Step - 1:Reset your KindleIf your Kindle is locked, frozen or simply won't respond, try hard-resetting your device. It's a simple process. Press down the power button and hold it for at least 20 seconds. Try turning on the device after that. If it doesn't work, try holding down the button for more than 30 seconds now. That will probably make your Kindle work again.
Step - 2: Factory reset the KindleIf soft resetting doesn't work and still your Kindle won't turn on, your next step is to factory-reset your device. Factory reset will erase all your data and apps. To factory reset your device, go to Quick Settings>More>Device>Reset to Factory Defaults.
Note that all your data will be erased from the device. However, you will still be able to download your purchased books from your Amazon Cloud.
Step - 3: Charging or Battery Issues:Make sure that your Kindle has the juice that it requires. It's a common mistake that can happen to anyone. It's probably that simple, you forgot to charge it and that's why your Kindle won't turn on. So, try plugging in your device and give it another go. If that's not the case and there is an issue with your Kindle other than juice, well you may need something more than that.
If you're thinking about taking it in your hands and doing the repair yourself, there are some things you should know before going into that. Meanwhile, hold that thought. You will find tutorial videos on YouTube on how to DIY fix your Kindle problems. The step by step tutorial videos might be accurate, but sometimes they're not.
