Z4 Tablet screen rotation.

My tablet z4 screen occasionally keeps rotating around usually when using messenger. Any ideas on how to stop it, the only way I know it's too turn it off and back on.

I use this app, it forces all apps to stay in Landscape mode all the time.

Re: Z4 Tablet screen rotation.

I have the same problem. Only when using messenger. Both when using the camera and maps. The screen also gets unable to touch. I use to turn of the screen, take a print screen, tap the notification of the newly taken picture which opens the picture and stabelize the rotation. The I just press the menu sqaure to see all open programs, and close Messenger. Really enoying.

Re: Z4 Tablet screen rotation.

I've just finally managed to get my Z4 - I've been pining for one for ages and couln't afford it, but now I have been able to I'm as impressed as I thought i would be at the screen quality, but I have problems with screen rotation. Mine however is in apps like facebook and pinterest. I like to have my keyboard always attached, and facebook seems fine with it, until i click on someones photos, and then it rotates. Does anyone know how to stop this. Pinterest poses a different position, every image is giant, when I then rotate the screen myself manually it resizes into a viewable screen size. are these android issues or tablet issues and can I resolve them?
