    Hi Folks

    My Desire needs to be shaken to go to or from landscape mode most of the time. Is there a way to fix this? It was fine up until today...

    Two things that I did that may have affected it recently...

    #1- Took it out of my pocket to use it and dropped it on the floor. The back popped off and the battery fell out. It worked fine immediately after, but maybe dropping it did this?

    #2- I installed a couple of apps from the market. Nothing to do with changing landscape mode or anything that I'm aware of. Did one of my apps maybe mess things up?

    I tried recalibrating it, to no avail. Any advice would be appreciated!

    PS- Discovered this forum yesterday (where I got the app ideas). Great community here!

    Try a factory reset. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid it's broken..

    Welcome to Android Forums, Canucklehead. (great user name ;))

    I've moved your thread to the support area of the HTC Desire forums for you.

    It sounds like you damaged your device and should take it in to have it examined by a tech.

    Thanks for the replies guys, but it seems to mysteriously started working again. Kinda scary, as maybe it'll stop again?

    Anyways, thanks for the input everyone!
