Oldturkey has pretty much THE solution, reset or restore. There is no fixing (or even replacing) a gyroscope/accelerometer unless you have a microscope, very tiny robot arms capable of soldering, and a lot of know how. If you are still under warranty I would definitely take advantage of that. If the reset/restore doesn't work and you have no warranty, you may unfortunately be fishing for a new logic board.

Now seriously this just worked for me. My screen stopped rotating after I dropped it. So powered off and on still the same. Phone was in a padded case so I firmly flicked (hit ) it against a hard floor on all four sides, turned it over and repeated .. Now works fine.

Yes, I repeated Gary's suggestion and gave the phone a firm tap and screen rotation restored. Unbelievable but true.
