The compass on my Android 4.4.2 phone is stuck.

When I installed some compass apps, I get the error message that there's no magnetometer, or no Orientation sensor detected.
Any Ideas!

Welcome to Android Central! What device do you have? Maybe it didn't come with the necessary sensor. Try installing a sensor testing app like Sensor Box, and see if the compass registers anything.

I wasted my time trying to rectify something that did not exist in the first place.

Thank you for the tip and saving my time.
