Re: Notification bar not swiping down.

Probably, I think that phenomenon is a problem of not touching the edge of the screen.

 

Currently, there is no way to solve the problem.

There are some countermeasures if it says that it is only necessary to operate the Nortification bar.

 

1) Use a home application that can set gesture input, such as Nova Lancher.

2) Use applications such as Navigation Gesutures (+ Navigatio Gestures Premium Add-On) and perform operations.

3) Use the 'adb wm' command to invalidate areas that can not be touched on the screen, narrow the effective range of the screen and use it.

 

I think that it is useful as a first aid.

Re: Notification bar not swiping down.

Hi, I tried the Xperia Software repair via the online download from Sony. It took 2 hours and still the issue of notification swipe from top not solved on the XA1 dual sim. Sony, can you pay heed to these issues via this forum thread please and advise?

Re: Notification bar not swiping down.

Can anybody with this issue confirm wether the issue is present when screen is locked?

In my case, I need 3 or 4 attempts to swipe down the notification bar while in home screen, but it seems to work perfectly in the lockscreen!

 Has anyone been able to fix this. I'm having same issue!! Swipe down works fine in lock screen but for last 3 days won't work in home screen. Sony need to step up and get this fixed.
