Is it charged?
Hold down power button, may take up to 20 seconds, You should notice screen blink a few times, go black, finally come back to the "boy under tree" page. At this point let go of the button and let it finish resetting itself. After a minute or less it should be ready to go again.

I have a 2011 kindle fire, and it won't display a lot of web pages. Is there an update? Or some other fix?


Step 1: Hard Reset: Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds and then release.

Step 2: Power it back on: Wait until the device has completely turned off, then press the power button to restart your Kindle Fire.

If the above doesn't work, Amazon recommends that you try charging the Kindle Fire longer and then trying the hard reset again.


If you still can't get your device to work, you can contact Amazon at either amazon.com/contact-us or by phone at the numbers below:

U.S. and Canada: 1-866-216-1072 Kindle Support: 1-866-321-8851 International: 1-206-266-2992

Tip

How to reset the Amazon Kindle (useful when the unit is frozen)


Hi.

The Amazon Kindle is known for having several firmware issues, and it is not unusual seeing the unit freezing and not starting.

To start you can attempt doing a soft reset. To do a soft reset press and hold the <ALT>, <Shift>, and <R> keys simultaneously. The Kindle display should go blank for few seconds, and then restart.

If your Amazon kindle is still frozen, try resetting the unit to factory default settings with the hard reset procedure below. Procedure is different, depending on the Kindle model.

All you have to do to reset the Amazon Kindle 2 and Kindle DX is pressing and holding down the power button for about twenty seconds, then release the button and let the unit restart.

If instead you have the previous model, the amazon Kindle one, then you will need to open the back cover by pressing it and sliding it to the right with your finger, same as when you have to replace the batteries.

Behind the cover you will see the reset hole switch.

Push and hold a sharp pointed object, like a paper clip, or the tip of a pencil inside the hole button located under the battery cover.

Wait about ten seconds until the Kindle restarts and resets to default settings.

The last procedure and the picture below refer to Kindle one only. If you have kindle two, then please use the first procedure.

If the above does not fix the problem, then the unit is faulty. In that case contact Amazon to get support.

Regards.

Did you forget the password used to unlock your Kindle? If so, you'll need to reset the device to gain access. By resetting, your Kindle will be restored to factory defaults, which means your registration information and content will be removed, and all settings will return to the defaults.

To reset a Kindle Fire 1st Generation:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field four times
3. You'll be prompted to reset your Kindle Fire. Tap "Ok reset"

To reset all other Kindle Fire models:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field five times.

If you don't remember your Parental Controls password, you can deregister your device instead of resetting, as long as you're connected to a wireless network. You'll need to redownload your content, but items that were transferred via USB will be kept. Here's what to do:

1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle) page on your computer
2. Select the "Manage Your Devices" link
3. Select "Deregister" to deregister your device from your account
Sync your Kindle, then register again.
