Hey

Well there are a lot of reasons why the Kindle screen freeze.

most of the times it happens when the Kindle is trying to upload some big files like photos, movies, flash etc. in this case all you have to do it to wait and it will un-freeze in couple of seconds.

Another Very common is that the Kindle Memory is full and he can't respond until some of the memory gets free, this usually will happen once you click too many times on the screen, the poor Kindle is overwhelmed with orders and doesn't know what to do, this happens to "newbies" with the kindle.

A lot of these freezing problems can be fixed by resting your Kindle, you can do a Soft reset press the Alt-Shift-R keys at the same time. (Shift is the one that looks like an up arrow.) If that doesn't work, plug your Kindle into the charger and try again.

You can also do a Hard Reset take the cover off the back and insert a paperclip in the little hole. Hold for 10 seconds, you may need to try again with the Kindle plugged into the cradle.

For the Kindle DX Hold the top on/off switch sliding it to the left and keep to the left, hold for 60-80 Sec, Release it. Wait a minute - the DX will flash. Then the screen will go black and then the main Kindle screen (the guy sitting under the tree) will appear and the start up thermometer bar. Once that's completed, the main menu will come on, and your books will be rstored in batches over the next couple of minutes

And of course you can always Call Amazon Customer Service at 1-866-321-8851, 6a-10p PST, 7 days a week

Hope this will be helpful

If all attempts trying to unfreeze it fail, you may have a logic board issue. Are you sure the Kindle powers up? It may show something on the sreen, even if it is not turned on (e-ink screen does not need a powersupply to show an image). Try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.

I have the same problem. The screen saver is partially frozen on the screen on the upper right corner and then blank down the rest of the right side. The rest of the screen is readable and I'm able navigate (turn pages, select different books, etc).

Did you figure anything out? Help!

Non responsive (battery is fully charged). Screen has frozen up.


There is a reset button at the bottom (insert paper clip in pinhole). If all attempts trying to unfreeze it fail, you may have a logic board issue. Are you sure the Kindle powers up? Try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.

there's a little pinhole at the bottom. insert a paper clip to do a hard reset. Or remove the battery and re-insert it to the same effect.
