When I turn my kindle the screen shows a picture of objects for about 3 seconds and then goes blank

Short summary:

  1. Hold down the power button on your Kindle continuously for 40 seconds.
  2. After 40 seconds, release the power button.
  3. Wait for your device to restart and upload any necessary updates.
  4. When your device has finished restarting, re-register it to your Amazon account.
  5. Once you have registered your device, you will be able to access your content.

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Please restart the Kindle device by holding down the power button for 40 seconds continuously. When powering back on your device, you will need to re-register it to your Amazon account, and then you will be able to access your content. Deregistering and re-registering your device will not cause you to lose any content
