Hi, I was buying a book on my Paperwhite this morning and I got a window saying I had to register the Kindle to buy. Since I had just bought two books with no problem it seemed like something was wrong so I turned it off and restarted. Now when I start I get the screensaver but I can't get past it. Just the screensaver (the light is on), but I can't get past that point.

What can I try next?

a reboot

make sure it's charged, unplugged and hold the power on fro a full thirty seconds then wait until it comes back

Thank you, CBRetriever! My second (spouse's) Kindle did a similar thing when a book was being moved from the cloud - froze and went no further. his tip really helped us!
