    You've probably turned on Rotation Lock. Depending on your settings this is either the switch next to your volume controls, or on the multitask bar. You can set this in Settings > General > Use Side Switch To:

    You can tell when rotation lock is on. There will be a lock with a an arrow around it (icon) to the left of your battery indicator in the status bar.

    If the the switch is set to Rotation Lock, then check the switch.

    If you set the switch to Mute, then you need to go to the multitask bar by double tapping on the Home button, then swiping left to right in the bar to see the controls. The Mute or Rotation Lock icon will be on the far left.

    Looks like it was a downloaded app. I removed it and the problem was solved.

    That is unusual. Glad you got it fixed.
