Anytime you get an error that says the Kindle is not connected, it simply means that it is not seeing an Internet signal.

Ensure that your Kindle Fire is connected to your WiFi network.

If it is still behaving that way, please reboot it and try again.

My kindle is connected to wi-fi. I can get on the internet but I can’t open my email. It says-connection problem.
Electronics Technician: Kraig, Engineer replied 4 months ago

There seems to be an issue with the mail server connection. This happens from time to time and is usually only temporary. In such a case, try accessing your emails at a later time. You can also try powering down and restarting your Kindle as that has been known to fix connection issues in the past.

You can also try accessing your emails on a PC. If you are able to open them, then it means the Kindle needs to be rebooted.

I haven’t received emails since Dec2017. How do I reboot it?
Electronics Technician: Kraig, Engineer replied 4 months ago

Hold down the power button until you see a menu appear on the screen. Tap on Reboot or Restart and confirm.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
That didn’t work. I didn’t get a menu, just a black screen .
Electronics Technician: Kraig, Engineer replied 4 months ago

Okay.

Hold down the power button until the Kindle shuts off.

Wait 10 seconds and then press the power button to turn it back on.
