As I type this, I can only type this in landscape mode. I cannot do it in portrait mode. Another weird thing is that when I am looking through my carasol, and click on angry birds for example, angry birds comes up upside down only. I have to completely rotate my kindle fire 360 degrees in order to be able to play it. Is this normal? Is there a setting that has been disabled or something

Tap on the gear in the upper right hand corner. Then to the far left, turn off the orientation lock.

Click on Settings > UNLOCK/ Lock

You have locked your screen and the unlock utton will be on the left of the menu that appears when you press Settings.

My KF was locked in landscape mode regardless of locked control. After shutting KF down, unlock control was restored.

Catherine-
Turn it over. Hulu only comes in one way.

ive unlocked the screen but angry birds still does not rotate. does anyone know if it is possibleto rotate angrybirds?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 7, 2012 5:19:01 PM PST
no....you cannot rotate angry birds. That game is designed for landscape (widescreen) only.

I understand that angry birds must stay I landscape mode but I wonder if the image can flip upside down so that it matches the orientation of the marware Eco view cover?

I took our cover off and flipped it so the on/off button is on the right in landscape and all seems well with Angry Birds now.

Thank you that did the trick - guess it was my fault for allowing the three year old to use it unsupervised! Oops!
