SOURCE: I still can't get my Kindle to turn on even after

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. 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.

It will not power up. was on the charger most of the day.


To wake up or turn on your Kindle, slide and release the power switch again. If your Kindle does not power on or is unresponsive during use, try resetting the device by disconnecting your Kindle from any power source, and then sliding and holding the power switch for 15 seconds before releasing.

My Kindle Fire HD won't turn off. I was watching a movie on Netflix and the picture just froze


Turning Off the Kindle
Quickly sliding the power switch on the Kindle enters and resumes sleep mode. If your Kindle enters a non-responsive state when sliding the power switch, you've likely entered sleep mode. Try sliding the power switch and holding it for four seconds to shut down the device. If it still does not shut off, you may need to reset the Kindle.

Resetting the Kindle
The power switch also serves to reset the device. Before resetting the device, disconnect it from any power sources, such as an AC outlet or your computer's USB connection. Sliding the power switch and holding it for 20 seconds forces the Kindle to reset and power down. However, a nearly depleted battery may prevent this action. If the Kindle still doesn't shut off, try charging it for several hours and resetting it again.

How to unlock kindle fire


Forgot my password

Did you forget the password used to unlock your Kindle? If so, you'll need to reset the device to gain access. By resetting, your Kindle will be restored to factory defaults, which means your registration information and content will be removed, and all settings will return to the defaults.

To reset a Kindle Fire 1st Generation:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field four times
3. You'll be prompted to reset your Kindle Fire. Tap "Ok reset"

To reset all other Kindle Fire models:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field five times.
3. When prompted to reset your Kindle Fire, tap "Reset"

To reset a Kindle 2nd Generation, Kindle Keyboard, or Kindle DX:
1. Slide and release the power switch to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Enter "resetmykindle" in the password field and press the enter key on the key pad
3. Wait several minutes while your Kindle restarts

To reset a Kindle (5-way controller):
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Select the keyboard key once on the password screen and enter "resetmykindle" in the password field, then select "Enter"

To reset a Kindle Touch or Kindle Paperwhite:
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Tap the password field to bring up the onscreen keyboard
3. Enter "111222777" and select "OK"

If you don't remember your Parental Controls password, you can deregister your device instead of resetting, as long as you're connected to a wireless network. You'll need to redownload your content, but items that were transferred via USB will be kept. Here's what to do:

1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle) page on your computer
2. Select the "Manage Your Devices" link
3. Select "Deregister" to deregister your device from your account
Sync your Kindle, then register again.

If you need help with your Wi-Fi password, please contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer.

Remove back cover from kindle


  • Hold the Kindle in both hands with the back facing you. Make sure your fingers don't press on the screen.
  • Turn off the power to the Kindle. The power button is located on the back of the Kindle.
  • Locate the rear panel that slides off the device. One edge of this wraps around the edge of the Kindle. Hold the Kindle so this side of the back panel faces away from you.
  • Press down firmly with your thumbs on the edges of this panel and push the panel away from you. It should slide off gently.
