I have been using a Kindle Fire for the past 6/7 months. It was working great. But last week , I formatted the device mistakenly ( I was going to format flash drive ). Now my kindle is acting funny. It sometimes responds to my finger but most of the time it doesn't . I can't open a book ( even if I can, I can't re-size book's pages ). I can't scroll anything . I was wondering if somebody can give me some solution regarding this problem.

Thank you.

When you say you "formatted" it, what exactly do you mean?
What exactly did you do?
Have you tried to restart it? Hold the power switch ON for 30 sec.

Sounds like more a question for an actual Amazon customer service person, instead of just other customers.

Use this link to contact Amazon, I would recommend using the telephone option..

Rusty, I don't think that sg100's problem has anything to do with his/her battery.

rusty, there is no way anyone here can help you with the minimal amount of information you've given. Are you asking a question? Do you want help? How about starting with telling us what device you're talking about and more (much more) specifically what the problem is and how you're tried to solve it so far. Or are you just oversharing?

Ms. Erin @ Thanks for your reply. I have a request to you : please don't assume or bet anything unless you are 100% sure. I didn't do anything that you thought I had done. I was going to format my flash drive. But I formatted kindle drive instead (used quick format thing).

Again, thanks for your reply.

What "quick format thing"?

Probably something on his/her PC.

sg: Formatting will erase what's on a drive.

Since you'd rather rebut a controversial post than share more information as requested, it would seem you're more interested in controversy than help.

By formatting the Kindle Fire by mistake, I'd bet that you wiped out some of the crucial operating system commands. Can you get to the Settings menu and try to "Reset to Factory Settings/Defaults" (I don't know the exact wording)? Barring that, you might want to call Kindle CS for assistance--they may be able to do something for you to get your Kindle running as it should again.
