Here’s a quick fix for when your Kindle is running slow or freezes entirely:
- Press (or slide) the power button and HOLD for 20 seconds.
- After 20 seconds, release the power button. (On the Kindle Fire, press the power button again.)
- The Kindle start up screen will appear shortly.
Here are more troubleshooting tips, with pictures, including a nifty timer to count down the seconds to hold down your power button. 🙂
