motion sensor recalibration question

I have a HP touch pad and the motion sensor has become faulty, e.g. When I play games that require motion sensor like asphalt racing I have an extremely hard time trying to control it. Is there any way I can recalibrate my touch pads motion sensor to fix this problem?

This appears to be an issue introduced in WebOS v3.0.4. Others are having the same problem.

Accelerometer Issues after 3.0.4 update

---TRY THIS 1st---

HP recently put out version 3.0.5. I saw nothing in the changelog regarding the accelerometer, but you can see if this fixes the issue.


---TRY THIS 2nd---

You can also try running the diagnostic test for the compass. It may not work, since the compass and accelerometer should be two separate modules, but it's the closest test to an accelerometer test.


Once in Device Information, tap on the "Device Info" tab on the upper left of the screen. Select DIAGNOSTICS.


You can use WebOS Doctor from HP. this link will tell you how to use it. Download the 3.0.2 version from WebOS Internals. That will downgrade your tablet back to 3.0.2 which should resolve the issue.

Good luck.
