When I picked up my Kindle to read it today, the screen was on and frozen. I tried to turn the page and nothing happened. I tried turning it on and off and nothing happened. My husband held the power...


Your husband switched the device off. If you give the power switch a short nudge only, it goes in and out of "stand-by" mode, it is not really switched off.


Try to slide and hold the power switch again, until after the power light blinks three times. Should happe after ~5 seconds of holding. The Kindle should restart now --- takes about a minute, but you will see a progress bar to keep you happy during the delay.

The kindle will not turn on. It is charged, but the green light on the power switch doesn't light and it won't turn on. Is there a lockout button?


Shift the power button and hold it for a slow count of 15 (at least 15 seconds) and then release it. It will look like nothing is happening after you release the power button but in 5 or 10 more seconds it will reset and reboot.
