same thing here.
This is a discussion on Carousel Icons Blank within the Amazon Kindle Fire Help forums, part of the Amazon Kindle Fire Forum category; same thing here....
Sounds like a wifi signal problem. I have had this happen on and off; but it is not consistant. It does not happen when my wifi signal is strong as I think the data throughput is strong enough to transmit the full picture. When it is weak some of the icons are grey; but change as the signal gets stronger. Don't think its a Kindle hardware problem however. fdalbor
I have solved this. Go to settings, applications, home screen, select show/hide recommendations to hide
Has anyone came up with a reason/solution to this? My fire HD does the same thing. At first it was just a couple of apps here and there(they would come back after a while with me not doing anything.) Yesterday it was ever single app/book/game on my carousel. I tried cleaning my kindle, turning off and back on and nothing helped. I emailed customer service and the reply I got was basically they don't know either. She told me to turn off/on. If that didn't work, then she said I would have to de-register my kindle and then re-register. I still have my two year warranty on my kindle and would like to know if I need to get Amazon to replace or not.
Ours started doing this also and it is very annoying.....kinda takes the joy out of using it.....someone please help
