I received four messages today about people not receiving the blog for a number of days on their Kindles; as most of the people who read this and my other blogs read them on their Kindles, I am sending this out to each of my blogs. I am going to set this message up to go out monthly: if you’ve seen it before and know what I’m talking about, or if you’re just plain ‘ole tired of seeing it don’t worry – I’ll be back with a new post soon.
Don’t have a Kindle? Well, you should get one! They range in price from $79 – $379 depending upon the number of bells and whistles you get. You can click here to give the kind of Kindle I use a look.
There seems to be a Kindle problem for a lot of folks – that is, what do you need to do if (a) this or any other blog or newspaper all of a sudden stops updating each day on the Kindle, and (b) you can see the blog or newspaper post in the to be downloaded list of the “Manage Your Kindle” section of the Amazon website and for some unexplained reason it doesn’t show up on your Kindle..
You will need to write this down, or try to memorize it, because if it happens to you I’m willing to bet you won’t remember unless you’ve reset your Kindle a few times!
If this happens to you, you will need to reboot your Kindle. Here is how you do it:
- Click the “Home” button to get back to your home screen.
- Click the “Menu” button, and select “Settings.”
- You will see several options, but “reboot” is not one of those options. Press the “Menu” button again.
- You will have several options, but choose and click the “Restart” button.
Once you do that, it will take about 1-2 minutes to reboot. Make sure your wireless is on, and the Kindle will go look in the Amazon store to see what is pending to be downloaded and viola! You should be back in business. If you ever need to restart your Kindle, I hope this helps!
