Got a new Kindle Fire HD for Christmas.
Now the screen does not rotate when I turn it.
Does anyone know the problem or how to fix?

Swipe down from the top to pull up the menu. Press the Locked icon to unlock screen orientation.

Just to amplify a bit (Old Rocker answered the question), I believe some apps will lock the orientation, and then you need to use Old Rocker's fix.
