    Need help!!!!!!

    I have no idea what's wrong with my kindle. I received my KF for Christmas and it has worked properly until now. Since yesterday when I rotate it horizontally it (the screen) stays vertical. Is this a serious problem or can it be fixed fairly simple.

    I nominate this question for the most asked issue that is followed by "Doh." No offense meant, by the way. I think all of us have run into the problem at first. It can be especially annoying since some apps (e.g. some games) override the lock setting so you don't discover the KF is locked until you hit an app that doesn't override it.

    The first night with the KF my wife discovered the opposite problem. She tried to read a book on the KF while lying on her side in bed and found to her consternation that when she did so the book shifted from portrait to landscape mode. I was already asleep but she greeted me the next morning with the comment that she was going to send it back and return to her trusty Kindle Keyboard. Locking the orientation solved her reading problem.
