    So I have an odd issue with my Lumia 520 that maybe some people can help me with...I bought the phone in November upgrading from HTC Titan running WP 7.8....well I use my phone, all is well, until I go to turn off the screen...I press the button to turn off the screen and the screen goes black, I can see it is still lit, nothing displaying, but doesn't quite shut off. I know it doesn't shut off, because if I immediately press the power button to light up the screen again, it doesn't show anything until the back-light goes off...this only happens every so often and only lasts seconds, but still can get annoying at times. Has anyone else had this problem? I have tried to remove all applications that I could think of, disabled a lock screen application, but hasn't helped.

    I am running the developer preview on the phone, don't remember if it did it before because I upgraded it almost as soon as I got it.

    Thank you!

    my mom(520 user) complaints about this issue, I couldn't find what the issue was. Hope black update will fix this bug.

    This is normal, Lumia 520 screen remains lit for 4-5 seconds after pressing power button. If you press power button again during this time it will not work!

    this is not normal , my Lumia 920 does not suffer from this so why Lumia 520, there is hole left in the software and may be,black will fix this up.

    This does happen occasionally on my 520. Personally, I don't find it too disturbing. Don't worry about it.

    its a bug, the way you trigger it is by turning the screen of, then on again real quick, basically to avoid the issue, wait a few seconds before trying to turn the screen on again (atleast thats my issue with a L521)

    Im really glad black fixes this. I use my phone alot in the dark and since we don't have such a fancy amoled its kinda ugly. Luckily black is "coming soon" for my country.

    In Amber, the screen used to stay a 1s awake after I've hit the lockscreen button. I just thought that the interface was quicker to react than the display itself.

    its actually an interesting issue, it seems more like the display hangs, when I watch it happen to mine in the dark, I can see it vaguely flicker, as if the software keeps telling it to shut off but it keeps kicking back on
