Over the last month or so my Kindle 1 has stopped searching.
If I bring up the search box and type something in nothing happens. it doesn't find even the most common words and doesn't bring up any results at all. The search line just blanks out and sits there.

I have about 40 pages of stuff so its not that my Kindle is empty (and even then it used to search the web and the store

has anyone else had this happen?

I had this happen on my K1 not too long ago.  I think that somehow my index files were deleted.  (I certainly hadn't been deleting random files off my Kindle or anything.  I always delete files from the Kindle itself, not the computer.)  One day I guess it must have just decided to re-index, because my battery ran out totally unexpectedly (I seldom let it get below half charge, and I had just charged it a day or two before), and my search was back!  I really wish I knew what made it do that so I could tell you.  I was going to suggest a reboot, but I see you already tried that. :)
