Kindle Skills - Reset

June 13, 2010 Cindy O'Neal
Just in Case:
If your Kindle 2 ever locks up and you can't do anything. This is how to reset it.
  • Make sure it is unplugged
  • With your finger, slide the power switch on the top to the right and hold.
    * At 5 seconds (about), the screen will go blank
    * At 15 seconds, let go of the switch. Do nothing else but watch the screen.
    * At about 30 seconds, the screen will begin to flash
    * At about 35-40 seconds, the Kindle logo will appear and the loading bar will begin
    * At about 1 minute 30 seconds (this may vary depending on how many books you have on your     Kindle) the Home screen will reappear.
    * By about 2 minutes your Home screen should be fully loaded and your device should be finished checking for updates, etc.     
Wouldn't it be nice if Life came with a reset button???
