  • My Kindle Is Frozen. How To Resolve?

  • Tablets and e-readers occasionally freeze up or stop responding, which is not all that uncommon. Did you also just ask, “My Kindle is frozen, what to do?” Then, read this blog and know what we have for you. There are a few things you can attempt to get your Kindle Fire tablet—any model—as well as your Kindle Paperwhite or Original Kindle back up and running nicely.

    Troubleshooting Fixes to Resolve Kindle Frozen Issue
    The following are some potential fixes you can attempt if your Kindle is frozen, sluggish, or acting strangely:

    1. Restart your Kindle: The quickest fix is to restart your Kindle by pressing and holding the power button while selecting either shut down or restart. Holding down the power button for roughly 20 seconds, just until the screen flashes black, will typically cause the device to resume, even if it is completely frozen.
    2. Update Device’s Software: Verify that the software on your Kindle has been updated. For information about your specific Kindle model, go to the Kindle Software Updates page.
    3. Low Battery: Although it might seem simple, check to see if the Kindle’s battery is still full.
    4. Faulty App: If your Kindle Fire HDX or another Kindle Fire tablet starts functioning strangely, be sure to remove any recently installed apps to see if that fixes the problem. Any tablet can experience issues due to apps with poor coding.
    5. Clean the Kindle’s Screen: If the touchscreen on your Kindle isn’t working correctly, be sure to wipe it off with a gentle, slightly moist, lint-free cloth. If something interferes with the touch sensors, some devices, particularly the Kindle Touch with its infrared screen, may experience issues.
    6. Be patient: Your Kindle can be delayed if you load many ebooks at once since it is indexing them. Once it has finished indexing, wait a little while to see if it speeds back up. Remove the ebooks and try again in smaller batches if the indexing becomes stuck.
    7. Device Reset: You can wipe the device by performing a reset, and then you can start again with a clean slate if you’ve done pretty much everything and your Kindle is still sluggish and unresponsive. For Kindle e readers and Kindle Fire tablets, the reset button may be found in the settings menu under the device.
    8. Faulty eBook: Sometimes, an ebook may have a problem that makes a Kindle perform slowly or poorly. Remove any recently downloaded ebooks from your device to see if that improves the Kindle’s performance. Keep in mind that all Amazon ebooks are stored in the cloud for easy re-downloading. A corrupted file could prevent your Kindle from properly indexing the ebooks you loaded, which would significantly slow down the process. To locate the problematic ebook, try loading fewer books at once.

    Concluding…
    Finally! You won’t say “My Kindle is frozen My Kindle is frozen” anymore. The above-mentioned troubleshooting tips will help you in using your Kindle device effortlessly.
