Fire tablet keeps going blank, returning to the lock screen showing advert (sometimes up to ten times before it lets me said back in!) and then repeats this numerous times every hour. Any idea why? It's ruining using my fire to be honest. I think it started after I first inserted a micro sd card, but removing the card makes no difference. Help!
Hi there, Marc W. Welcome to the Digital and Device Forums!
I understand that you are experiencing problems with your Fire Tablet.
You can adjust the timer on your tablets sleep-mode from intervals ranging from 15 seconds to 30 minutes, by clicking Settings > Display > Display Sleep.
Additionally, you can choose to entirely remove the lock-screen ads. You can unsubscribe from Special Offers on your Fire or Kindle device if you do not want to receive Sponsored Screensavers and Special Offers.
Amazon is able to offer Kindle e-reader and Fire tablet models at a subsidized price by delivering Special Offers and Sponsored Screensavers, including personalized advertising. If you originally purchased a Special Offers device, you will be charged a one-time payment to unsubscribe from this service, covering the difference between the device price with and without special offers. This amount will be charged to the 1-Click payment method on your account, but will not be debited from any Amazon.com Gift Card amounts on your account.
