Galaxy S5 :: Kindle Books Not Rotating - Locked In Landscape Mode?
May 6, 2015
I am running the Kindle App on my Galaxy S5. Suddenly, today, books can be read only in landscape mode and will not rotate back to portrait. The app itself (screen showing available books) rotates fine, as does everything else. It's just that reading a book is locked in landscape mode.
Not sure what happened, but it was working fine the last time I tried it. I've been looking for an "unlock" item for reading in the app, but cannot find one.
How I get auto-rotate (or even manual rotate) back for reading a book?
My 4s suddenly stopped selecting landscape mode when turned. Is this a software or hardware issue. There is a strange icon that has appeared on the upper status bar which shows a lock surrounded by a circle with an arrow. Is this a lock on the orientation feature? If so, how do I restore the phone to normal operation?
I have a couple phones. Well, quite a few. It started when I could not download books to the Turbo. It just put an exclamation point in the title and says sorry, try again later. I try again later for several days, and nothing changes. On the other hand everything works fine on my other phones, and I can log into Amazon no problem. So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Kindle.
This is not a complete uninstall of course since Kindle is pre-installed and unless you root, you're stuck with it. But after I uninstalled the updates it still would not work. So I nuked from orbit by wiping the phone and reinstalling Kindle (well, updating the built-in version). Well, THAT changed it. Now it won't take the password. It allows me to CHANGE the password, and I did that. But even after changing it (successfully it said) and verifying that the new PW worked on another phone and on my laptop, it still won't take it. It says that username/password combination does not exist.
I have a bunch of books in my kindle library and had downloaded a subset of them to my iphone in the kindle app.Â
I was having issues with the iphone, and I ended up doing a backup/hard-reset/restore. Everything came back fine except my downloaded kindle books.Â Actually, when I first opened the kindle app, I saw the previously downloaded books listed in the "device" tab, but they soon disappeared.Â
Where does the kindle app store this info on my phone and why wasn't it saved/restored to/from the backup?Â
I can download those books again from the cloud, so nothing lost, but it is an annoyance - especially if one likes to have lots of books handy.Â
I have downloaded several books from Amazon. They are stored "somewhere" on my zoom. How can I find them? Once I am reading a book that I have downloaded my xoom saves the page where I stopped last but! When I have finished a book and am ready to go to the storage "place" on my xoom where all my Kindle downloads are listed - how do I get there?
I got a Blackberry Torch 9800. I have an issue with the slider (or I think this is the origin of my problem), my screen don't want to rotate in portrait mode and I can't have the virtual keyboard, even when the slider is closed. I have tried everything, from hard reboot to uninstall all my apps, wipe out my os and re install it.
Got the update last week and not enjoying it so far (have yet to do factory reset). My main problem (besides lag) is that my phone keeps going to Mute either when I grab it or whatnot, I'm not sure. I keep on Vibrate and keep it in my shirt pocket typically (at work). It seems that handling my phone I somehow change the speaker modes without knowing it. Is there any way to lock the mode so that it won't change when the phone is locked? I don't mind being able to change the volume of audio output when the screen is off but for it to be able to switch to Mute or On is not something I want.
I am on official 8.1 and just noticed today that my browser will not rotate into landscape mode. Actually it will rotate the first time it's used after restarting the phone but any time I use it after that it is stuck in portrait mode. This seems to be new as of today but not sure.
After the software update, the Atrix 2 is still locked to landscape mode when in the car dock.
enable auto-rotation while docked, if the response to this is that this is the expected behavior. I hate using the phone in landscape mode in the car, as it severely limits the visibility of certain apps -- PLUS, other apps force their orientation to portrait while the phone is in this mode, resulting in the need for you to manually rotate the phone just for that one app.
I take a picture, everything is fine. I look in the gallery, everything is fine. But when I go to share the picture either via MMS, uploading to an app, or uploading to a webpage, the image appears on the page but has been rotated 90 degrees. It doesn't happen all the time, but enough to be annoying. Somewhere between the gallery and the upload, the picture gets rotated. But if I go into my gallery, the picture is fine. It's only on the site/app that it was uploaded to that it rotates on its own.
Just got the SE Xperia X10, I'm not sure what I click but it won't go to landscape anymore when I text. I really prefer texting in landscape mode. I just got the phone 3 days ago. I installed juice defender and task killer, I'm not sure if it has any thing to do with that.
After updating to ios4 it seems if you don't take pictures in landscape mode (holding camera horizontal instead of vertical) then when you view them on the computer they are sideways. They look fine on the IPhone when taken the old way. It's only when viewing on computer. Anyone else having this "problem".22 days to break a habit. 22 days to break a habit. 22 days to break a habit.
My new iphone 4s wont go into landscape mode. Apple's website suggests how to test it using the calculator, but doesn't say what to do if it doesn't pass the test.Is there any setting that may be keeping the iphone display in the vertical mode?
My phone will randomly lock in portrait mode. It is not the lock button on the multitask bar, I know iPhones inside and out but I am officially stumped. The orientation is unlocked, but the phone acts as if it is locked. I have tried a power down, power up, and a hard restart.
yesterday i repaired my Phone through Sony PC Companion due to some issues. After repair the phone, Landscape mode in Desktop is not working why? Before that it working but now not working? When i m in desktop, it still in portrait mode. When we use any application or menu , its working. Only in desktop its not working?
