Customer Question
I've had Google Nexus 7...
I've had Google Nexus 7 for a few years now and maybe about a year ago, the tablet doesn't auto rotate when I turn it. I often have to restart the tablet to get it working again and then it'd stop again after some time. Is there a way I could fix this?

I do
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

First, go back to Home screen by tapping on the Home button.

2. Then select Settings.

- You can also drag down the notification bar from the top of the screen and hit the Settings button there.

3. On the drop down list, select the Accessibility section.

4. Now, place a tick on the Auto Rotate Screen checkbox.

the auto rotate screen switch is already on.

Turn it off then back on again

Hi Harry, I mentioned in my original question that this often what I end up having to do for it to start working again for a few days before it stops auto rotating again.

Do you have any suggestions?
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Have you tried a factory reset?

P.s. Great username

Thank you. I've not done a factory reset but would that help over turning it off and on again?
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Yes, that is a completely different method.
