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

First important information:
What are we talking about? iOS? Android?
Second:
Remain the "menu" and "report" button highlighted too?

My screen goes black or dim (IOS)

When I was using IOS 8.1.3 - the screen goes dim when the phone gets too hot. So I have to cool down the phone and do a hard reset and things get back to normal.

Now with the IOS 8.2 - everything is working well so far.

Lets keep our fingers crossed.

What you're describing is something totally different compared to the original problem...
What you're talking about is a problem, of which I heard until now, is regarding the iOS 8 betas only.
Please delete waze, reboot your phone (putting home + lock button until phone restarts) and then reinstall the app from the App Store. And tell me if it's ok afterwards.

After upgrading to Version 3.8.1 for iOS this seemed to have plague many users and there has not been a solution up to date except for Hard Reset. Also the phone feels hot during this period.

Some have offered a solution to uninstall and re install but the problem persists. Does anyone have a permanent or easier solution other than a Hard Reset - please share.

This has happened to me a couple of times. What needs to be done is to do a hard reset of your I-Phone and after that everything would be back to normal.
