other options ? I've tried canned air through the speaker grille to remove any dust, but to no avail.
