The accelerometer of my Samsung phone is not rotating when I rotate the phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8500 Wave that has the Hummingbird chipset and an upgraded Bada OS 2.0. Ever since upgrading to the new OS, the accelerometer has stopped functioning like it's in lock mode or something. Is this a hardware problem?
The Samsung S8500 Wave is a 3G Smartphone operating on 2G and 3G network bands using GSM and HSPA technologies. It was announced to the public on February 2010 and released on April 2010 measuring 118 x 56 x 10.9 millimeters and weighing 118 grams. This phone has been discontinued.

Now, if you have a problem with your phone’s accelerometer, try factory resetting your phone. Press Volume Up and Power button simultaneously to reset.
Another way is to enter without quotes “*2767*3855#”. You can also go to “Menu,” “Settings,” and then “Reset.” See if this works. Note: before doing factory reset, remove your SIM card and microSD card.
