    auto screen rotation not working after recent update!

    After the update last week, my acer iconia 500 is not auto rotating the screen. the screen lock button is in the off position. can anyone help? i generally am always flipping from portrait to landscape and back again. this is so frustrating. If an app only runs in one direction it will flip at that time.

    Turn your Tab OFF (not sleep) then toggle the Rotation Lock several times then reboot.

    Have you tried the pin hole reset?

    Several have reported this has taken care of this problem.

    I have pin hole reset too. No success. When I do toggle the rotation lock button while tab is powered on, it does register the action with a pop up of a lock. However, screen does not auto rotate. Very frustrating

    I am sorry! I have no other suggestions, possibly someone else will pop in and be of more help.

    This is the best information I found for the problem. If any of this doesn't help you, maybe your best bet is to wait for Acer to come out with a fix. Who knows how long that will take. So many people are having this problem in all forums and I wonder why some solutions help some people but others, like you, nothing seems to work. Doesn't make much sense to me. Anyway, maybe you saw this in your searches, but if not, it might help. Good luck.

    There is a bug in the Acer a500 ICS build that affect initialization of the MPU-3050 sensor device. I have written about that here: ice cream sandwich bug on a500. Look for the post starting with "Breakthrough!"

    If you see this again, please check your logs for the MLUpdateData error (code 26) messages. You can install aLogcat to easily do that if you are not familiar with the logs. Please post your observations here. Thanks.

    You forgot another category - those who don't have problems.

    All I can say is that I turned the SCREEN LOCK off before I did the update.
