Buttons stopped working

Hi All,

I`m wondering if any of you may have come across this problem whilst
using your Kindle.
I was reading my Kindle today (the larger one) when I discovered that the top
right button (back) and bottom left (forward) have both stopped working.
To go back a page I have to press the top left and forward is the usual right
button for me.
I have Not dropped this Kindle and cant understand what is happening to it.
Any ideas Guys please?

Peace,
Andrew.

Have you tried a re-set?
Hold the on/off slide button in the on position for about 20 seconds. Then give it time to re-load itself..
See if that helps...

Its Weird but when I switched the Kindle on again it seemed
to have sorted itself out with my not trying anything!
Thank you for that tip though I will remember that. Smile

Peace,
Andrew.
