Hello, and thank you for using this service.
I will help you now.

What exactly happens when the Kindle locks up?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It starts to reset and then freezes the circle arrow and stays like that till the battery runs down or you hold the power button down till it goes black.Then it has to sit for a couple of hours till I can power it back on
Expert:  technicalcat replied 6 months ago.

Sorry for the delay in reply. Are you saying the unit has to sit on the charger for hours until you can power it back on?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No it wont come back on at first but if it sits for a little while it will come back on.
