kindle keeps resetting
« on: February 26, 2018, 08:56:13 AM »
I have a Paperwhite (7th Generation), and when putting it to sleep after reading (single push of the power button, turning off and to the screen saver), it has froze up (nothing showing, but I could tell it wasn't completely off) - then after a couple minutes, it blinks and the reset screen (silhouette picture of a tree with someone sitting beneath it reading) with progress bar at the bottom, and it inches to the right, then comes back on.

It's done this twice (not in a row).

Is this indicative of the whole unit getting ready to stop functioning?

I normally do a complete shut down - press and hold power button in, then turn off. Nothing has gone wrong when I do that.

It's sounds more like a Quirke than an indication of impending doom, factory reset coming up i think,
