Hi there Windy! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, tablets, e-readers, and phones. I'm sorry that you're having this issue. It would be my pleasure to help you resolve this.

Hello! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, phones, tablets, and printers. This problem and many others are often the result of a "glitch" in the software. Luckily, it is easily fixed.

Please do the following:

Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button or switch in the OFF position for about 20 seconds.

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

If this doesn't work, please repeat the steps and this time hold the power button or switch in the off position for a full 40 seconds. This should reset the Kindle to factory defaults. You will know that it successfully reset to factory defaults, if it reset the Kindle back to the way it was when you took it out of the box. Did it do that? If not, please try it again, being sure to hold the power button for a FULL 40 seconds. If it did require you to set it up again, then the factory reset was successful.

If you do have to reset it to factory defaults, you don't have to be concerned about losing your books. The books that you have purchased from your Kindle will continue to be available at the Amazon website under My CONTENT if you should wish to download them again at some point in the future.

If this doesn't work for you, and if you need more help, please tell me exact model of your Kindle. If you're not sure, please look for a serial number. If you can't find it on the Kindle itself, you can find it on the Manage Your Kindle page of your Amazon account (in the Manage Your Devices section).

When I tried it, I came up with my old OS. I then tried to re-install OS 10.12 and got the message that it could not be installed on this computer
Electronics Technician: GeekGal, Electronics Support Tech replied 1 year ago

Windy I am confused. I answered a question for you in August regarding a Kindle Fire that wouldn't open a book. You never replied to me to let me know if it did or did not work and never rated my service so I was never compensated in any way. Now 4 months later you reply with a statement about the MAC Operating System. Am i missing something?
