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.

Touch feature for my Kindle Fire HD is not working. I may have accidentally changed the setting? How do I fix it?


Hello Friend...

Many issues with your Kindle Touch, such as a frozen screen or issues with downloading content, can be solved by restarting your device.
1.Press and hold the Power button for a full 40 seconds.
After the first 6 to 8 seconds, the screen will go blank, which is normal. Continue holding the Power button.
2.After the 40 seconds, release the Power button.
The charge indicator light will turn on after a few seconds.

My Kindle screen is blank. When I try to turn it on, the green light goes on, then off, and the screen stays blank.


The best thing to do is contact amazon.com, place cursor on Your Account, click your account at top of list. on the right you should see Kindle Help Home; click it and it will bring up info about your kindle. On the far left in a box is CONTACT US. Fill out the form and choose how they should contact you. If you leave your phone they will call back and talk you through how to fix the problem. They may ask the return so they can work on it. Amazon help is always free. You only pay if you have to return it.

First call amazon customer support! They are really good at helping you get your kindle back up and running.
A couple questions to ask yourself Is the kindle fully charged? There might only be enough power for the green LED and not the actual kindle!
If this is your last resort:
I have never done this, and it would certainly void your warrant but I am told that there is a reset button underneath the cover of the kindle...

Make sure that the kindle is fully charged. When charging the kindle 3 will have a yellow light indicating that it is charging. When this turns green, your kindle is fully charged. Make sure your kindle is fully charged and then try turning it back on.

My kindle went to sleep and now won't turn on.


Some older Kindle covers (original Amazon leather covers, non-lighted versions only) interfere with electrical contacts inside the Kindle via the hinge clamps that connect the cover to the Kindle. If you have such a cover, remove it first. If not, just continue with the next steps.

Make sure your Kindle is fully charged before you continue.
  • Note, the Kindle merely goes to a suspend mode if you give the on/off switch a short nudge only, it does not really switch off.
  • Slide and hold the on / off switch until after the power light flashes three times. This takes about five seconds.
  • If the device boots now, wait until its finished and you can use it again.
  • If the screen just goes blank, do the slide-and-hold again.
  • If the Kindle still does not boot, there is a defect that cannot be cured by a simple reset. You will need to contact Kindle support for warranty repair.
Check if your Kindle works normally again. If you removed a cover before, re-attach the cover now. Observe the Kindle's behavior, if the same thing happens again with cover attached, contact Kindle support. The reported Amazon policy in such cases is to refund your cover and add a voucher for the price difference to the lighted version, so essentially your non-lighted cover gets exchanged for a lighted one. Not a bad deal.
