The steps for performing factory reset of a Kindle are quite easy:
- From the home screen, select Menu.
- Select Settings.
- Select Menu again then select Reset Device.
The problem appears when your screen is frozen and you don’t see anything or almost anything.
I had this situation that only tiny part of my screen was still responsive. I wasn’t able to see most of the menu and settings sections, but at least I managed to see:
- When my Kindle is awaken
- When its menu is or isn’t opened up (I didn’t see many menu items though)
- Which page of Settings I am currently at
This allowed me to figure-out a key combination needed to blind-reset my Kindle.
If your Kindle has a completely dead screen and you don’t see anything of above then sorry, this article won’t help you.
