    I have had this problem for a while too. I tried everything posted here with no luck. I Uninstaller google maps updates and no luck. I then remembered I have a spare Sim card under the battery cover so I took that out and also removed the battery and held the power button for 20 seconds. Put it all back together and now it works! I don't know if I should have power cycled after the Google maps thing, or if taking out the extra Sim card did the trick or what. For what it's worth this is what I did and it works.

    Good night people
    I want to take advantage of the topic to report the same problem that the comrade had over there
    Handset: galaxy s5 g900m
    Rom: mashmalow
    Date 2017-01-25

    In the beginning I thought it was a hardware problem, but before sending for assistance, I can see that with some moves the accelerometer and the gyroscope come back to work for a few moments. First thing was to give hard reset, I realized that the accelerometer and the gyroscope worked, but the moment the screen goes into standby it stops working.
    The second attitude was to lock the phone in safety mode, the accelerometer and the gyroscope worked, but the first standby it stops working ..
    Third was to pass roms stock, customized CM MIUI, same situation occurred the accelerometer and the gyroscope worked, but the first standby it stops working.
    I gave a few beats on the back of the phone, the same thing happened after restarting.
    I deleted folder data / etc / sensor, the same thing happened but the first standby it stops working.
    ****But today I did something that made me sure that the problem is softwere, with the rooted stock rom I installed a custom kernel, phonix kernel, then the accelerometer and the gyroscope worked perfectly, it worked even after returning from the standby, for about 3hr The cell worked very well, but upon receiving a connection the accelerometer and the gyroscope stopped working and when using test sensors dialing * # 0 * # fixed values ​​where it says accelerometer and the gyroscope
    Now I stopped messing with my cell phone.
    I hope this information can help our team find a solution.
    I downgraded to 5.0, and it did not solve...
    This connection problem after the updates ...

    espero ajudar em alguma coisa

    I have a vzw note 5 and I firmly believe it is related to google maps/nav. I have factory reset and avoided using google maps for a couple weeks and no problems. Today, after my first use, all sensors gyro, compass, proximity, light, accel not reading anything, and i have no rotation or auto brightness. A reboot typically fixes it but it HAS to be a software issue.

    No need for Safe Mode, whacking your phone etc. Swipe the pull-down menu and press on Screen Rotation. Chances are it's switched off.

    Alas, my gyroscope issue isn't simply the screen rotation setting being switched off --it's apparently a spontaneous hardware failure. I tested via the phone code *#0*# diagnostic and got the attached failures. Otherwise the phone works fine. I went through the whole "safe mode" and factory resets exercise to no avail.

    For those wanting to get it fixed, the only way I've found is to set up a return through Samsung. They quoted $70.31 for the initial shipment and work, but indicated that may not be the final repair cost. So I didn't bother. They also partner with a company called "UBreakIFix," but their reps tell me all they do is recommend sending it directly to Samsung for motherboard issues.

    What the actual hell.

    I was having this issue on my Galaxy S5 as well. You can dial *#0*# into the dialer app to open a sensor and display diagnostics app. One of the buttons, Sensor, will show you the Accelerometer sensor readings. The coordinates under the Accelerometer sensor section were unresponsive. I went in and did like Ivan and disabled the Flipboard app, then went back to the *#0*# app in the dialer. For a bit, the coordinates became responsive again, steps were being counted by S Health, but checking a few minutes later, it's having issues again.

    On second look, the menu that shows after pressing the Sensor button has another button, Gyro Selftest, and pressing that shows Result Fail.

    Fyi I just got that problem. Gyro test failed and no rotation. No reason for it....
    Booted into safe mode, still no joy. Gave it a good crack up the back, still no joy.
    Disabled safe mode and it's working again. Gyro test passed and rotation back on.


    Figures. I don't recommend beating your phone up but safe mode booting might have reset it
    I had exactly this issue, and did precisely this - safe mode with no change, then disabled safe mode - then the exact same results, everything working....

    Thanks for posting!!
