The rotation lock is above the volume controls.

If it still doesnt work with the lock turned off like what happened to mine. turning off/on doesnt fix either.

randomly what fixed it was simply plugging in the usb cable to it

Most likely he pushed the lock switch on the side by the volume controls. That switch locks the screen orientation.
