What I Read

"selected item cannot be opened .."

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?"

RE: "selected item cannot be opened .."

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.
