Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible!

This is usually 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 a full 40 seconds, even after the screen goes black, then release.Then press the power button to restart if the device does not start up again on its own.

If the screen is still unresponsive, plug in your device using the USB cable connected to a wall outlet power adapter. Let the device charge for 15 minutes, unplug it, and then try to restart again.

Held for 40 seconds then plugged in. tried to start again. Totallly black but when I plugged in to charger it turned on immediately.
Not tech savvy and there is a message that says outdated modules update detection modules. What to do?

okay, great!

That sounds like the charging system just needed the reset.

Let it charge for awhile and it should be fine.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating!

Please let me know if you need any other assistance.

Do I need to do anything about the outdated module notice? If so, what? My tablet says it is 100% charged Should I keep charging?

yes, keep charging for a few more minutes. The outdated module notice is not an issue. It should update automatically if needed.
