My kindle fire screen is locked and won't rotate.

I tried holding the power button for 20 seconds and turning back on. It didnt fix the problem. The background changes each time I turn it on and the date and time are correct.

jareb, the first thing you wan to do is to see if it is locked. Tap on the little Settings icon in the top right corner of the screen, here you should see where you can lock and unlock the screen position. Unlock it and see what happens. Hope this helps, good luck.

There is a rotate screen or lock screen option in settings. I promise it will work.
