Sounds like the common issue of reports causing the screen to dim and it doesn't return. It's a known issue.

The forum definitely supports adding attachments. But there's been dozens of posts about it with screenshots, so it's not necessary.

I am updating in this thread as it was the first to report the screen dimming/going black issue on iOS.

According to Waze, this issue has been resolved with a server-side fix. No sure what they did, or if they just "turned something off" so the app won't try to do the pop-up spotlight or what. No details have been provided.

I get this behavior. I submitted screen caps and logs yesterday, right after it occured, and according to support, they (the devs) are looking at it.

I've have the same problem - The screen goes black just after a report pops up. Waze is unusable afterwards. I depend on it every day. iPhone 5, IOS 6

My screen goes black, too, on my iPhone when I've opened it and simply rotate the phone from Portrait to Landscape. That seems to be the only time it does it for me...but it always comes back, then all is good. No issues after that little 'black out'.
