Nexus 9 Inverted Screen Axis (Running on Marshmallow) Auto rotate problems

Hi all

I recently purchased a Nexus 9, have REALLY been enjoying it but its developed a problem with screen orientation. Essentially when the tablet is held in Portrait, the screen orientates itself in Landscape and vice versa. I know that auto rotate problems seem to happen sometimes but is generally that they dont rotate at all, rather than rotating in the wrong direction. This happens in all apps and on the home screen, I have locked it in landscape and everything seems to work fine bar the fact the screen isnt rotating properly.

I am going to try an app to give me some idea of how the accelorometer is working and delete a few apps. I know that a factory reset may be an idea too but I am afraid it will go away and come back. I will also download a spirit level app to check if that displays inverted aswell. Anyways, does anybody else have any suggestions, or have any of you come across this on Marshmallow on other Android devices?

I am really just trying to figure out if its hardware or software

Thanks everyone for your help

I have had similar issues. My solution that has always worked is to "reset" the position. Lock the screen in portrait, even if that means you first have to turn it to landscape. Now, turn the tablet "the right way" and enable autorotate. It should start behaving correctly now 😊

Just happened to me a couple times the last few days. I had to reboot. Will try the autorotate function first if it happens again.
