Auto Rotate Not Working On LG V20

For those that own a LG V20, you may want to know how to fix auto rotate not working on V20. Some have suggested that this happens to their smartphone when the screen rotation is turned on, but not working correctly.

An example of this is when the LG V20 auto rotate not working, includes the Internet page and is stuck in the vertical and won’t go horizontal when the camera is moved.

Other issues that have been reported by V20 owners is that the default camera is showing everything upside down (ie, inverted) and all the V20 buttons are upside down. Below we’ll explain two ways that you can fix the V20 screen rotation problem, the first recommendation is to hard reset the LG V20.

 

 

An effective method to check if the phone’s gyroscope or accelerometer is functioning by doing a self-test. This will help to see what the real issue is when the LG V20 screen won’t rotate. You can do this by pressing the code “*#0*#” (without the quotation marks) on the LG V20 dial pad. Once you are in the service mode screen, tap on “sensors” and do a self test.

If your wireless carrier disabled the option to access the service screen, then your only recourse here is to reset the phone to its factory defaults. To learn how to factory reset the V20, read this guide. It’s also recommended to check this issue with your service provider first though as they may know by now that the problem exists and have some solution for you.

Another out-of-the-box tip from some that we don’t suggested doing is hitting the LG V20 with the back of your hand to give your phone a gentle jolt. If you want to take the risk, you may want to do that, just be careful

Again, the most recommended way to fix when the LG V20 screen wont rotate is to complete a hard reset. It’s important to note that doing a V20 hard reset, this process will remove and delete all data, apps, and settings. You should back up your V20 to prevent any data from being lost. The way to back up data on your V20 is by going to Settings > Backup & reset.
