Working with an un-calibrated device can be very frustrating. This is because, an un-calibrated screen doesn't respond to the motions properly, and when playing a game you will notice that your screen is not responding to movements of the device properly.

In camera mode the rotation is happening on its own?

Guess its a rotation/magneto/gyro or whatever its called sensor problem, phone screen rotates in camera mode to any side without even the phone being moved at all rather in camera mode if I keep the phone on flat surface then also the phone screen keeps on rotating.

When I calibrate my Galaxy player. The blue ball does not stay centered after calibration is complete. It always go to the top of the page. I have tried to recalibrate because the rotation does not work properly. Maybe my Gyroscope is broken. I have tried Hard Resets. What else can I try? Are there any apps to try?

I am trying to restore the auto rotate function on Samsung Galaxy S4 phone?

After reviewing a number of solutions that I found at several Android forums, I am now following a lead concerning the gyroscopic calibration. I was following the steps found on the VisiHow site.. I have tried: I have turned the auto rotate on and off several times. I have done a factory reset. I have removed the battery and the SIM card and re-inserted them. I have entered the "secret code" to access the phone's sensor and ran the test found them. All to no avail.. I think it was caused by: I am not sure. Auto rotate was working perfectly a couple of days ago. But now it is not functioning.

I get multiple letters when I try to type one. I was told to calibrate the phone?

I don't have the gyroscope calibration option in my S4 menu. I have tried: Followed the steps and under palm motion there is no option for gyroscope calibration.

Try one of the following solutions.

  • Place your phone on a flat surface. Dial the general test code: *#0*#. Then, select "Sensors". Test each sensor, including the gyroscope. Restart your phone.
  • Update your phone as shown in this article.
  • Go to "Apps" > "Settings" > "Language and input". Select each keyboard and disable all of the options within the "Smart typing" section.
  • In my experience, after getting the bug, I only had to factory-reset the phone to get rid of it and use autocorrection. Here is the article on how to do that: "How to reset Samsung Galaxy phones without losing data.
  • If none of these have helped you, then you might need to replace your phone. The touch screen might be out of order.
