Re: Compass not working

Hello to you all...


I have an Xperia Active ST17i.


Compas does't work. If i launch it the phone restarts. The display is not rotating anymore in lanscape format. Not in Maps, Gallery, etc. If I try to launch Waze, the phone restarts.

In Service Menu I tried the Compass Test. The phone restarts by it self.


I restored the Android from settings menu. Nothing. I restored it from Service menu. Nothing. I restored it with PC Companion. Nothing.


Please help guys..... Thx a lot.
