Got it, thank you
Please try those steps to restart your Kindle and let me know if they work:
1. Press and hold the power button until either a power dialog box appears or the screen goes blank.
2. Continue holding the power button for 40 seconds, then release.
3. After a few seconds, the charge indicator light turns back on and the device reboots.
