Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

namstech :

It might be due to temporary software error. Try rebooting your kindle as follows:

namstech :

If your kindle has a leather (or any) cover, remove it.

namstech :

If plugged in for charging or connected to computer, unplug it.

namstech :

Press and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds and then release. This should initiate kindle reboot that will take 2-3 minutes to complete.

namstech :

Once computer reboots completely, check for normal operation.

namstech :

Let me know if you have any problem (s).

Hi.

Seems there was an error with chat.

The problem you are having might be due to temporary software error. Try rebooting your kindle as follows:

If your kindle has a leather (or any) cover, remove it.

If plugged in for charging or connected to computer, unplug it.

Press and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds and then release. This should initiate kindle reboot that will take 2-3 minutes to complete.
