Hi,
There are two types of Reset are present
1)Soft Reset.
2)Hard Reset.

Just pressing the Reset button using compass or needle will just do soft reset,It is not more effective in this case.You have to go for Hard Reset.

Hard Reset:All the data's will be lost once you do this.but will solve your problem.
Hold Reset for 5-10 seconds.
Flip power switch quickly 3 times. If this doesn't work.
check the light next to the power switch. If it is flashing yellow, do the same steps. It might take up to two to four tries.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further
assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

    Half of my reader's screen has gone blank and the other half is absolutely OK. I tried your solution but it is not working.
    But when I turn it on or change page the 'blank half' simply flashes for a while (shows the content it meant to be shown) and then goes blank, other half works perfectly. Please help!

    My device is only 4 months old, It was never in a pressurized situation. I don't carry it much.

SOURCE: 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.

Sorry, but the only option I know that would work is to format the device. This will erase ALL data that you have put on it. It will be restored to factory settings.

Try pressing the reset button, or holding the power button until it turns off. If that doesn't work take out the batteries and wait then put them back in.

Try Resetting it, by getting a sharp edge (something) and pressing the button on the left side of the device..if that doesnt work, try waiting for the battery to die, the reset, then try charging it again. Hope this helps.(:

If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!

Frozen! Help pleaseeee!


While it's on the SAMSUNG screen, hold down the reset hold for 10 secs until it shuts off.
If it doesn't work, try resetting it while it's connected to the PC.

Stuck with my creative zen


There's a little area at the bottom that says, reset, you take a thumbtack, and just pop it in! It will be back to working condition without losing files with no problems!
