For Kindle 1, do this:

1) Hard reset with paper clip in the "reset" hole under back cover.

2) Totally disconnect the battery & then reconnect it.

Kindle 2:

1) Remove your Kindle from the charger

2) Slide the power switch to the right and hold it there

3) Slowly count to 15 (the switch has to be held in-place for at least 15 seconds).

4) Release the switch.
