Title:

Automatic screen rotation not working

Text:

I've had a Nexus 7 Gen 2 for a couple years now, and recently, the screen has stopped rotating in response to device orientation.  Restarting the device used to fix the issue temporarily, but now even that doesn't always work.  This also affects tilt functions in various games.

Check My Android reads 0 on the tilt sensors when the device gets stuck.  I use [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pranavpandey.rotation&hl=en|Rotation]  to manually shift the screen, but this problem occurs with or without the app installed.

Any suggestions as to what might be wrong and how to fix it?
