Kindle stuck on a book page

19 July 2021 16:37 (GMT)

Hello everyone !
I recently bought a faulty 8th generation Kindle (SY69JL) to try and repair it.
It seems to be stuck on a book page, and does not respond when touched. The charging LED turns on when plugged with a charging cable. When I try to hold down the Power button to try and reboot it, the LED goes like this : green - blinking green - blinking orange - green... and the sequence repeats as long as I press the Power button.

Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance Smile

Prime reading problem

27 June 2021 16:50 (GMT)

Hello folks, 
Where do I find my prime reading books on my Paperwhite? 
If I go to Prime Reading on the Kindle store and select a book and click the "read for free" button, it tells me that I have ten books already and to remove one. The problem is, I can't find them on my device unless I actually do a search, then it opens the book and displays it on the home page. Up to that point though, I can't see them anywhere. It's not downloading them because I can search for it whilst offline and it does the same. 
I'm probably being a complete plank but any help would be great.

Problem re-registering a Kindle

02 February 2021 15:22 (GMT)

I am posting this on the keyboard forum because there is not one for the Second Edition Kindle and the menu is the same.
I have an old Kindle, with a manual keyboard, that is failing occasionally; my wife had a Second Edition Kindle which I gave away when she died, and which I have now been given back that I could use instead. My problem is that I cannot re-register it – the device thinks it is still registered but I deleted it from The Amazon list when I gave it away. The manual gives instructions as to how to re-register a Kindle that had been registered to someone else, the method being to do it through Menu/Settings, but unfortunately the facility “settings” does not appear in the menu – the manual must be the correct one as it is installed on the Kindle. I have spent some time on the Amazon Kindle site but cannot find a way of getting help – none of the FAQs apply. Can anyone help – maybe one way would be a factory reset if that is possible, but that would delete all of the books and I do not know how to do it.

Resilience by Patricia J Scott

20 November 2020 10:05 (GMT)

Life is difficult for everyone but for some, it comes as a hard test. I came across a beautiful book about a woman who is a survivor and went through a liver transplant. The book, 'Resilience: A story of surviving serious medical conditions and living life to the fullest' tells how she managed to bring back the charm and happiness of her life along with health. It is a must-read if you are looking for something motivational and health-related.

One More Chance! an amazing romance novel to read.

20 November 2020 06:11 (GMT)

Romance novels are the best escapist fiction. Today I want to recommend a romance novel that is of a kind love story. The novel is One More Chance: A Bodyguard’s Story, written by an amazing lady Suzanne Girard Holmes. The love story is inspired by Suzanne’s son and is based on a Marine Sergeant falling in love with a popstar just when he decided not to be in the same position in his life ever.

Crime Fiction by Brian Brady

13 November 2020 12:04 (GMT)

I recently came across a crime fiction named ‘oh what a tangled web’ written by Brian Brady. Brian Brady is a former police officer and the story revolves around the crimes and murders committed by a serial killer who preys on victims of human trafficking, especially underage girls. The story is pretty interesting and captivating. I would suggest to all the fans of crime fiction to give it a read.

Box is a near future sci-fi set in a world that’s all too close to reality. Mankind has been replaced in the workforce by Biotekk units. As humanity dwindles and begins to realise what we’ve lost, one of the units declares itself to be human.

Thursday – The Human Race
A mysterious website, an oddly-worded challenge that asks if you have a motorcycle and want to earn a share of a million pounds. How far would you go?

Friday – Hawk-Eye: Traffic
A man wakes up in a secret underground bunker with no memory of who he is, or what he’s doing there. What is the Hawk-Eye? Who are the strange, terrifying people in charge? Why are the police terrified of a new drug that’s loose on their streets?
More importantly, why isn’t he wearing any clothes?

All links to Amazon are here on this page.
