Screen not rotating when device turned

Suddenly my screen won't change from portrait mode to landscape when I turn the device - only showing in portrait even when turned sideways

Is this a good question?

Try turning device off then powering on, may need just to reset itself


Isn't there a switch by the volume that locks it into place? Have you checked on that and make sure it is properly set.

On the side, like the iPhone, only the iPad's locks the rotation, reset that to unlocked and that should do it

I have noticed this problem too while using some apps like SKYPE on the IPAD2. When ever an app like SKYPE is crashed or closed. The screen tilting is not working. I think if you restart the device, this is not repeating. This may partly answer your question. But this is what i have identified so far.
