I am having Motorola Milestone xt720 (android 2.1) in which orientation doesn't work automatically but if i enabled it and if the screen is in landscape mode then it continuously remain in have to disable it manually to get back into normal mode.

Checking using AndroSensor it reports :

Accelerometer: Failed to start :Unknown error

Orientation : Failed to start :Unknow error

So is it a hardware problem or some application problem ?

Seems like a hardware problem. Did you check your accelerometer using the service menu? – Sid Jan 8 '13 at 14:07
