Hey, all. I tried looking for a solution to my specific problem, but couldn't find one. I'm currently reading a book that I manually uploaded to my Kindle Oasis, and I was wondering if there's a way to upload the highlights to Goodreads? Even though I am on wi-fi, the option to share is greyed out. Does it have to be a book in my Amazon Kindle library for me to share? If anyone could offer advice, that would be awesome. Thanks in advance!

Did you do a hard restart? By this I mean hold the power button in until screen starts flashing, even after get the box do you want to restart. Hold it in until the screen flashes worked for me a couple days ago and haven't had issues since.

Yes, this was the only way I could get the Kindle to restart, since I couldn't access the menu anyway.

Though, I no longer have the Oasis, since I returned it this morning. :/

No, there wasn't any way for me get to the menu because my touch wouldn't do anything. If it had a pinhole like my old DX, I would have tried it. But I suspected that after multiple restarts, it wasn't going to be an issue I could fix.

So, they just gave me a full refund, since they couldn't replace it. My expected date for a new one from Amazon is between July and August. :/ I'll have to do with a borrowed Kindle in the meantime, I guess.

Alas, it is still being unresponsive. I kept it charged overnight, and have restarted it. It looks like I'm headed to BB today when they open.

I went ahead and placed an order with Amazon last night in case things didn't turn out. Betsy has generously offered to lend me her Kindle. I'm trying to see if my brother will mail me his old K Touch.

Thank you all for your support during this unfortunate time. It's nice to be able to rant about these things.

It updated the first day I got it. I'll try it out, but I'm not going to be too hopeful.  :(

Let's Talk Kindle! / Kindle Oasis Screen Unresponsive?

So, I was using my Oasis today and noticed I couldn't get the brightness to pop up. Upon further poking at the screen, it appears the screen has become unresponsive. I restarted it several times to no avail. I'm at a loss at what to do because I bought a Merlot from Best Buy. And of course, they're sold out in all colors. So, I'm guessing I won't get a replacement. And it's a Merlot too, so I won't get one from Amazon until at least July. I'm just wondering if this has happened with anyone else. I'm extremely upset because I was planning on taking it with me on my 2 week trip next week. I don't even have a backup Kindle to use. I'm just lost now.


I am ordering a Kindle for my beloved sister, who is overseas. However, I want the Kindle registered to my U.S. account so she can buy books and have them charged to me. Will she run into any problems and will I incur any additional fees?

Thank you kindly for your assistance.

It should work, as long as you buy the Kindle from your Amazon account.

My 3G Walnut SO left KY overnight and is currently in Little Rock for delivery tomorrow.

I also deal with apartment front desk staff receiving my packages,but they are pretty good. They have some reason to be snotty, I saw a news report last Christmas that the rise of online shopping made real problems for apartments during Christmas. They were getting so many packages they didn't have space to store them all, and some buildings were just no longer accepting packages!

My (old) apartment complex consistently gave out packages to the wrong people. I recently moved out, and they lost (gave away to another resident) a pair of expensive running shoes a month prior. I was furious. I was glad I moved before my Merlot shipped. I would have probably gone crazy if they had lost it. And they claim no responsibility because of an addendum they sneakily make you sign when you're signing your lease. Just beware of what you're signing!

I canceled my order for the Merlot on Amazon after I received mine from Best Buy yesterday. Hopefully someone gets bumped up!

So, I left my Kindle Oasis on my bed, and at this point, I've only had it in my possession for about an hour. One of my dogs come bounding onto the bed and knocks the Kindle off the bed. Needless to say, I was freaking out, but it looks like the cover protected it. The only damage appears to be some scuffs on the corners of the cover, but it makes a bit sad since I only had it for an hour, and I already damaged it. So for those who have pets or children, make sure you put yours somewhere safe!

I have a feeling when I get home, I won't have the patience to record a video. I'm gonna want to rip it open.

I was wondering did anybody get the extra warranty on their Oasis?  I'm not sure whether to or not.
Thank you

I only got it once for my Kindle DX. And I actually ended up using it when my brother stepped on the screen (in the cover!), which rendered the screen unusable. It was worthwhile for me because it cost way more than the Oasis, and it was a much larger screen. However, I didn't get it for my Oasis. I don't see myself needing to, at this point in time.

I'm thinking about doing an unboxing video for you guys, but I don't feel remotely qualified to do so. Haha.

Mine says it's out for delivery! Ahhhh! I won't be home when it probably gets delivered though.

Ah, Geez! It's in Alexandria!. . . . literally 7 miles from my house . . . . fingers crossed they decide to put it on a truck TODAY -- though it still shows Monday as arrival day.

If they weren't closed (to customers) today . . . . . . :( :o :) ;) ;D

Mine is also extremely close to my house. It hasn't been updated since 1:38 PM yesterday. Still says Monday as well. I'm not even gonna be home until tomorrow, but still. It would have been nice to have it waiting for me when I get home.

So is mine, Ann!

Reading all of these is making me antsy like no other!

If you're still looking for an ACT prep book, I highly recommend Kaplan's. If you can, I would also suggest having him enroll in an ACT prep class. I picked up a lot of tips and tricks in the classes. I think the classes were a great investment for me. Even though I did well on my first go around, I got a perfect score my second time around.

Looks like the Merlot sold out, just as I had suspected. I ordered mine yesterday, as soon as I had heard.

OH MAN, I am so, so tempted to get it from Best Buy. Mine from Amazon isn't due to ship until June 25th! But I pre-ordered it on their payment plan, and I love that I can pay in smaller installments rather than all at once, so I don't know if I want to switch or just try and be patient.

I wonder if Best Buy will run out, as I expect people will rush to Best Buy (once they find out). Mine wasn't until September, and I needed it for my May trip, so obviously that wasn't going to work. If you can wait, then do it.

Thank you for posting this information.  I just checked, and I can have the wifi + SO in the Merlot on April 30 rather than June 21.  Decisions, decisions.  Has anyone had any issues with buying a Kindle at Best Buy in the past?  I know Amazon still honors the warranty, but are there any other issues of which I should be aware?

I wonder how everyone is getting the April 30th pick-up date. The soonest I have is May 4th, and my expected delivery date is May 2nd.

I'm waiting to cancel my Merlot from Amazon. I want to have the Merlot from Best Buy in my hands first.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but is now showing all three colors (Black, Walnut, Merlot) available to order.  In store pickup is available at the stores in my area beginning on Saturday (April 30).  Express shipping would get one to me on Friday.

I have never ordered something so quickly in my life. I saw them up on Best Buy earlier as "Sold Out Online," but they must have actually just made it available just now.

I keep debating between waiting for my September Merlot or just go ahead and buy the Black one. I think the reason I'm hesitating is because I don't plan on getting another cover for it, since I'm already forking out so much for it.
