Nokia X6 - No Auto-rotate for internet browser

Hi folks,

Just got my X6 yesterday and I dont seem to have auto-rotate for my internet browser.

Not sure if it's supposed to do it too for texting (it only seems to change when I physically select qwerty keyboard - is that right?)

Any ideas please as I cant keep trying to view the web on the narrow screen?

 

Thanks

 

Ian

I don't know about the x6 but the 5800 only rotates when you turn it to the left. Have you tried both directions?

Naa,  doesnt seem to do it whichever way I turn.  I've gone left, right, up, down, backwards, forwards but still nothing.

 

Very strange as although my brain isn't what it was, i'm sure it worked when I turned the phone on for the first time and has since disappeared?

Have you enabled auto rotate in the sensor settings menu?

If it's already enabled disable all sensors, reboot the phone, enable all again.

The X6 has an occasional bug where auto rotate stops working. Not sure if they fixed that bug in the latest v20 firmware or not.

psychomania - spot on!

 

That's exactly what it is.  Can't see how I disabled it but the sensor was off, it's now on and i'm happy.

 

Thanks very much
