How to set password if we lost the old


Hey there,
If you cannot enter the password, you will need to reset your kindle back to factory settings. On the back panel, there is a small reset button: http://www.blogkindle.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/kindle-reset.gif
  1. First, you need something pointed like a paper clip or the tip of your earing.
  2. Now, open the back cover of your kindle by pressing it firmly while sliding it to the right using your thumbs.
  3. You will then see the reset button as shown on the picture. Use the paper-clip or your earing's pointed tip to press on the reset button.
  4. A few seconds after pressing the button, your kindle will then reboot and will be restored.
Note that you will need to reload all of your eBooks back onto the kindle after doing this.
Hope this helps, thanks for using fixya. Dont forget to rate!

My Kindle 3G seems to have frozen.


Hello,
Amazon recommends the following steps. As I'm sure you have already tried the power switch, try starting from Step #5 to do a hard reset on your Kindle.

Source: Amazon.com

  1. Unplug Kindle from power adapter or computer.
  2. Slide and release the power button. The LED light that surrounds the power button will display green for two seconds.
  3. Shut down Kindle by sliding and holding the power button for five seconds. The LED light will blink three times. Wait for the screen to go blank, then release the power button.
  4. Turn on the Kindle by sliding and releasing the power button.
  5. If Kindle is still not working, you can perform a hard reset by sliding and holding the power button for 15 seconds.
  6. If Kindle is still unresponsive, try charging Kindle before trying to restart the device once again.
  7. Make sure you have the latest software version available installed on your Kindle. The latest version is available here: www.amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
KYTechnology
