Kindle freezing explained
If your Kindle suddenly stops responding to commands, it’s likely frozen. Although it can be frustrating when this happens, there are a few things you can try to get it working again.
First, try restarting your Kindle by holding down the power button for 20 seconds. If that doesn’t work, connect your Kindle to a power source and then try restarting it again.
If your Kindle is frozen after restarting, you can try factory resetting it. This will reset all your data and settings, so back up any important files first. To factory reset your Kindle, go to Settings > Device Options > Reset Device.
If none of these methods work, you may need to contact Kindle support for further assistance.
