Critically acclaimed by some tech websites as the best smartphone of 2017, LG V30 skyrocketed into the market in ways we would never have imagined. However, like all smartphones out there, LG V30 is no exception in facing different issues regarding its hardware. One of the issues LG V30 users complain about is that the accelerometer or gyro has malfunctioned, hence the phone’s screen isn’t rotating.
Another common problem LG V30 users complains about is that when their gyro or accelerometer has a malfunction, it affects the camera resulting in everything appearing inverted, together with all the LG V30’s screen buttons. Please note that if the methods we’ll be teaching you below don’t work, chances are that your phone is suffering from a software issue and the only way to fix that is to download and install latest software upgrades.
Fixing the LG V30 screen rotation issue can be done in two ways. The first one is to perform a hard reset on your phone.
The best way to inspect whether your LG V30’s accelerometer or gyroscope is working is by performing a self-test. Doing this will help you pinpoint the real reason as to why the LG V30’s screen isn’t rotating. To do this, type in the code “*#0*#” (without the quotation marks) on the phone’s dial pad. Then a Service Mode screen will appear. On that menu, press on “sensors” to perform 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. We also suggest you call your vendor first as they may already have the solution for this issue.
We’d also like to point out that a strong jolt on the back of your device can cause problems with the gyro and accelerometer, so try to avoid dropping it or otherwise causing any shocks or jolts to your LG V30.
If you want a sure fire method to solve this issue, then we advise you to perform a hard reset on your LG V30. Please note that when you perform this, it’ll delete and remove all the settings, data, and applications on your phone. To prevent losing those files, create a backup for your LG V30. In order to create a backup for your LG V30’s data, head on to the Settings application then tap on the Backup and reset option. To know more on how to do a hard reset on your phone, please go here.
