Will resetting device stop my Kindle Fire causing flood of tears? Will I lose any settings when I reset?

That may depend on why the device is causing emotional trauma. Can you elaborate?

Not emotional trauma. Playing Freecell with green background is worse than blue background. Reading webpages causes tearing at slower rate.

You should visit your eye doctor.

Do you get the same issue when using a regular computer? It may be the back lighting of the screen that is affecting you. Perhaps try with the brightness lowered...

No problems using LED monitor for hours on end. Tearing begins almost immediately using Kindle Fire.

Have you tried other tablets? Old Rocker is right - maybe you need to see an eye doctor...

I wasn't being flippant. You should be checked by your eye doctor. What you are experiencing is not normal.

I need to use eye drops frequently, and more frequently when I'm tired and/or staring at a screen. Definitely see an eye doctor, but I wouldn't be surprised if your eyes were not producing enough tears. When my eyes get too dry, they flood. This is embarrassing, as it greatly resembles crying, and it usually causes my nose to stuff up, too. It could have something to do with the proximity of the screen and your eyes' attempt to focus, as well.

I will try first Kindle, but suspect problem is associated with only my Kindle Fire. I will post results tomorrow. Thanks.

There is nothing peculiar to the Fire which would cause that problem unless you have a vision problem. Tens of millions of people use tablets with no problems. Not being critical of you, just trying to help.
