Kindle will not shut off-goes to shut off or cancel but wont move. doesnt charge well-doesnt always hold charge


Patricia, Using the power switch, you can forcibly reset your Kindle device. This reset will shut down the Kindle without accessing the shutdown command from within the Kindle's operating system, a particularly useful tool when dealing with a frozen Kindle. To initiate a hard shutdown, Kindle disconnect from its charger, slide and hold the power switch for about 20 seconds. This will force the Kindle to shut down, now it can be restarted normally.
Check links below for charging problems.

Kindle fire light cuts of after 10 minutes and it doesn't want to turn on


Held the button that turns the Kindle Fire on, and it will restart it, and the light should come back on. The only other suggestion is the "20 second" hard reset.
You can also give them a call at:

U.S. and Canada: 1-866-216-1072

How can i turn off my kindle fire? it seems to be frozen


I assume you've tried holding in the power button for 30 seconds?
Leave your Kindle on until the battery dies and then recharge it.
Failing that, contact Amazon - they replaced mine immediately and without quibble.

My screen froze on a page. It will not connect to my computer either


Dear Stephen,

These are the steps used in order to reset your Kindle (taken directly from instructions from Amazon):

"Follow these steps to restart your device. These steps will not remove content from your device.
1. Press or slide and hold the power button for 20 seconds.
2. After 6 to 8 seconds, the screen will go blank. This is normal. Continue to hold the bower button.
3. After another 20 seconds, release the power button. The charge indicator light will turn on after a few moments. For Kindle Fire, press the power button again.
4. Your Kindle will successfully restart.

You can find these steps, with a timer, here:https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=kindle_help_forum_faq?_encoding=UTF8&nodeId=200829000#restart
"
Remember that your Kindle must have some charge in order for you to be able to reset it, otherwise, connect the cable to a USB port or power charger for some twenty minutes before attempting to reset it.

Hope you may find this information helpful!

Regards,

Miguel L. Martins
