    My tablet's auto rotate stopped functioning this weekend (and yes, I checked the switch). I have had the tablet since December 2011, and upgraded to ICS in May or June (I forget when exactly). I've heard there can be various reasons for this, so I am open to some suggestions before I try to send the thing in for repairs. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way to tell if it's a dead sensor or somehow related to software/apps?

    I'd like to know the answer to this too. Mine stopped even tho I haven't changed settings. Bloody annoying!

    Have you tried rebooting (i.e., powering completely off, then turning back on again)?

    You could also try installing an app that tests your various sensors to see if the orientation sensor is still working properly. Try this one: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=a5w8jq_U..
