hello, the screen of my smartphone does not change orientation when it is rotated, not matter which application is used.

Hardware: ZTE Open C with Firefox OS 1.3.

Could it be a problem with the Hardware, or is something wrong within the settings?

thank you very much thomas

Hello,

After reading the information provided about your issue I suggest a soft reset of the phone.

  1. Take the back cover of the phone off.
  2. Take the battery out.
  3. Take the SIM card and microSD card out (if applicable).
  4. Wait 10 seconds.
  5. Put the SIM card and microSD card back in (if applicable).
  6. Put the battery back in.
  7. Put the back cover back on.
  8. Turn the device on.
  9. Check if the issue you were having is still present.

Please report back to us if this solved your problem!

Since 1.2 there should be a device orientation lock in settings. Please check this is not activated.

Hi gascoigne, The new ZTE OPEN C is on 1.3. Please set the orientation to the desired setting and restart the device. Not all applications have a view on both orientations. For example I have Text editor app and it changes orientation. However Flappy bird does not.

What application are you seeing this in?
