It is none of the types listed but I do not remember the model name. I think it a fairly basic model.
Approximately 4 years ago [a present from my son]
I confirm it has not been damaged in any way or got wet.
Have opened the Kindle and accessed Settings.
There is no Model name shown but the following is in the footnote:
Version: Kindle 4.1.1(###) ###-####
I trust this helps.
Hello again Todd
Serial Number: B00E 1501 1414 1LCU
I have completed the first set of instructions and successfully re-opened my Kindle but I have been able to achieve this every time I re-charge. What I do not know is how long the charge will hold (possibly a hardware issue i.e.battery?) before I get a repeat of the problem and that might take an hour or two of reading to find out.
Should I proceed now to reset to factory settings using method 3 [I do not have a USB cable to try method 2]?
Is there any way of reinstating the original order of books in the memory?
As the Kindle is 3+years old, there might be a battery problem. Can this be remedied/changed - and if so how - or does it mean the Kindle is now past its 'design life' and need to be changed?
If the latter, not a good situation because you expect more from a product that retails at circa £100 but 'that's life'.
