Well as I sat down to read a bit before my dad came to pick me up, I noticed the screen saver was different than it was the night before. Then I couldn't turn it on. I plugged it in (though I had already charged it earlier this week, and it should have lasted much longer than a couple days) and nothing happened. It wasn't charging, and I still couldn't turn it on. So I had to leave for the game and left Adam to figure out what was going on. I feared I had a defective Kindle and would have to send it away or something.
So as I was enjoying myself at the game (CAPS won! And Ovie scored!) Adam went to work figuring out what was going on with my Kindle. He found a blog post that helped him solve the problem. My Kindle needed a hard reset.
For a Hard Reset:
- Slide and hold the power switch for 30 seconds
- wait for the light to switch on/ Kindle to power on
- Problem solved
Have you had to make a hard reset on your e-reader?
