    I have a LG Optimus L9. All of a sudden the screen does not rotate so I have to use the smaller keyboard. Any ideas on a fix?

    Welcome to the guest forums!

    There are several possibilities.
    1, the gyro sensor could not be detecting that you have rotated the screen far enough. Have you tried over-rotating it to force the screen to rotate?
    2, the gyro sensor could be in need of calibration. Some phones allow for this under Settings -Display.
    3, your auto rotate is off. Make sure to check the box in Settings - Display - Auto Rotate.
    4, you have installed a launcher that locks your screen orientation. In Nova Launcher, for example, it is under Nova Settings - Look and Feel - Screen Orientation.

    Hope one of those does the trick! If not, register for the forums so we can help!
