My Kindle Fire just locked up, it won't turn off, and the shelf appears empty (I had countless books on the shelf). It was fully charged when this happened. The time is frozen at 10:32p.m.!!

I download free stuff like apps and things like that and then my kindle will just freeze! Then it takes like 2 days for it to un freeze and when it does, when I try to use the apps, it says " unable to open right now, please download this app again." Then I have to delete the app and TRY to download it again. Half the time, the appstore doesn't even open. How do I fix this?

@Carly - Have you tried rebooting? Press and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds, then release and let it shut down. Press again to restart. If that doesn't help, you should contact customer support. Click the 'Help' link at the top or bottom of any Amazon site page, then press the 'Contact Us' button.

I turn my kindle on and after I'm able to click on a book it goes back to a black screen with kindle fire on it. I've tried rebooting it but it didn't help.

I have transferred books from my computer via a usb cable and they do not show up anywhere on my kindle. I tried to put them in the books directory and the document directory. How do I access them from the kindle fire?

Got my Kindle Fire for Christmas and have had no problems until this week. It has quite automatically connecting to my home wireless network. I have tried turning it off and back on, I have tried manually connecting by entering my password. I don't think I have changed any settings, but .... any suggestions for other things to try?

My grandson is visiting and his kindle fire all of a sudden stopped charging. It's not the charger or the electrical outlet. We also powered down and turn back on...didn't work. Ideas? Thanks!

Thanks for the help, somehow my kindle died during the time I slept. I charged it, and right before I went to bed, I unplugged it and turned it off. It wouldn't turn on the next day, so I combined Pineapple's and NotThePodZombie's methods and it worked.My kindle is now back on and fully functional, thanks guys!
