Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Kindle? What have you tried so far?

From yesterday. My daughter has one also and she advised me to turn it off completely which I did but it still is not allowing me to turn the pages

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

Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

The problem you're having is often due to the software in the Kindle locking up and it needing to be rebooted. To do this, simply press and hold the power button on the Kindle for 40 FULL seconds, then release and wait a full minute for it to reboot (do no press anything else within that minute).
If this does not cure the issue, try that reset up to THREE TIMES and wait the full minute to see if it reboots.

If you're still running into problems, then try plugging the Kindle into the charger for 15 minutes, then eject it and try the reboot a couple of more times.

There is no internet where she lives; I paid the $70 one time fee she she gets books only on her e-reader. I have the e-reader with me a home, now. We also tried turning it off and back on. My husband and I both have separate Kindle Fire accounts, so we thought we could fix it. … read more
