If it's the sensor that's going nuts, I would try the following as the work-around.
1. disable the auto-rotate feature in the menu
2. use the manual rotate to rotate the picture so it's right side up.

Thanks for the advice. I have already done that a couple of times but the image displaying upside down is not realy a problem. It is the menu (especially the Quick Menu) that displays upside down when the screen is facing out and folded back (you have to rotate it to do that) as there is no way I can get that to display upright. My 60D was bought late 2010 already and I don't want to spend a lot of money on it at this stage. Apart from trying to fix it myself as already suggested I suppose I will just have to live with it like that untill it finaly gives in completely.

Exactly, the menu issue... Well I got it fixed by the canon tech support...it is not cheap. They changed the all LCD screen actually. It made the trick for sure. It does feel like it is a new camera...

I looked at the links, you got to be kidding, i would never suggest someone take the camera apart if they had no such experiance. I am a trained Techniction in a simmilar field and have attempted to repair digital cameras and never had any sucsess. Kidos to yo if you werw susessful.

Hello Guys! I had the same problem with my 60D for a while and I have just figured how to fix it.
There is this sensor that gets loose and doesn't do its job. I put a little piece of paper against it to make some pressure and take it back to the correct position and it worked just fine!
You can see how to reach the sensor in the links below, you only need to take 8 screws out, it's super easy.

Hey! I'm sorry but I didn't take pictures by the time I fixed the problem and I no longer have the camera.
I remember it took me a while to figure that the problem was caused by the loose sensor, it was a trial and error processes, I don't recall 100% but I think I put the paper between the sensor and the spot it is fixed so it would stay a little further.
Sorry for not being very helpful, but I hope you figure how to fix, you got to be patient.
