How To Reset Your Kindle Fire Device?

While you might not want it, sometimes you have to reset your Kindle Fire, in order to make sure that it is working better. Some of the most common reasons why you might need to reset your Kindle Fire is slow device or technical errors. You can also contact Amazon Kindle support. However, it is better to try the thing yourself first, and see the results. So, let’s see how you can reset your device.

Soft Reset

Soft reset works great when your Kindle device is getting frozen or not working as it should. However, before you try out soft reset, make sure that the charger cable is working, and you have taken a backup of your device.
Just before you start the process, connect to your charger. This will prevent power problems from happening. Once you have connected the charger, hold your power button for 20 seconds. You can hold it longer if your Kindle device doesn’t switch off. Now charge your device for at least half an hour, and turn on your device. Once switched on, go ahead and check if all is working fine. If you still encounter problems, you would need to do hard reset or restore factory settings of your device.

Factory Reset

If you encounter problem with your device continuously, then there might be a problem. You can contact Kindle Fire help, or you can try restoring the factory setting. Before you proceed with the factory setting, make sure you have taken backup of all the information. In case you miss, you can always download all the details from Amazon cloud, if you are signed up. Once you are prepared, follow the steps given below.

• Open your Kindle ‘Settings’ menu by swiping the screen from top to bottom.
• Click on ‘more’ and then select ‘Device’
• Scroll down and select ‘Factory Reset Data’
• You need to confirm that you want to delete all the data and information available in the Kindle
• The resetting will take some time, and your data will be deleted
• Once done your device will work as good as new
• Now go ahead and login into your Amazon account to download all the data and your personalized settings


As mentioned previously when your reset your Kindle, you would lose all your data. The best way is to keep a soft backup of all your data.
