LG G5 Not Rotating (Solution)

For those that own a LG G5, you may want to know how to fix the LG G5 not rotating correctly when you change the screen position.Some have suggested that this happens to their smartphone when the screen rotation is turned on, but the LG G5 not rotating correctly.
An example of this is when the LG G5 screen not rotating even on 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 LG G5 owners is that the default camera is showing everything upside down (ie, inverted) and all the LG G5 buttons are upside down. Below we’ll explain two ways that you can fix the LG G5 screen rotation problem, the first recommendation is to hard reset the LG G5.
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 G5 screen won’t rotate. You can do this by pressing the code “*#0*#” (without the quotation marks) on the LG G5 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 LG G5, 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 G5 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 G5 not rotating is to complete a hard reset. It’s important to note that doing a LG G5 hard reset, this process will remove and delete all data, apps, and settings. You should back up your LG G5 to prevent any data from being lost. The way to back up data on your LG G5 is by going to Settings > Backup & reset.
