My Kindle is not working. The following buttons are not functioning

Resolved Question:

My Kindle is not working. The following buttons are not functioning "menu", "home" and the button that allows you to select (go back to) the story I was originally reading. It has power so that's not the issue. Any suggestions would be welcome!

AnswerManRob :

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.

AnswerManRob :

Most likely you have glitched software. Reboot the Kindle by sliding and holding the power switch for 20 seconds. The Kindle should come back online within 3 minutes or so. If this doesn't correct the problem, let me know. If it does correct it, please remember to accept my answer so JustAnswer credits me with assisting you today.

Customer:

Hi there, well it did reboot but the button still are not working. The only thing that seems to work is the page forward and back. I can't select on the book I had "open" to continue to read.

AnswerManRob :

Did you see the Kindle reboot?

Customer:

Yes, and it then listed my front page with past books selected with the one I'm reading at the top and highlighted... just won't open to continue. I've tried pushing menu to see if that works and allows me back in the Kindle store, etc, but no luck. Pushing the home button isn't working either.

AnswerManRob :

This sounds like your keypad is broken. When did you purchase the Kindle?

Customer:

My husband bought it for me for Christmas.

AnswerManRob :

Oh...your Kindle is covered by a warranty against material failures.

AnswerManRob :

Customer:

Great, standing by, thanks so much. I'm so bummed as I'm right in the middle of a great book!

AnswerManRob :
