my display stopped rotating like others mentioning above. but you other folks seem to just ACCEPT this as part of the "Kindle package"! i don't want to accept this BS. i have had the machine just a month! will they exchange it for another? what does one do? how do you actually get a dialog with an Amazon person?

I'll have to go look into the gear thingy. I only have half a screen! a few days ago isometimes the picture would flicker off so I shut it off for a few hours, Then it worked fine util today with the half screen. If you don't hear back from me the gear thingy took care of it. BTW it took a couple weeks to get the hang of it. Now that I have, I love my kindle!!! I Facebook and watch videos primarily but mahjong or suduko also. love it! - Delilah151

The web page will not rotate. Other stuff does. Tried the unlock buttom, but that didn't help. Any suggestions.

I downloaded the hulu plus app and the app does not rotate. Has anyone else had this problem?
