    Hi there. My iPad 2 screen sometimes doesn't want to auto rotate from vertical to horizontal. No, the little side switch is not in the lock position, also not in the settings menu. Have to hard reboot my iPad to correct this, then works for only a little while.

    Should I take it back to the shop. About 8weeks old.

    For sure, if this keeps happening. You've found the 'solution' of a reboot but, for sure, this shouldn't then happen again. I'm assuming it's not a jail broken iPad?

    Hi Tim. No jail broken anything will ever enter my house. Thanx for the advice. If it keeps on constantly I'll take it back. Not looking forward to a re-setup.

    I had the same problem today for the first time since I have the ipad2, and I have had it since it first came out.

    Reboot fixed it, but it is really weird that a number of users suddenly have the problem

    Might not be illegal. But it's like buying a brand new car and ripping the seats out to fit a lounge suite. I like things as they are intended. 

    On the topic. I haven't experienced the problem since my first post after the reboot.

    Slap it ,gently ,but slap it.that's the solution of the rotation lock problem . Probably something wrong with the magnets caused by the covers,when it happens close the cover by slapping it and it will be ok,I do it 3 times a day :)
