Probably we can try doing reset on the Kindle. If we do a hard reset on the Kindle,you will loss all the data but you can retrieve the data by logging in to the Amazon account. In order to do a hard reset please follow the troubleshooting given below.

  1. Turn OFF the Kindle

  2. Once the Kindle is completely power off, Now press and hold the Volume UP+ Power button.

  3. Release the keys when you see Amazon logo on the screen.

  4. From the men choose "Wipe Data/Factory Reset" by using Volume button to scroll.

  5. Press the power button.

  6. From the confirmation steps choose "Yes-- Delete all user data" using volume button.

  7. Press the power buttom again.

  8. (Now all the data will be wiping/erasing)Tab is now formatting.

  9. Finally, Use the power button to execute option"Reboot system now"

  10. Now we have done with the Factory reset operation.

If that doesn't work or if any other steps is unclear please let me know, So that we can try some other alternate solution. Thank you
