Customer Question

I have a Kindle Fire HD. When I try to go on YouTube I pick a song or anything else I want to see. It comes up fine, but when I press the arrow to play the screen goes black and doesn't play. On the lower right corner the timer shows 0:00 as if the song or subject I chose just finished playing.

Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
First we can can soft-reset the Kindle and see if it works or not. Press and hold down (or slide) the Power button for 20 seconds and this will reset the Kindle.
Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting

Didn't work.
Expert:  Ashik replied 2 years ago.
Open the Amazon Store or App Store. Search Youtube. Install the Youtube app and can you pay videos in the Youtube app ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Still won't work. I'll try some other company. Please credit back the $26 charge to my discover account.
Expert:  Ashik replied 2 years ago.
We've not finished yet. I've one more suggestion. You can factory reset the Kindle and this will reinstall a fresh firmware. Factory reset will erase everything and install fresh software. But you can redownload your books and contents using your Amazon account you used on it.
Go to Settings > device and do a factory reset from there. After factory reset, register it with the Amazon account. Try Youtube.
If you don't want to continue, please don't rate the answer anything. Instead please contact or email to the customer support at***@******.*** for refund. Don't rate the answer anything to process refund.
Best Regards,
Ashik
