I dropped my i-touch accidentally. The screen has stopped flipping. Can somebody help me by telling me how to flip the screen manually.


iPod touch, iOS 5.1.1

    iOS: Screen does not rotate


    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Reset all settings      

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                                

    iOS: How to back up                                                                                     

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.             

    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

    Thanks for the input. Have already tried these steps. I also think that the problem is hardware related (Think the gyro-MEMS, has malfunctioned). That is why I was looking at rotating the screen manually.

    There is no way to rotate manually.

    Actually lllaass, you can. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Triple-click home. Select AssistiveTouch and triple click the home button. When a circle appears, press it and press device. Press rotate screen and select how to rotate. When you're done, triple press the home button. Triple press when needed.
