Default Autorotate not working on samsung s3

So I have a "remanufatured" samsung s3 from asurion because my other one got a pressure crack in the LCD....I have great luck. So I just got it yesterday and Im assuming that the auto-rotate hasnt worked since I got it. Its not only not working but its messing up my phone. When I launch the camera application(which automatically goes into landscape for shooting) and I close it and go back to my home screen, my homescreen is all rotated around into landscape also. And the only way I can get it out of it and back to normal is my locking the phone and unlocking it again. And yes I have it set on autorotate, I have done all the tricks of taking the battery out for 30 seconds and putting it back in. Its really screwed up. What should I do? FML....
