Hey there
I think you might find this one useful
● Home button (bottom row of keyboard) – Return to Home menu
● Shift Alt R – Reboot the Kindle
● Shift Alt . (period) – Restart just the GUI (graphical user interface)
● Shift Alt G – Grab a screenshot. Screenshots can only be stored on an SD card. A .gif image file will be saved to the SD card.

● Shift SYM – Start a demo. Needs a special demo script on the SD card.
Home
● Shift Alt M – Play Minesweeper
● Alt Z – Rescan your Kindle for pictures
● Alt T – Show the time
● Number Keys – Jump to that page of your Home menu (1 to jump to page 1, 2 for page 2, etc.)

If your Home menu is sorted by book name or author, start typing the name or author and the Kindle will jump to it.
While you’re reading
● Alt B – Set a bookmark or clear a bookmark previously set here
● Alt T – Display the time
● Alt 0 – Enable or disable a slideshow
● Alt 1 – Start the slideshow
● Alt 2 – Stop the slidehow
● Alt Next Page / Previous Page – Go to the next (or previous) annotation, or 5% forward (or backward)

Settings
● 411 – Run a diagnostics test and display technical information about your Kindle
● 511 – Run a loopback call test
● 611 – Perform a diagnostic data service call

Font List
● J – Show or hide justification options (left or full justification)
Picture Viewer
● Shift Alt 0 – Set the current picture as your screen saver.
● F – Make the current picture full-screen

Minesweeper
● I – Move up
● J – Move left
● K – Move down
● L – Move right
● M – Mark a mine
● R – Restart with a new game
● Space – Open the current cell
● Select wheel – Move the cursor up and down
● Alt Select wheel – Move the cursor left and right
● H – Return to the Home menu

Text Input
● Alt Backspace – Clear all text typed so far
● Alt H – Move cursor left, without deleting anything
● Alt J – Move cursor right, without deleting anything
● Alt 6 – Type a ? (question mark)
● Alt 7 – Type a , (comma)
● Alt 8 – Type a : (colon)
● Alt 9 – Type a ” (double-quote)
● Alt 0 – Type a ‘ (apostrophe)

Browser
● Alt 1 – Go to current location in Google Maps. This attempts to locate you by triangulating your location against nearby cell phone towers. Note that this doesn’t always find the correct location, and displays “NOT AVAIL, NOT AVAIL” as your location (or an incorrect address). You may be able to fix this by pressing Shift Alt R to reboot your Kindle.
● Alt 2 – Find nearby gas stations
● Alt 3 – Find nearby restaurants
● Alt 5 – Find whatever you type in nearby
● Alt D – Highlight the default item (or don’t)
● Alt Z – Draw zone (or not)

Audio Player
● Alt P – Start playing or pause playing
● Alt F – Skip to next song

Search Field
These last few commands work in the search field. You only have to type enough of the word for it to be unique (for example, @wi is enough for Wikipedia).
● @help
● @web
● @wikipedia
● @store
● @time

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.

    Kindle, stuck in sleep mode


    How to Reset Kindle - courtesy Andrei Pushkin
    Kindle DX, Kindle 2 or Kindle 3: This is easy - just hold the power button (next to the headphone jack) for 15 seconds and the device will reboot.

    Reset Kindle 1: This is trickier as you'll first have to remove the back cover; you'll also need a paperclip.

    I have a Kindle DX. I turned it on today and it has a black page. How do I get it back to normal?


    Make sure that the kindle is fully charged. Plug your kindle into the wall charger, a yellow light will light up. When the yellow light turns green, your kindle is fully charged. Then try turning on your device. If the device still does not turn on, hold the power switch for 15 seconds, this will reboot the device.
