The screen needs to be replaced and you have to fully disassemble it to do that. You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party Amazon Kindle repair service.

SOURCE: how to unfreeze kindle screen? my kindle screen has froze

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

Try a different charger. If that fails too, you have a logic board issue. Amazon2_bing.gif should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, 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.

How do I get boos on my kindle


Hello, Reg -

Clarification: Are you asking how you can get books (not "boos"), meaning e-books, to read on your Kindle?

If so . . .

Kindle is an e-reader which is proprietary to Amazon - Amazon.com.

I have no idea where you reside - in what country. I am answering from the USA. Fixya.com receives questions from people worldwide.

For your Kindle, you will need to go to the Amazon website for where (country) you reside, then go to the Amazon department for Books, find e-books you wish to read, and order and pay for the Kindle version for those books.

Through the Kindle, owners can also access Amazon's Kindle store.

Read about other ways to obtain e-books to read on your Kindle here, including borrowing e-books from your public library to read on your Kindle:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201252760

There is more information here:
https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/fd/kcp

You may find this How Stuff Works multiple page article on "How the Amazon Kindle Works" instructive:
https://electronics.howstuffworks.com/gadgets/travel/amazon-kindle.htm

There are other options for e-books to read on a Kindle, but this information should be enough to get you started.

Best wishes.

I have a gen. 2 Kindle Paperwhite that is locked in sleep mode. Is there a way to unlock this without losing all the data?


The paperwhite is only for reading books. As to the books you never lose them unless you go to your online kindle account and delete them from there. All info on your reader is also stored in the cloud.
To do the reset press and hold the start button for 20-30 seconds. Release, you will see some flashing which is normal. Then you will see the load bar. Just leave it until it settles down. You should be able to access you books after that.

How can I permanently delete a book from my Kindle


You can permanently delete them on the Amazon website, not from the Kindle itself.
I don't understand why you'd want to, as there is a huge amount of room in the cloud for more books than you could ever read in a lifetime.

Kindle keyboard won't turn on


Put it on charge for 30 minutes or so - the orange CHARGE light should light up.

Slide and HOLD the power slide to the right/ON position for a slow count of 30.
Ignore everything, just keep it held to the right for the complete count.

Now drink a cup of tea whilst it resets.

Now slide the power switch on again as normal - it should go to the Kindle Tree logo and then the boot bar come up and then everything will repopulate.
Let it alone for a few minutes as at remembers all your books and then all should be fine.

NOTE: Every 6 months the Kindle eReaders INDEX their content (it logs every single word in every single book) yes this eats the battery.
It's why they suggest never abandoning your Kindle for long periods of time.

You may also want to try a random search on the HOME page for "kjsdjhds" or something - if it says "5 books unindexed" use the down button to highlight those books and DELETE them. They are corrupted and can be downloaded again for free whenever conveninet to you.
