Christmas this year yielded a lovely surprise in the form of a new Amazon Kindle and I am very pleased with it. The quality of the screen is excellent and the gadget itself is very intuitive and easy to use.
How to fix the Amazon Kindle 'White Screen of Death' issue
The solution was to slide the power slider and hold it for about 30 seconds until the device reset itself. When this happens you will see the Amazon Kindle 'Tree' logo appear and a progress bar. Once it has reset all will be back to normal.
If anyone has any other ideas as to why this happens or has other solutions please leave a comment below.
UPDATE: If this fix doesn't work you can find other solutions on Amazon's Kindle Forums.
