Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.

Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the Kindle and connect.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

How about we just cancel card as well. Think you have been misleading. Thank you
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

I gave you a set of instructions to do, you asked me to make an offer to call you then you reply that I mislead you?

Why don't you just go and do the initial instructions I gave you as opposed to these accusations against me?

Very Strange, but I'll process a refund

Don't think you understood what my problem is, turning off my Kindle was not going to solve my problem! It certainly was not worth an additional charge.
