nothing happens when I rotate my phone sideways in safari, calculator, or the keyboard. I have checked and nothing is locked in landscape mode. Also apps that require shaking do not seem to work. Sounds like a dead accelerometer - taking it back to the apple store tomorrow but will I get a replacement? Will I have to wait 3 weeks or whatever? I just got this phone 2 days ago.
Does anyone else have a problem where their photos app will not utilize the accelerometer; I thought this was a function of iOS 4?I can't rotate the galleries and even when playing a video that I recorded on the phone, It won't rotate to landscape.
So my accelerometer on my brand new LG G3 stopped working a few weeks ago, I thought I could live with it but its a real nuisance now. I've gone through numerous posts on various Android forums but to no prevail; I've tried recalibrating the motion sensor but each time I try to my settings app crashes...? I've also tried various apps including spirit level apps which have a sensor reset option but it can't detect an accelerometer at all! Oh and I have turned auto-rotate on and off hundreds of times, as well as turning my phone on and off. I really don't want to do a factory reset....
On thursday I bought a brand new Elm. Everything seemed to work ok until i have tested the implemented facebook application it automatically checked all the profile in a rush from start to the end (normally it goes profile by profile automatically, but if you tilt the phone left or right it goes one profile left or right). I went to the service menu and i saw the coordinates are not zero when the phone is standing on the edge... i tried to tilt the phone in such way to find the "zero" and I did, but in that case the phone must be tilted a bit backwards and on the diagonal edge of the phone. I also used the SE "Water Level" app and it showed the same result, mine accelerometer is NOT working properly. I searched some pages if there is any way to calibrate it, but found nothing. Does anybody knows if it's possible to calibrate it ? Otherwise I will have to take the phone back to the store.
So yesterday my accelerometer completely stopped working. I even factory reset the phone to try and fix it. The thing that fixed it was dropping my phone on the carpet from a small height. Keep in mind that I went through a whole 8 hour work day constantly moving around, setting my phone on the desk, and setting it up in my car mount.
None of that was enough to cause enough shock to make it work. Also, my volume rocker bent in the middle from it resting against the arm of my office chair.
I made a video of the issues: URL....Skip to 1:05 for the volume rocker and 2:15 for the auto rotate issue.
I was wondering when I am watching Videos on N900 with the accelerometer that it has why does it not rotate the Video from Landscape to Portrait Mode.I hope it does ! is it not doing it right now, because of the lack of portrait mode in it ?
I have a 5800 which I have been using without issue for 6 months or so. Several days ago, I decided to install the Skype app, for whatever reason. However, once I did this, several problems suddenly sprang up.
First, when I receive a text message to my phone, nothing happens to notify me of this. Most of the time the little envelope in the corner shows up, but not always. No sound or vibration, however, no matter what profile I have it set on. The phone still rings when I receive a call, and for alarms, but not for text messages.
Second, my accelerometer seems to have stopped working. I DID get it to work once, and the phone flipped to landscape view, but then wouldn't flip back.
I've since uninstalled skype, deleted the install file, turned the phone on and off, took the battery out and put it back in, played with all the settings, etc., and no dice.
I dropped my iPhone (from about 4 ft on to carpet, no big deal) but now the orientation is stuck and it won't rotate into any other views. It acts as if it is constantly being held upside down so that the home button is at the top. It won't switch into landscape or into normal portrait. I have to constantly flip my phone upside down anytime I'm using an app that rotates like FaceTime. It's like the accelerometer can't register the correct direction I'm holding the phone. Same problem when I play games that use phone tilt, the phone is constantly titled to one side an stuck there. I need to reset the accelerometer or recalibrate it at least. I tried resetting all settings, closing all apps, turning the phone off, turning on and off the rotation lock, nothing fixes it?!?!?!
i saw a video on Internet which pointed this out and i was wondering is this true? i thought it is probably just software, the accelerometer probably is capable of orienting it self in more than two configurations, such as the iphone which can fully detect 3 axis (x, y, & z).... please advise me, this would be a set back on this phone if this is so....
i have a nokia 5230 and the accelerometer it`s not well calibrated, in games when in my hands it`s perfect orizontal, he is turning right, i have installed a program named levels, and there it`s show me ( when i`m keep it perfect orizontaly) that he is inclined to the right, how can i calibrate it, or what`s the problem?
The accelerometer on my phone is misaligned. I started to notice this when I played Need For Speed Shift. When I hold my phone upright, the car would slowly veer to the right. I need to calibrate / re-calibrate my acclerometer so that I can fix this annoying issue. On Samsung, there's a calibration option on the Settings. I can't find it on my phone.
When I start my phone the accelerometer does not work, if i push the app button the menu stays over there, if i start the phone and push the button in landscape mode the menu stays there and if i push in portrait mode it stays there forever, but the car game works fine, I had this problem with Nokia 5800 that I sold and now I have the same problem with 5800 Navigation Edition. Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition Firmware: 31.2.101 RM-428 TomTom Go 720 Ohio, USA.
I'm really surprised to not see more posts with questions or information about turning off the tilt function of the 9800. The most annoying thing is that I like showing 3 rows of icons on the home screen, but if you tilt it, it changes to 2 rows, tilt it back to portrait and it stays at 2. This happens every time. Not to mention, on a reboot, it reverts back to 1 row! Unlike the Storm, you cannot set a default number of rows. Regardless, I would ONLY use the landscape option while watching videos....so the tilt is very annoying. Anybody know of any way to turn off the tilt function? Maybe in the programming?
When I had my Storm, there were plenty of applications out there to stop the tilt, but ALL BUT ONE did not retain the settings after a reboot. This was very annoying. Even the one that did retain after a reboot, sometimes failed to work properly.
Everyone is ranting about the auto rotate but I have never got it working on my phone. I read somewhere that it only works with the image gallery but on my E72-1 this is not so. It would be nice is someone pointed me in the right direction.
Does anyone know of an app or way to use the accelerometer to flip the screen upside down? I have a speaker dock that has you flipping the phone on its top to dock. If it were any other phone it'd be ok because the ports are normally on the side duty ours Arnt. Its a Phillips speaker dock.
Is there a way to increase the sampling rate of Accelerometer values? I use the HIGHEST tag in the android and it gives me a sampling rate of 50Hz.Are there any new drivers or anything else that may allow me to go further, say till 100Hz?
I have a storm2 that was replaced a few times and the current one is the those newer issued ones with the improved touch screen. I've had it for about 2 months and my accelerometer doesn't work anymore it seems like it blew out. My phone won't rotate and if it does it stays locked and I have to open an app that only works in portrait mode. Does anyone else have this issue? What do I do?
i have i phone 5 about 2 years now , just yesterday i found the rear cam not working , black screen and show the last pic in camera roll in the left side , while the front cam (secondary cam ) working.
The internet/LTE on my iphone has stopped working for everything besides phone, iMessage, Facetime (email, safari, and facebook all say they need internet access).Â I've reset my network, did a soft reset (home and power button). I have internet connectivity since I can do video facetime. What are my next steps to get safari working
Im using nokia 5530 and usually it goes slow and some of its apps stop working like music player hangs but remain playing. it slows down while sending or receiving messages even when messages are in outbox. Its RAM remains 80mb full even when no application running only 40-45mb is available. Sometimes its headphones' player buttons stop working and start working after restart.
For the past couple of days, I've been unable to use my BB's Browser or GPS functions. Whenever I try to connect to the BB Browser, I get a timeout error. None of my bookmarks are able to connect either. I've tried switching between the different settings in browser configuration settings (BIS, hotspot, wifi, IE, Firefox, etc) to no avail. I also have a wifi set up at home and even though it was working flawlessly a couple of days ago, it will no longer connect to any wifi. In addition, the GPS function is not working on any of the apps that use GPS (Both BB and Google maps, weatherbug, poynt).
Here's the kicker: Everything else is working great. I'm getting all of my emails from all of the emails I have configured with the device (my work email through the BES, forwarded from a comcast address, and from my *@vzw.blackberry.net address) and all of my apps seem to be working fine. I've got facebook, ubertwitter, ebay, weatherbug, poynt, and a couple of others and they're all able to update wirelessly.
I've tried going through a new enterprise activation, I've updated everything through the desktop manager, and I've re-registered the device on the network. I'm iffy on whether I've actually pushed all of the service books to the device again because I can't login here: https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw. Whenever I try to, it tells me I have use my device's BIS. Well, that's my problem. I can't use my device's BIS. Also, I have one WiFi host routing table and about a hundred Verizon host routing tables. I'm not sure which ones I should delete, as I've read, in order to get it download a new one.
The only thing I've really noted that appears to be a problem is that when I go to Options -> Status, the device's IP Address is 0.0.0.0. I'm not sure if that is supposed to be like that or not. I know from regular internet usage on a desktop, if you don't have an ip address on the network, you can't get on the internet. Does that ring true for the BB as well?
