For the past couple of years, Kindles have been designed to be unfixable by end-users. They're meant to be sent back to repair stations for everything, including battery changes. That said, if you still want to give it a try, have a look at <>.

Remove back cover from kindle

  • Hold the Kindle in both hands with the back facing you. Make sure your fingers don't press on the screen.
  • Turn off the power to the Kindle. The power button is located on the back of the Kindle.
  • Locate the rear panel that slides off the device. One edge of this wraps around the edge of the Kindle. Hold the Kindle so this side of the back panel faces away from you.
  • Press down firmly with your thumbs on the edges of this panel and push the panel away from you. It should slide off gently.

Step 3: Let charge for 12 hours
Step 4: Turn on and use the Kindle, if it shuts down before 6 to 8 hours of use, contact Amazon for a replacement.

My Kindle 3 has been freezing up a lot; I have read it may be attributed to the cover. help

First-generation original Amazon leather covers without lighting interfered with internal electronics of the Kindle 3 - the hinge mechanism in the cover that hooks into the Kindle is also used to connect the lamp built into the lighted covers to the Kindle battery as power source. The problem does not occur with covers that actually have the lamp.

You can find out by removing the cover. If the problem goes away, you should contact Kindle support for a replacement. Amazon reportedly refunds covers suffering from the flaw plus a voucher for the price difference to the lighted cover version, effectively upgrading the non-lighted cover to the lighted one.

My kindle went to sleep and now won't turn on.

Some older Kindle covers (original Amazon leather covers, non-lighted versions only) interfere with electrical contacts inside the Kindle via the hinge clamps that connect the cover to the Kindle. If you have such a cover, remove it first. If not, just continue with the next steps.

Make sure your Kindle is fully charged before you continue.
  • Note, the Kindle merely goes to a suspend mode if you give the on/off switch a short nudge only, it does not really switch off.
  • Slide and hold the on / off switch until after the power light flashes three times. This takes about five seconds.
  • If the device boots now, wait until its finished and you can use it again.
  • If the screen just goes blank, do the slide-and-hold again.
  • If the Kindle still does not boot, there is a defect that cannot be cured by a simple reset. You will need to contact Kindle support for warranty repair.
Check if your Kindle works normally again. If you removed a cover before, re-attach the cover now. Observe the Kindle's behavior, if the same thing happens again with cover attached, contact Kindle support. The reported Amazon policy in such cases is to refund your cover and add a voucher for the price difference to the lighted version, so essentially your non-lighted cover gets exchanged for a lighted one. Not a bad deal.

Not remembering my place in book suspect device is rebooting have heard of this problem caused by kindle cover (I have non lighted amazon leather version).

The lighted version gets power for the light from the hooks used to attach the device to the cover. Early versions of the non-lighted cover are reported to interfere with the hidden power connectors.

You can find out, by removing the cover and see if the problem goes away.

If you feel your Kindle suffers from this problem, contact Amazon Kindle customer support (go to HERE, click on "Kindle Support" in the upper right and on the next page find the "Contact us" button). According to other customers who had the same issue, Amazon replaces the faulty non-lighted cover for a lighted one at no extra costs.

My Kindle reboots upon start up and frequently loses last page read.

Is your kindle in an unlighted cover? Amazon Kindle support suggested to me that this exact problem may be caused by interference with the metal clips that hold the kindle cover on. After taking it out of the cover, it works just fine! This does not happen with the lighted cover apparently.
They also suggested NOT turning it off when finished reading. Hit the home key and walk away. After about 10 minutes, it will power down to sleep mode on its own. Hopevthis helps.
