Re: [Tablet] Acer A500 screen rotate issue An old post, but just in case...
I had the same problem and I tried to think what changed since it started. The only thing I could remember changing was installing the Netflix app that was recently available for it. I uninstalled it and screen roatation started working. I then reinstalled the Netflix app and it's been working fine since.

Interesting thought. I do have the Netflix app installed and have for a while. Unfortunately I don't really know when this "problem" appeared. I have had ICS on it more or less since I got it. It wa a display model still on 3.x and I use the OTA update function as the very first thing I did with it when I got it home. I'm fairly sure the screen was rotating without issue in the beginning but if the boot loader is "too fast" as the other sites imply, then it's one of those cases where you could boot it and it works or you could boot it and it doesn't work.
Just for S&G I'll remove and reinstall Netflix and see what happens.
