You will have to do a factory reset, which will restore the default settings on your device.

1) With the device powered off, press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time.
2) When you see the Samsung logo, release the Power button, but continue to hold Volume Up until the recovery screen appears.
3) Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. Press Home to choose the selection.
4) Press Volume Up to continue.

Go to menu -> settings -> display and look to see if the "auto-rotate screen" option is checked.
If that doesn't work, try restarting. See if it works in browser.
Good luck!

How to get my tablet to start rotating again. It is set to auto rotate but it won't stop working.


This varies by operating system which is why it is a good idea to post the brand, model, and operating system with a query.

For a Samsung Galaxy 10.1:

Type apps is the upper right corner. Then tap Settings from the all tab. Then in the left menu, tap screen. Then, tap auto rotate
For the Inspiron Dell 2-in-1 with Windows 10:

Go to Control Panel> Display>Change Display Settings and then make sure that the "Allow the screen to auto-rotate" is selected. Or try the following: Place the tablet into Pad/Tablet mode.
Click the Start Start menu and select Settings. Click System.
Click Display. Scroll down and toggle Lock rotation of this display to ON.

Or this might help:

Click the Start Start menu and select Settings. Scroll down and toggle Lock rotation of this display to OFF.

How can I get the screen to rotate over to the correct position?


You might have your Orientation Lock on. If you are using iOS 7 or 8, swipe up from the bottom and disable Orientation Lock (http://cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/stop-screen-rotation-orientation-lock-ios-7.jpg)

Alternately, the switch on the side of your iPad might be set to Lock Rotation, so go to Settings > General and see if Use Side Switch To: is set to Lock Rotation. This would mean that whenever the switch above the volume controls is down, the orientation is locked.
