Default auto rotate not working

Please Login to Remove!

I'm having trouble with my auto rotate. It will work after a battery pull, but once I slide the keyboard open it will stop working. I was on 526 but downgraded back to 448. 448 seems to be worse as it won't rotate at all even after a battery pull.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

The screen doesn't rotate when the keyboard is out, only when its closed.

What I mean is, after a battery pull, the screen will rotate like it should, but once I slide out the keyboard and slide it back close it will not rotate.

Might be a hardware issue, where the sensor that detects the slider closed is not working correctly. Just a guess.
