I have a nearly 2 year old Moto E 2nd Gen. with some screen problems. The first, and most annoying problem, is that the screen will shut off during phone calls. It works fine every other time, except during a phone call. This isn't a problem if the person picks up, but if I get voice mail or a menu system, I have no way to hang up or enter numbers. I try reorienting it, pressing the power button, and holding down the power button, which sometimes, but inconsistently works. I have done a factory reset of the phone, but that didn't change anything. Does anyone have any suggestions?
The second problem, which I can live with, is that there is visible distortion on the screen. I can see bands of horizontal lines. The attached photo is an example.
I have about $40 left on my tab, so I was hoping that you generous people in the community forum might be able to help me with suggestions as to whether to fix the phone (and if so how) or get a new one (and if so what kind).
