Has your Amazon.com Kindle stopped working? If you can’t get it to turn back on even when it’s plugged in to charge, it may seem like the eReader has died, but maybe not.
The next time your Kindle won’t turn on, slide the power button to the right and hold it for a full 30 seconds, then release it. (If you use a lighted book cover, disconnect it from reading device, as the cover uses the Kindle’s battery.)
Once this is done, wait another 10 seconds, then turn the Kindle back on. It should take you through a reboot process, and you’ll be back to reading in no time.
Note: These same instructions can also help if the Kindle’s screen becomes frozen or when trying to get rid of a goto box on the bottom half of the screen.
Did you know you can add other books to your Kindle?
