Re: Gyroscope autom screen rotation defective

Hi @Ich75, sorry to hear about this. Slightly frowning Face

I have translated your question to English as this is an International forum, please post any replies in English and it will be easier for me and other users to assist you.

It's hard to answer before do some troubleshooting and hopefully we can get it working again!

Just to make sure that one of your downloaded applications isn't the cause of this behaviour, could you try and restart your device in safe mode and see if the auto rotation works in this mode? You have a test in either Settings > Support > Xperia tests for the gyroscope, or in Settings > About phone > Diagnostics > Tests.

Let me know how it goes! Slightly smiling Face
