My Samsung Tab3 8 inch screen does not work properly. It rotates

This answer was rated:

My Samsung Tab3 8 inch screen does not work properly. It rotates to 3 of the 4 positions. It does not rotate to the upright portrait position. I have tried turning the auto rotate switch on and off, I have done a restart. Nothing fixes the problem. There is no horizontal calibration option in settings.
I downloaded an app for manual rotation and it does respond to the app but only manually. It will not autorotate to this one position.
Thanks if you can help.
