Xperia P - Accelerometer (Auto Rotate) Problem

Hey guys

My Xperia P is abt a week old and there's this weird problem that am unable to resolve.. please help me out..

Well.. Auto Rotate function is not working even after enabling it in the Settings Menu..

I am unable to play tilt/motion sensor games aswell.. so thought somethings wrong with the Accelerometer & performed the accelerometer service test .. and much to my surprise, I couldnt find any numbers/readings in the result even after placing my mobile on a flat surface.. It shows


no values

how can i fix it??

In worst case the accelerometer is broken but I suggest that you first try to reinstall the phone software just to ensure that it's not a software glitch.

If it doesn't help you should contact your local support team to have your phone fixed.

Re: Xperia P - Accelerometer (Auto Rotate) Problem

I have accelerometer problem too. I used SUS and PC Companion repair functions. Still the same. I donot want to go the service and wait for an upgrade.

In fact I use 6.1.1.B.1.54. My phone seems updated even I know that there is an upgrade to 75. Trying to upgrade to 6.1.1.B.1.75 will fix this problem?
