    Good morning everyone. Last night, while trying to view a few websites, i noticed that my screen will not rotate when i turn my phone sideways. I did hit *#0*# and did test the sensors, the gyroscope failed. Crap. Is the gyroscope replaceable? Is it worth doing? Or do i live with it until the S7 comes out, which i was planning on getting anyway.

    Thanks.

    Restart your phone in Safe Mode and check your screen rotation.

    I gave that a try per your advice, gyroscope still fails the test. :(

    Looks like it is a Samsung repair time I am afraid. If you live in Europe, there is a 2 year warranty on Samsung phones.

    What's the warranty in Michigan? ;)

    I may swing by the Sprint Corporate store tonight and see what is involved. Good thing the S7 is coming. .. :)

    To save money and increase profits, the U.S. carriers only offer a 12 month warranty.

    Some people have found that a sudden jolt has started it working again. Phil

    I gave it a couple of good whacks, but nothing has changed yet. The Sprint Corporate store said they can easily fix it for about $75-$100. I may just go that route. But I'll probably wait until the S7 comes out first.
