    All of the sudden this afternoon my captivate will not rotate to landscape mode on and apps.I have already checked the auto rotate option, but it didn't make a difference.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Sounds like somebody flashed an i9000 rom from the i9000 forum?

    You need to run a re-oriented kernel if you did. Couple of choices-

    [KERNEL]TalonDEV 0.4.3(0.5.1.2)[OC/UV][Voodoo Color & Sound v10][ZRAM][EXT4][BIGMEM] - xda-developers
    [kernel][ginger] I9000 reoriented vG.3.0 09.21.2011 - xda-developers

    EDIT- Actually, if you were running i9000, it would be stuck in landscape, not the other way around. Recalibrate your horizontal sensor, last option in MENU-DISPLAY

    I'm running Cognition 4.5.3 with kernel version 2.6.32.9. It has been working fine until yesterday.

    I have tried to re-calibrate the horizontal sensor a couple of time, but it did not fix the problem. I did notice earlier that the screen switched to horizontal view while I had the car charger plugged in. Once I disconnected the charger it went back to portrait view.
