Re: Xperia Z auto-rotate not working

I have the same problem! Don't think I'll be the last to add this to this post! Mine is 2 weeks old! Why should we all have to try to fix our phones ourselves?? Its clearly a software issue that needs an update to fix! Oh and whilst your at it, I now can't use my new phone to listen to music in the car as the 3.5mm jack works only when it wants to! ( hardly ever) Its a new cable. Worked fine on my old Xperia. This phone is full of bugs!! Gutted stuck with it for 2 years now! What are you going to do about it.

Re: Xperia Z auto-rotate not working

I had the exact same issue... big fingers and all Slightly frowning Face
i went through all the diagnostic tests that the phone has and everything was working, i didn't want to resent it to factory settings and lose everything, so i opted out of trying it. 
after just about giving up... i changed the phone to the basic home screen, then switched the auto rotate off then back on. i then immediately restarted the phone, letting it set on the table without moving it while it turned off and then back on. i let it set there a few min while i prepared to be disappointed... but when i picked it back up, to my amazement it it worked! 
idk if this solution will work for everyone. maybe if someone else tries it they can post a reply as to whether it worked for them.

Re: Xperia Z auto-rotate not working

Heya, four weeks no rotation, have reset phone three times, in testing when gyro is pressed the phone restarts, have tried everything above, over and over and nothing. No accelerometer and cannot check gyro. In apps like navigation, Facebook etc the phone restarts when it feels like it. My big thumbs cannot take this much longer!

Xperia C4 auto-rotate not working

Good day!

 

I would like to ask for assistance for my Xperia C4.  On the first day, the auto rotation and other services are working well.  However, after 2 hours, the auto-rotation suddenly stops.  I've tried to check the settings & reboot the unit many times for several days.  I even tried to reset factory settings but no change at all.  Please help me what to do and I am really hoping that you could help me.  Thank you and God bless you!

Tap and hold homescreen! You'll find home setting right beside themes.
