How do I find out what the model is. Apart from Kindle on the cover and on the frame of the machine there is no indication of model. It was a present to me more than one year ago.

Hi,

Does your Kindle has a physical keyboard .... Or does it has a touchscreen only ?

Andy
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

touchscreen only, not qwerty but aphabetical which has to be moved via the left right and up down sides of the central button at the bottom of the kindle.

Expert:  Andy replied 12 months ago.
Hi

Please do this and let me know result via REPLY TO EXPERT button.

You may have already tried this ... but please repeat it exactly as explained below :

If you are using a leather (or any other) cover on your Kindle, remove it now.
Connect the Kindle in to the charger for about 5 minutes. Then, keeping the Kindle plugged in to the charger, slide (or push) and hold the switch for up to one minute or until you see the Kindle screen flicker, whichever is sooner.
Then, wait for about 3 minutes so that the Kindle can reboot.

Let me know result via the REPLY TO EXPERT button.
