My ipad screen will not rotate.  I have followed the advice from other posts. It is not locked via the side switch. There is no rotation lock icon showing. Have tried turning off and on. Have tried tried hard reboot. Have updated operating system. Have tried hard reboot again after update.  Any other suggestions?  Is there anything inside the iPad that could be causing this? It has struggled to rotate recently, but I have previously been able to get it turning again.


I can rotate it manually with the accessibility settings, but this is a bit of a pain as it does not seem to lock in landscape position, which is my preference.


Thanks for any advice.

iPad, iOS 6.1.3, iPad 3
