Customer Question
My Kindle has had...

My Kindle has had a partial image blocking a view of the entire screen for a week or so. Can this problem be fixed?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

I would have to look that up. It is registered among my Kindle devices.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I have tried to renew the software by holding down the start button, or whatever you call it.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

Do you need model number and date of purchase?

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

This symptom can indicate several possible issues: an internal hardware failure, a low/faulty battery, or just a simple memory/firmware glitch.

The first step here will be to attempt to reboot the kindle. This is done by pressing/sliding and holding the power button for 20+ seconds, or until the screen flashes (usually with an image of a tree), then release. Give the kindle about a minute to start back up. Note that you may need to repeat this process 4-5 times for the reset to take effect. Let me know if the problem persists, we can then try some further steps.

Thanks,

Nathan
