    I was using my iPad and something strange happened. All of a sudden the screen rotation stopped working. And to answer the obvious question...yes, the screen rotation function was enabled.

    I turned off the machine and turned it back on and now everything works fine. Has anyone else experienced this? What's causing it? And what can be done to correct it if it happens again? Thanks.

    I haven't had that happen. I have found that certain apps don't "rotate", that's just how they are. If it was with all of your stuff, then it may have been a "glitch". And turning the iPad off, frequently resolves many "glitches" as you found out. Hope this does't turn into a permanent problem for you. Good luck.

    I had a similar problem, but they eventually diagnosed my accelerometer to be defective. Hopefully not the same problem..

    Could they fix it, or did you have to replace your iPad?
