Please reset the kindle by holding down the on/off switch for 40 seconds (use a watch to time) ignore any messages the kindle may display, then release your finger the kindle should reboot and re-load the operating system, you may have to do this both on and off the charger and upto 4 times before it resets.

Let me know if you need more help

I am not in a position to render an opinion till I see how the Paperwhite behaves over tyhe next few days.

OK that is no problem let me know however in most cases I come across resetting the kindle is all that is required as the underlying cause was glitchy firmware

Let me know anyhow question will be open
