    I have the same problem after the ICS update -- no auto-rotate (I have the Iconia 500).

    However, for me, it's a relatively minor problem with an easy fix.

    Shut your tablet down. Then power it back up. While it's powering up, switch the rotate lock button on and off, while rotating the tablet in different directions - up, down, front, back -- you get the idea, for about 15 - 30 seconds. You can experiment with length of time for the rotating.

    That will hold the auto-rotate working until the next time you shut down for whatever reason, but then when you power up, just follow the same routine.

    Hope this helps!

    read page 2 of the thread, the OP describes what how the return process works

    essentially, you need to send the unit to ACER and they will update the rom to 1.054 and your problem will be fixed.... it will take 2 weeks though to send to acer and get the tablet back. I just sent mine in yesterday... wish I lived close to ACER tech center like the OP... his 40 min wait time is more bearable than my 10 business day wait time

    I was facing same problem, then my friend recommended me to replace it's screen and by following it's words I simply walked to near by store and it all went well. I will recommend you the same.

    For no reason at all, after months of headaches, auto rotate started working again on my a500.
    Last night I installed the "watch espn" app. That its the only thing different.
    Weird.
    I hope it's permanent!

    To me it was a "duuuuh" After looking and trying different things, I realized that all the time the "lock button was on" (the one by the volume buttons) which means you cannot rotate the screen... well at least its working now.
