You need to do a hard reset. If eInk Kindle, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (time it). Wait for the home screen to load. This will take a few minutes.

For a Fire - press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (time it). Press the power button one more time. Wait for the home screen to fully load. This will take a few minutes.

I'm glad it helped. That is the first thing Kindle support would talk you through.

Thanks. You are a lifesaver...or at least a frustration saver.
