iPad orientation

Discussion in 'iPad' started by Timothy Mathews, Dec 19, 2011.

  1. Suddenly, my iPad won't go into landscape mode. I've checked to make
    sure I didn't inadvertantly flip the orientation lock and also checked
    in settings to make sure I hadn't done it there. Googling got me lots
    of information about how to lock under 4.2 or make changes under 4.3
    but I didn't find anything about possible things one might do which
    would lock the orientation.

    My question is, have any of you encountered this and if so, is there a
    fix? I can only wonder if, perhaps, an update to some app I have
    installed may be the culprit and, if that's the case, might a reset
    resolve the issue?

    Have you tried restarting the iPad?

    Geez...I tried everything I could think of and didn't even think that
    the iPad probably could be completely shut down and restarted just like
    my iPhone. God loves idiots; that's why he made so many of us.

    Seriously, thanks for the tip...it worked. ;-)

    I got this bug several mpnths ago on my iPad 2.
    Simply switch off and restart, it fix and i do not have the same problem
    since.

    Switch Off : not sleep.
    Press the OFF/ON button for seeral seconds : it switch off the iPad.
    A slide will ask you if you want to switch off : confirm.
    Wait a few seconds.
    Press again once the button.
    After a few secopnd you should seee the Apple logo : showing that the
    ipad is restarting.
