Question about Amazon Kindle 2

Open Question

The cursor on my Amazon Kindle 2 is not working properly. It seems to be stuck in the down position so when I try to select anything on the screen it immediately goes straight to the bottom of the page where the dictionary bar is.

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.

How can i turn off my kindle fire? it seems to be frozen


I assume you've tried holding in the power button for 30 seconds?
Leave your Kindle on until the battery dies and then recharge it.
Failing that, contact Amazon - they replaced mine immediately and without quibble.

Press and hold the power button for fifteen seconds or so. Does it turn off then? If so, press and hold the power button for a second or two. Does it start to reboot then? Does it work properly now?

My kindle screen no longer works. It is charged and the side cursor works. It is about a year old and has not had much use.


if they sidebar works and you don't have an image on the screen, you definitely need a new screen. Amazon should give you a free 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.
