    My Fire Is Locked Up - Help! :(

    After several really fun days of learning alot about my cool new Kindle Fire and trying to set it up just the way I want, I've now finally managed to completely lock-it-up while loading another book.

    It has been completely unresponsive for over an hour and just sits there looking pretty, while displaying the main carousel page. The battery is fully charged and the only thing that I know I haven't tried yet is to depress the power button for 20+ seconds, which I read someplace may do a complete factory-restore, but at the cost of possibly loosing everything, including all the items I've purchased and already loaded.

    As a long shot, I wonder what the Fire's response would be if it ran out of memory in mid-stream of loading something, though hopefully a nice, reasonable warning message would more appropriate instead of a complete lock-up?!

    Any ideas...thx!

    Do the 20 sec. reset you will not loose anything. Everything you have loaded is on the Amazons cloud under manage my Kindle. If you need to you can recover your sutff from there.

    Kim, I was afraid the 20 second power-down would intitiate a reformating og the whole device, but you were right, it was really just a complete pull-the-plug type power down and seemed to work well. My setup is still intact, though my Fire has exhibited some additional screen communication instability, so not sure if that is just the nature of this unit or not. Thx again!
