"selected item cannot be opened .." - whittycat - 20 Jan 2017 12:05 PM

I have a Kindle 1.. Suddenly when I open a book it says "selected item cannot be opened" and suggests that I delete it and rel;oad from the archive but when I do that the result is the same and this is the case for any book I try to open .   My question is: "Can this be fixed or is the Kindle broken?"

You could try rebooting your Kindle first, delete the book from your device beforehand, then press and hold the  power button for 20-30 seconds. Then on your PC go to the Manage Your Content and Devices page on the Amazon website and re-send the book to your device.
