1. Recently purchased Kindle paperwhite Wi-Fi: will not stay

Customer Question

1. Recently purchased Kindle paperwhite Wi-Fi : will not stay on; every time I move it slightly it goes back to screen-saver and I have to re-enter my pin number again. Can you help solve problem.
JA: What's the exact make and model of your printer, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Is not printer - is Kindle.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Has been going on since I received item 04/10/2016. Thought maybe needed Amazon updates. Been waiting to no avail.
JA: Anything else you want the eReader expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes. Cant find instructions on Kindle how to delete unwanted samples and books, and how to place read books in storage/archive.

My name is***** will assist you.

I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

This may be caused by a glitch in the firmware and can be resolved by a forced reboot, then your kindle will work normally again. press and hold the power switch for 20 seconds, then release. Then check for normal operation please.
