    Yea ambient display is not working after sometime. I think the battery optimization is killing the service responsible for the ambient display.

    started experiencing this issue after update to 9.5.6 (GM1917 Model). Just did the sensor calibration described above. hoping that fixes it.

    My ambient display finally started to work yesterday after a couple of days of not working. Didn't realize how important it was to me until now.

    After wipe cache/data in the system app called "Ambient Display" this issue remains...
    Sometimes works sometimes no...

    Did Pete Lau not have this problem when he tried his own 7 pro in the last March / April? Or now he's using an S10+ ?!

    So sad and unnerving...

    Guys this is gonna need a software fix from one plus on the ambient issues. I placed my phone in my glove compartment for like a hour while I went running and when I came back I have the ambient issues: no tap to wake or gestures to open apps. The sensor is off somewhat when the phone is placed in dark spaces. Someone suggested going in a well lit area or shining a flashlight on the phone and all the features works fine but as soon as I went back in a dim lighted area the issue came back. One Plus we need an update to fix this issue. Thanks.

    I did the sensor calibration and that worked but One Plus needs to fix this issue ASAP and not the phone's owner.

    So try this go to settings - apps - systems apps and find ambient display and clear the cache then apply the engineering fix and restart. That's what I had to do in the end and have not had an issue at all since ...that was 4 days ago

    All fixes, cache and engineering mode, only work for a day or two and then stop. This needs a proper fix.

    Agreed, this happened on my device today (running 9.5.6 21AA) and I did the engineering fix to resolve. @OnePlus... Any news on a permanent fix?

    The calibration trick seems to last me a couple of days, and it stops working again. The past two times I've verified that the infrared proximity sensor appears to be stuck thinking there's something right on it. Wiping the area or trying to tap a few times in an attempt to get it to read different had no effect. The recalibration does unstick it. Not sure why it gets stuck.

    I'm continuing to have problems with the ambient display even after the 9.5.5 update that was supposed to fix it. In my case the ambient display stops working when the phone is charging under a light source and reaches 100%.
