light button
« on: February 21, 2018, 10:45:54 AM »
I hate to admit but I accidently adjusted the light button to off.  Of course the screen is blank and I can't see anything to turn it back on.  Any clues as to how I might do this.   Thanks   Gei's mom

You will still be able to see the words on a Kindle if you turn the light off. Well, provided that you are in a room with a light on.  You could try rebooting your Kindle.

Yeah . . . even with the light completely down to zero, if that's even possible, you can still see the screen same as with a kindle that doesn't even have a light. I wonder if you turned the whole device off. Try pressing and holding the button to turn it back on. If it's just off it should only be 5 or 10 seconds. If it's frozen, 30-40 seconds should trigger a reboot.
