    The screen/digitizer cracked on my droid 4 so I had a buddy replace it. Everything went fine, but now it's stuck in landscape mode as if the keyboard is stuck open.

    Is there a switch or contact that tells the phone the keyboard is closed and if so, could it be broken or misaligned?

    TIA!

    If a battery pull didn't fix it or a FDR doesn't fix it, something in the repair might not have been done correctly. I dunno if there is a "switch", but there is something that tells it the keyboard is open. I would assume that is the issue.

    Yea, it's been reset and I've pulled the battery, same result. There's a little gold contact that makes contact when the keyboard is closed, and it looks to be in fine shape and is making good contact. I'm stumped :blink:

    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem.
    Unfortunately the link doesn't work anymore.
    Is there anyone who got stuck on landscape after reassambling the phone and managed to fix it?
    appreciate any help


    EDIT:
    Found the culprit & hope it will help some other people:
