    Screen keeps rotating without moving the tablet

    Hi all -
    I've started to have a significantly annoying problem. My tablet keeps rotating when using you tube or any other application. I have turned off 'auto rotate' but it keeps happening. Suffice to say this makes the tablet near to unusable.

    Additionally, I cannot buy ebooks online because the Irish store I bought it from (Komplett) sent me a tablet that had German stickers on it - so I presume it is a German model and therefore I cannot buy anything with this tablet. All in all, I have had this tablet 2 months and a) it doesn't work correctly, and B) it is no good to utilise to buy apps and ebooks etc. I feel I've invested heavily in a product that does not live up to its 'promotional blurb'.

    Any help in resolving this issue of rotation would be much appreciated and any advice on how I can make purchases with it (as that's a major point of a tablet right??!) would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    DRK

    The problem still exists... Does anybody have a suggestion as to what might be causing it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hiya Drako, this link from similar threads may be a good place to start. The problem was the opposite-screen would not rotate, but the first steps to take to try a fix would be the same imo. Sounds very odd and could require a send back, but I'd give them a shot first. The play store and location has been reported before--I don't recall a solution, I will have a snoop around the Search and follow up with any info. Sorry, it seems you've been waiting for an assist for awhile...a belated Welcome, Cheers.

    I suggest you try the Cold Boot procedure - it will reload your Operating System. Procedure is linked below in the Master Help Guide. Let us know if that resets the rotating problem.

    As for buying apps -- Google account is tied to your credit card address. What does your Build Number read? Go to settings>About Tablet ​and report back what it says.

    I see eejit has also stepped up to the plate.

    ...eejit at the plate usually gets beaned by the ball.

    Also Drako, in searching, many people suggest going to Google Accounts to sign in-click your primary email addy/the one you are using at Google Play and make sure the country is set for (Ireland) in your case. Not sure if that will fix it, but you may want to check it in case. Seems this is a common problem but I haven't seen anyone post a 'Eureka-this is how to fix it!' Thread yet.

    It would also help if you could identify which device you are asking about as your profile states that your tablet is "other Android 4.x" and while you have posted in the tf101 section, that may not be what you own.

    In any case, any TF device sold in Europe would have the same WW firmware & that in & of itself would not cause you to be getting the symptoms you describe, so more information such as model & build number would help please.

    PLEASE Search for existing threads before posting a new one. Thanks.

    Your opinion matters. But should you disagree - please try not to be disagreeable
