    Why? Out of nowhere it stopped working, it's annoying I can't watch YouTube big screen. Yes the auto rotate box is on. I guess I'll try a reset but anyone else had this?

    By reset you don't mean factory reset do you? Just do a "hard" reset, with the phone on hold down the power button and the volume down button until the phone reboots. Should take about 8 seconds or so.

    Rebooting usually fixes it. If that doesn't work: Uncheck the box for auto rotate, reboot, re-check the box and reboot. It may just be confused. (Try yelling loudly at it too?)

    Yup my maxx has done this 3 times since I've owned it. I just restart the phone. Hoping a future update will fix this and hoping it's not a hardware thing.

    Has happened to me also. It seems to follow after a screen time out while being in landscape.
    Have pin pointed any particular app, yet!
    Reboot always fixes it


    Another...

    My phone does this from time to time as well. Mainly, when I am playing temple run, and the motion controls stop working. Then I try to text using the horizontal keyboard and it will not turn horizontal. The only fix I know of is to just restart the phone. After that it works fine but it gets annoying!

    my razr also did it and when I was taking pictures they were all showing up upside down. Reboot fixes it.

    Yes rebooting helps but I find with mine if i just push the power button to put my phone in stand by wait a few seconds then again it usually works fine. But there are times you just need to reboot.

    I have had this happen only once. I just put mine in "sleep" mode and then woke it back up. That was my fix.
