Auto rotation stopped working



The autorotation suddenly stopped working on the phone.


I have tried to restart without tuching the phone, switching the autorotation setting "off" and "on".

Tried to swith off the "Google voice...", opening a browser and click the URL field, tilt the phone and wait ....


Seam like when I use the camera I can get another "tilt"/position 


Tested the giro in the support function *#*#7378423#*#* the cube was fine


Tested the diagnotsic of the gyro and it did not work ...

Settings / about / Diagnostic / test / Gyro...
