Auto rotate on home screen stopped working


Saturday 10th of September 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a Motorola Droid 3 (Verizon) with slide out keyboard.I've had it for about 2 months. My home screen auto rotated until I downloaded a popular cooking website app. That app did not auto rotate and following that installation, the home screen didn't either. I have uninstalled the app & restarted the phone. No fix.I have unchecked auto rotate & restarted the phone; then checked auto rotate and restarted the phone. No fix.I have researched this and other forums for a fix. There are claims that using the car port causes a problem... I don't have a car, so never used this feature.There are claims that Google updates have caused it. Then in another forum Motorola states this is the design of the phone ... that confuses me. Is the design to have the home screen auto rotate for a little while and then just stop? All other apps that I use regularly still auto rotate.This is an issue that's been plaguing the phone for more than 2 years and I find it unusual that new versions (Droid 3 for example) come out and the problem persists. If anyone has advice, a suggested fix, a reason

Auto rotate stopped working


Monday 24th of September 2012 / androidforums.com
My tablet's auto rotate stopped functioning yesterday (and yes, I checked the switch). I have had the tablet since December 2011, and upgraded to ICS in May or June (I forget when exactly). I've heard there can be various reasons for this, so I am open to some suggestions before I try to send the thing in for repairs. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way to tell if it's a dead sensor or somehow related to software/apps?Thanks,CJSF

Auto screen rotate has stopped working!!


Friday 26th of April 2013 / androidtablets.net
Hi, the auto rotate stopped working. In settings, I verified that the "auto-rotate" feature was checked. I even unchecked and rechecked the feature with no success. So, when I rotate the phone 90 degrees the screen content does not shift and widen. I verified the auto rotate feature does not work with photos, text messaging, browser, etc. Please advise on what steps I should use to correct the problem I have restarted and ive even done a full phone reset ive even tried it in safe mode and no joy! please help

Auto Rotate of home screen stopped working


Saturday 22nd of January 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a rooted G2 with a custom ROM with Sense. Yesterday when I would turn the phone into landscape mode the screen would auto rotate. Now it doesnt unless I open the keyboard. I read somewhere that it has to do with the Car Panel and that once you run the car panel it will stop the home screen from auto rotating without the keyboard open. Is there a way to fix this? I installed an Auto Rotate Switch app but that didnt work. I wanted to remove the car panel but android wouldnt let me uninstall it. I really dont want to reflash but I guess I will have to if I cant get it to work again

Auto rotate stopped working


Wednesday 22nd of August 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
I've had my N7 for about a month now and last night the auto rotate stopped working. Device is stock, and auto rotate is not turned off. Asus tech support was painfully unhelpful and I'm really bummed. Any suggestions?Thanks.

Display auto rotation stopped working


Friday 18th of October 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So, switching from Gaxaxy SIII to LGOGP and LOVE the big screen. SIII looks small now....however...after about 10 mintues futzing with the phone, the display auto rotate stopped working. Looked it up and there appeared to be a fix by putting the phone in 'ODIN' Mode (power down>press vol down, home and power button at same time>removing the battery while in ODIN mode and power up)...but this kinda gave me the willys when phone wanted me to hard restart. I didn't want to reload all my crap including my work VPN email/cal sync. Another option that worked for some was to actually drop the phone from like 5 inches....not highly recommended in my book. Here's another option if you don't want to do the ODIN thing and have to reload all your apps and data again, or drop your phone on your granite countertop..... I just downloaded "Rotation Locker" from the play store. It's free. Locks the display in Portrait or Landscape mode, and also has an Auto setting. I also noticed that in Auto mode it works for a couple of times before the little software devil inside my phone catche
