Broken G-sensor

Hello

I have problem with the g-sensor (accelenometer ). It doesnt show right value at all. When i held it straight, it shows its about 8 degree to the left. In games my characters, cars , go a bit to the right all the time. Is there a fix with this ? I try to repair from the pc companion, but didnt fix this.

Re: Broken G-sensor

There i can only see the values from all the sensors etc. no configuration or calibration options.

I can say that the

x value which should be 0.0 is around 0.4-0.5
