hi mike do you have my question
Great! To reset your D00901 Kindle, there is no need to open the back. The reset procedure for your Kindle is as follows: <br /><br />
1) Unplug your Kindle (if it is plugged in).<br />
2) Slide and hold the power switch for at least 20 seconds.<br />
3) Release the power switch and wait.<br />
4) Your Kindle will go blank and the screen may flash on/off a few times.<br />
5) After a few moments, the reset should be complete and your Kindle should power on. <br /><br />
tried all that several times/ the "saver screen"takes up90 percent of the screen and the power switch hold has really no effect is it a kindle 1 2 or 3-
Ok, well that is the reset procedure for your Kindle. If your Kindle is not resetting, there is a hardware failure, which means it will need to be sent for repair.
I can get Amazons toll-free number for you if you'd like.
that would be good ...can you tell by the model number if its a 1 2 or 3....
Sure, one moment please...
also ...how can i open it to get to the battery...
Do you have anymore questions unrelated to the reset? That way I know what your expectations are before I continue answering questions?
nope ...thats it... just the phone number...type of kindle i have and how to open it to get to the battery...thank you
Great... you have the Kindle 3. The number is XXXXX: 1-866-321-8851. A disassembly video can be found here: 3rd Gen Kindle Disassembly .
But I should mention that disassembling the Kindle will void the warranty.
so that stuff about using a pin to reset or removing the battery is not apprpriate for the kindle 3 ...thata it...thanks mike...good service
Yes, that is only for the Kindle 1.
And not a problem. I'm glad to help.
Thank you! Happy Holidays!
