White streak of lines showing up in the kindle keyboard. There are times the screen turns black. Time to contact Amazon kindle support. Three years ago, I worked in a Call Center as support for Kindle Keyboard. Receiving calls to troubleshoot concerns such as these.
I inherited a keyboard from my mother five year ago. Confident that I will take care of the keyboard which to me is priceless. After some time I forgot and left it at the nook of my room.
Last January ,I decided to pick up where I left off and attempted to switch on my Kindle keyboard. I picked up the devise than cleaned up my Amazon Keyboard . I picked up a blue anti dust rag which I bought from a local convenience store. Finally charged up the kindle for four hours.
I noticed that the light turned green. I switched on the keyboard after checking it has been fully charged .Slowly slid the button at the bottom of my kindle. To my horror the first thing I noticed while it turned on white streaks of horizontal lines appeared at times black streak of lines showed up.
During my stint as kindle support we where told to reset the kindle by turning it off for forty seconds and switching it on. I was having the same issue as my clients had . Desperate I decided to contact Kindle support for assistance. For hours the agent from kindle support assisted me to fix the problem. At the end the agent threw in the towel and informed me I need to turn in my kindle and get a new one.
So I thought….
I decided to work on my kindle one more time. A week after I spoke to an agent something inside me made me decide to recharge the kindle. I decided to charge the kindle for another 4 to 5 hours.This time using the original Kindle USB of my Dad. Originally I was using a Samsung USB chord which I bought from a Cellphone kiosk department store.
While the Kindle is being charged I slowly adjusted the connection of the USB. Occasionally checking the progress of the power charger. Lo and behold it’s back I am using my old kindle kindle keyboard,What is the Verdict?
Get in touch with Amazon kindle Support. If all fails examine what went wrong I only found out later that my kindle was not amply charged. Thanks to the training and assistance of Kindle Support I was able to read my favorite books once again.
The Amazon Kindle Keyboard is an excellent ebook reader. I have had it for years, cherished it
when my mom gave it to me.
The kindle keyboard is primarily used as an e-book reader for kindle books. There are different way’s how to use the kindle keyboard. Some would use the kindle keyboard to browse the internet. Other’s would save mp3 to play their favorite music. I agree, you can utilize the keyboard in other ways.
I always say that if you want to make a devise last, it would be best not to regularly go beyond it’s potential. Somehow this has proven in some gadgets and devise I have used.
Here is a list of gadgets and device which I use and lasted more than five years.This has been proven : ATT Black Berry 9700 Curve, Kodak Camera EasyShare DX6490 and Gateway Notebook. My Samsung Wi-Fi 5.0 only lasted for almost three years. I brought it to a Samsung kiosk, the Samsung Customer Service informed me I practically had the Samsung 5.0 motherboard literally fried. Serves me right.
I guess it really would depend on the owner how he uses such device.
