I have a 7th generation kindle, when the log in screen comes on the screen won’t respond and I can’t log in. I have gently cleaned the screen and also used the 40 second reboot several times, but still no luck. Any advice?
I have a paperwhite kindle (I think 7th generation). I haven't used it for a while. I recharged it before leaving on holiday, but was flat when I opened up the cover 24 hours later. I rebooted it by pressing on/off switch for 40 secs. Eventually it started working again. Just got back from a day out & same thing has happened. Charge has gone up from 9% to 12% whilst I have been writing this. However I suspect tomorrow I will have to do the same thing again. I have a cover to put it into sleep mode. Maybe I should switch off when I am not using it instead of using the cover? Either way I am fed up. Any suggestions for other more reliable readers?!
Hey there #Corncrake. Kindle readers do several "secret" things in the background that perhaps are affecting your use of the device. Before suggesting options, I need to highlight that you can download FREE kindle applications for computer, pc, apple, android devices so you can continue to enjoy your library for free on any device logged in to your amazon account.
- INDEX - every eReader device does a secret "index" thing to find every word on every book downloaded on the device (to help searches). If you have many books downloaded then INDEXING will eat your battery.
- SEARCH - use the Search facility on your device to see if everything is downloaded and indexed ok - use the MENU option to search for garbage like JAYHGSIG - if it says "0 found" the that's it. If it says "5 not found" then you have 5 corrupt download. This will eat battery. Use the DOWN option to delete those 5 (or however many) books downloading. Then download them again one at a time slowly.
Hope the above helps. CW/.

I wonder why someone would follow their own alternative forum profile.
