Sorry if is not posted on right forum.

I started having problems with rotation of my screen with my galaxy s3. I never had any problems with rotation of screen but started last night with no reason. I haven't changed anything on the phone and I didn't install any new application but screen wouldn't go to landscape position. The I checked everything restarted several times, battery pulled several times no luck. I had all galaxy line phones but never had same issues. I am really upset about it. Please help if you experienced same issues.

Thank you so much

If that's your phone you are in the wrong forum this is I9300 forum .

Answer given may not apply to a non I9300 but its worth checking the Play store .

Just wanted to say that this worked for me as well!
I am not sure if this worked but I got it fixed only in odin mode.
I found below instructions on the forum.
In order to get into odin mode, hold the volume down, home, and power buttons when powering on your phone. Then just hit volume up when it prompts you to.
I hope this fixed.

Thanks again
