Stupid Kindle, really hate it at the moment
« on: October 17, 2020, 07:45:07 pm »
So for months now my Kindle hasn't automatically loaded new purchases. Also, if I go to manage c/d and select title(s) and click deliver it does nothing. The only way to get stuff into the Kindle is to go to it and set it to show all and touch them in that list. It queues them and loads them. Nothing else works.

So I finally gave up and decided I'd reset it even though that means losing the library from it and resetting everything. Did it. Worked fine, all reset. Went to c/d and chose a dozen titles and clicked deliver. Nothing. Still had to go in the Kindle to display all and pick them there.

Really unhappy with Kindle and Amazon. Instead of participating with all the other big tech companies in politicking they need to tend to their damn business and products. Maybe it's time to learn a new universe and go to another reader that doesn't social engineer, just tends to their actual business.

    See what time the Kindle thinks it is - it may be that the algorithm it uses to figure out what to download is based on when it thinks it last looks...

    I've had similar problems in the past - IIRC, a reset of my router and/or a restart of the Kindle took care of the issue.

    As it came back to life from the reset it first said the time was GMT and 1-2 seconds later it automatically adjusted to CST where I live so the time is correct.

    I feel your pain. I've had this issue for months now, and even created my own thread for it.

    I'm disappointed that a device reset didn't work for you. Like you, I've been putting that off. Now I won't bother.

    Amazon really needs to get their [crap] together. (Edit: I've never tried to use profanity on Kboards before. I guess this is what happens if you do.) ;)

    I'll try the clock suggestion - nothing to lose - but I'm pretty sure mine is already set correctly too.
