    There are two possibilities. On the iPad2 the 'orientation lock' is either controlled by ---

    (1) the switch next to the volume control or....

    (2) -- press the Home switch twice quickly and you'll open up the multi-task bar. Now 'flick' the screen to the right and you'll see - in the multi-task bar - the 'orientation control'

    It will be one or the other (it's configurable in the 'Settings' menu)

    So, which ever it is, either the switch or the 'soft' control in the multi-task bar, you'll be able to restore the orientation control of the iPad.

    Let us know if this doesn't work - or even if it does....:D

    So - you've tried both suggestions? OK - reboot....

    Press and hold the Power and Home buttons together for a long time - perhaps 20 seconds..

    The iPad will reboot - let us know if this fixes the problem...

    Some applications can enforce an orientation lock. So double-click the Home button to open the multi-task bar, then press and hold any icon in the multi-task bar until the icons start to jiggle. Now close all the apps, one-by-one, by touching the '-' sign on the top left hand corner of each app. Once all the apps are closed, close the multi-task bar by pressing the Home button and see if the problem is cured.

    When you use the slide switch by the volume rocker switch does it mute and unmute or lock and unlock the rotation?

    It will only do one or the other.

    Are you able to double-tap the home button and swipe right to see the lock rotation icon and iPod controls?
