My kindle won't change direction any longer. I can only read and play games when kindle is in horiontal position. Any way to correct this?

Try rebooting...if you don't know what that is try reading the instructions...if you've done this and it didn't solve the problem use the "Help" link to contact amazon tech support.

It may only be that you locked your screen by accident. Which Kindle or Fire model do you have?

D. Kane - Go to Settings and on the far left click on Locked to unlock the orientation.
