Last night I was using my Kindle - reading the USA today news app - when the app force closed (stopped working). I tried to then open my email and that, too, would not run.

So I thought I had better reboot the kindle. I shut it down, waited a few minutes, then turned it back on.


Now it sits and sits at the logo screen and goes no further.


HELP!

Disconnect the charger, hold the power switch "on" for 30 seconds, release. If it is a Fire, click once. Wait for restart.

Yes, in between the two plugs. Tried that too - didn't change a thing.


I'm considering trying to open it up and remove the battery. I understand there is some sort of button under it, too. But I'm a bit scared to try.

I'd go ahead. Nothing to lose. After that I would use it for target practice, as a warning to other household electronics.
