Hi, Sorry for the delay but I am over 80 and medical problems/routines sometimes interfere with my activities.
I am sorry but none of the three proceedures you suggested has worked. The Kindle will not come on and the 'locked in' page, a silhouette picture of a figure sitting under a tree remains fixed. I have been through the list of suggestions three times trying each item at least three times on each pass.
Have you any more proceedures I can try please?
Best Regards John
Thanks for getting in touch, Since there were no other steps I could take I followed your advice and went on line to Amazon/Kindle and arranged a phone call. The result was that they are going to replace my Kindle but sadly there are no more 'Keyboard' Kindles available so they are replacing it with a Kindle 'White' screen. There is also a wait for supplies of this model so it will be the middle of November before I receive it. Anyway all's well that ends well as Shakespeare said. The only fly in the ointment is that I have had to return my old Kindle to Amazon. I spent sixty odd years of my life involved in domestic electronics repair - starting in in 1950, before the first BBC television service began in1951and I would have liked to spent some time opening the faulty kindle up to have a look. I have managed three service organisations in my time and I like to keep up to date.
Thanks again, best regards John (midasman39 By the way, my email name is ***** ***** my Father who owned a small radio business (building and repairing) in the 1920s and 1930s. His business was called 'MIDAS RADIO' and under his guidance I took my first steps in radio and built my first radio in 1945 - two valves leaky grid detector with reactive feedback and a class A pentode audio output. using ex-services EF50 pentodes. I first got involved because at that time colour coding of small components was becoming widespread and my father was colour-blind, so I had to read component values for him. I knew the colour code for resistors and capacitors (condensers then) when I was eight.
