Customer Question
My kindle had an accident...
My kindle had an accident (dropped it) some time ago. the small selector button broke off, but I wast still able to shop and read. Until now. Now the "Go to..." Option from the menu seems permanently affixed to the bottom of the page. Is there any way to get it off?

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and turn on the Kindle and try to use it.
Let me know the results please
Thank you

Thanks Richard, The power didnot go off after 35 seconds, but when it did and I restarted it the problem was gone. Margo

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
