Instructions on how to quickly fix when Facebook cannot rotate the screen
There are many reasons why Facebook does not rotate the screen. There is a high possibility that because you did not do it correctly, the automatic screen rotation feature on the phone is locked. Or it could also be because your phone has a software conflict, for example. Here are some solutions when Facebook cannot rotate the screen.
1/ Share how to rotate Facebook screen
To rotate the Facebook screen, you just need to rotate the phone horizontally. However, when rotating, be careful not to put your hand on the phone's screen . Because when holding the phone, many people don't pay attention so their fingers accidentally touch the screen. At this time, the screen rotation feature will not work.
2/ Turn on the automatic screen rotation mode on your phone
Don't rush to find a way to fix the screen rotation sensor error, because it's possible that not being able to rotate the screen when surfing Facebook is because you haven't unlocked the screen rotation feature. By default and also a habit of many smartphone users, you often turn off this feature to avoid the interface of any application from automatically rotating unintentionally.
So, the fact that Facebook cannot rotate horizontally is likely because this feature is locked. To activate, you need to do:
- For Android : Swipe down from the top to expand the shortcut bar (swipe twice to see all quick access icons) > Click the Vertical icon to switch to 'Auto-rotate '.
- For iPhone : Users open Control Center > Click on the screen lock icon to unlock > Once done, you can immediately rotate the Facebook screen horizontally.
3/ Restart your phone
The error of not being able to rotate the screen horizontally is likely a temporary error of the phone. Therefore, a simple but effective way to fix the error is to open multitasking > swipe to completely close the Facebook application.
Then you power off and restart your device. This method will help the smartphone operate stably again after a long period of not really 'resting'. From there, fix minor problems with unknown reasons on the phone, for example the error of not being able to rotate the screen.
4/ Update your phone to fix it
We cannot rule out the possibility that the phone's software version is outdated or has problems, leading to confusing situations during the experience. Facebook not being able to rotate is also likely due to this reason. Therefore, iPhone/Android users should check and update their device's software to the latest version if available.
5/ Update Facebook application
Don't rush to blame the device, because the inability to rotate the screen may stem from the Facebook application itself. Especially when users have not updated the Facebook application for too long and are experiencing an outdated version. Quickly go to CH Play or App Store to check and update the application to the latest version if an update is available.
6/ Search and remove incompatible software
Did you just download some software and now you can't rotate the screen horizontally? Even Facebook or other applications on the device? So the 'culprit' could be that the newly downloaded application is incompatible, causing a software conflict. You need to uninstall this newly installed application and check to see if you can rotate the screen when surfing Facebook.
Above are some solutions for the problem of Facebook not being able to rotate the screen. If the error still cannot be fixed, there is a high possibility that the device has hardware damage. Therefore, you should bring the device for inspection so that a technician can diagnose the error.
