Samsung Galaxy Ace auto-rotation does not work

Today the auto-rotation of my Samsung Galaxy Ace stopped working. Clearing memory, rebooting the Ace, nothing helped. ‘Try calibrating’ somebody suggested during a google search. But ‘Parameters > Display > Horizontal calibration’ didn’t help, even worse it completely froze the Ace. ‘please wait a moment …’ yeah right, it just froze. Instead of holding the on/off button very long to reboot I decided to be more blunt. I just took out the battery pack. And then finally I had some luck because after re-inserting the battery and booting the Ace the auto-rotation functioned as normal. So the receipt for this problem is as follows:

Device: Samsung Galaxy Ace
Problem: Auto-rotation does not work
Solution: Take out and then re-insert the battery and boot the device

    Guys , taking out the battery doesn’t work ! I suppose it works only in some cases when the devises restores factory settings itself ! What you should do is calibrate in Horizontal Calibration menu ! Just lean the devise back a few degrees and press calibrate and it works ! If you dont succeed the first time , make some more attemps and i’m sure you will make it !!! ;) Cheersssss ! ;)

    -go to setting

    thanks man,…it’s working…

  15. Gizasmum says:

    The solution is to make sure auto rotation is ticked in Settings/ Display. Whilst in the same menu, scroll down to Horizontal calibration, click on it, lay your phone face up on a flat surface then click on Calibrate.

    Auto Rotation stopped working for me even though the Auto Rotation box was ticked. I just unticked and then ticked and it started working again. Worth a try
