The screen will not rotate on my IPad 2

Let's check some settings first.

On your ipad, go to settings > General.

There is an option "use side switch for". Is that configured for lock rotation or mute?

If it is configured for lock rotation, just toggle the side switch (just above the volume buttons) and check whether your issue is resolved.

If not, let me know and we will go for the next troubleshooting step.

Thank You

I think that fixed it, is this a common problem? I have had this for several years and am concerned that it is on it's way out !!

Great to know that, Sandra..:)

It is not a problem, it is a feature. If you set the side switch for lock rotation, and if you turn off that switch, lock rotation will not happen.
