Inverted display and pictures in Moto Camera app - help!

All of a sudden today, my Moto Camera app has an inverted display and takes upside down pictures. The settings menu is on the right side of the screen (and upside down), the gallery is on the left, and pictures come out upside down. I've cleared the cache and data in the app, disabled the app and re-enabled it, cleared cache on the phone. Nothing is working. When I re-enabled the app and opened it up again, the welcome/setup menu text was upside down. It's really weird. Everything else is working fine on my phone. Moto customer support suggested toggling the auto rotate setting, which I did, and it did nothing. Then they suggested a reset, which I really don't wanna do. Anyone heard of this before? Thoughts on a fix? Thanks!

Guessing this is a stuck sensor. You might try giving it a couple sharp whacks against your hand at different angles to unstick (a couple of folks on the Moto forums confirmed this worked for them). Otherwise you may have to get it replaced.

Holy effing crap, that worked! I smacked the hell out of it on my hand about 30 times, all sides, all angles...nothing. Waited a while, figured I'd try again - this time I was droppedit onto my desk a few times. BAM! Unstuck sensor. Now that I think back, I think I dropped my phone yesterday, so that must've been what got it stuck to begin with. Anyways, many MANY thanks!!

This is a great post! I had the same upside down problem and also tried everything. Nothing worked until testing this and skeptically slapped the phone hard against the pillow. Miraculously everything is right side up:))))

Man, it worked for me too!!! Thanks a lot
UNS TAPAS NA TELA FUNCIONOU MESMO! A câmera estava invertida e não conseguia arrumar, cheguei até a trocar a ROM por uma da cyanogenmod e nada, mas depois dei uns tapas na tela mudando o angulo do celular e tudo voltou ao normal! Obrigado pela dica! Thanks a lot

I'm having Moto x4 was facing " inverted display of camera" problem. I followed 2 different methods by Moto customer care nothing happened. Then I updated my Moto x4 camera software in play store and the problem got fixed automatically.
