Kindle System Restart: A Quick Fix if, for Example, You’re Not Getting New Kindle Subscription Content

Tip: A Fix of First Resort for a Multitude of Kindle Problems

I subscribe to the Kindle editions of several Kindle periodicals and blogs including, just so I can keep an eye on it to make sure Kindle subscribers are getting what I post, this one.

Several times over the past year I have noticed that new posts of mine or another blog or newspaper were not updating in a timely fashion to my Kindle, and I have occasionally received emails from subscribers if they experienced something similar. Since I generally deliver 15 to 20 posts a week to the citizens of Kindle Nation, it’s usually a Kindle problem if Kindle Nation Daily does not appear on my Home screen when when I sort by “Most Recent.”

So here’s one of those little “fix” things that seems to work without my really having any idea why it is working. Frankly, it’s one of the first fixes that I go to — before I contact Kindle Support via the web or by calling 1-866-321-8851 (1-206-266-0927 outside the US) — with almost anything I suspect is not working properly on my Kindle. Sort of like turning the computer off and on.

Step-by-Step: Kindle System Restart
  1. Make sure your Kindle is on.*
  2. Disconnect the Kindle from the USB or Power Adapter cable.
  3. Press the Home button on the right edge of the Kindle.
  4. From the Home screen, press the Menu button on the right edge of the Kindle.
  5. Select “Settings” from the Home Menu.
  6. From the Settings page, press the Menu button again.
  7. Select “Restart” from the Setting Menu.
  8. Wait a couple of minutes for your Kindle to Restart, then give your Kindle another few minutes to update files, blog posts, etc.

*If your Kindle does not come on, or seems frozen, connect it via its Power Adapter to a wall outlet and give it an hour to re-energize itself.

If you’re still hvaing problems, contact Kindle Support via the web or by calling 1-866-321-8851 (1-206-266-0927 outside the US).
