Now its dead. the screens gone all scrambled. FUCK SAKE.
I am sad :(
I've had it for about 2 months.
Buy a case everyone!
I had a Google and saw this:
At first, try to recharge batteries (at least 15-30 minutes) and then try to turn on the device again. If it does not help reset Kindle.
In order to avoid accidental usage it is hidden in box. Your could see picture with instruction how to reset your Kindle on this page
Do not worry - you cannot damage your Kindle by rebooting the system. Also you can connect to Amazon
as you think that your device should be replaced.
Maybe it's just 'resting'?
I'll give it a go, though the one in the pic is an older model than mine. hhhmm
if it's any consolation my bookmark fell out and I lost my page
dead serious about going to Itchy & Scratchy Land!
I rang them up and told them the screen had stopped working. They said it sounded like my kindle was from a faulty batch, and they replaced it.
After I had sent it back, I remembered the time I had it in my back pocket on the tube, and I had sat on it. Can't be sure if it was a faulty batch or my fat arse that broke it.
So ring Amazon, yours might be from a faulty batch too.
It doesnt really help being the other side of the world. Hmph
about dropping my kinder egg and it going all scrambled and theo disapproving but then thought better of it.
Chocolate slightly dented, toy fine.
I'm sad that mass book burnings will become a thing of the past :(
poached is so much better
Ok. WELL, I got it from amazon usa, so getting a new one is going to be annoying. Basically, im gonna be travelling for the next 2 months or so, so wont be in one place to get one delivered.
SO I'm getting a new one sent to the uk, being charged for it, but they'll refund me once I send this broken one in.
I assume (read as: really fucking hope) that's what they did for yours too Trumpet?
In the meantime I might buy a new one and just sell the one that gets shipped to the UK.
Calling America was very very annoying, the guy was heavily foreign and there was a delay on the call. Vexing.
They should just hire Geordies for their call centres.
still a problem, mind you.
I just sent the old one back and they sent a new one.
I did it again. Though it just broke in my bag this time. They're flimsy huh. Amazon keeo sending me new ones. They're nice.
oops I did it again
it squashed in my bag
the screens all mushed up
oh baby baby
this ain't no VHS boy! The alternative is to read bookie wookies until you get yourself a new overpriced gadget
i just dropped my kindle
dropped, dropped, dropped...
i just dropped my kindle
i'm thinking of buying one for my dad. my dad is not very computer savvy, he wouldnn't understand plugging it into a computer.
question is can you, over wifi, buy ebooks straight on the kindle? is it as easy as selecting a book and pushing 'buy'?
