Default My kindle randomly shuts off

My kindle for some reason just randomly shuts off if its not plugged in. If anyone could help that would be awesome about to call amazon and send it back for a replacement.

No its a big problem. Mine does it when i have a full battery and have nothing running. But my wife's don't do it. We both have go launcher and use the same apps on a regular basis.

I have the same problem! My Kindle shuts down for no reason. When I try to power it up again, it shows the shimmering kindle logo shows, the screen flashes as though it is about to boot up but is simple switches off again.

The only way I can get it to boot is to plug it in to a power charger. When it finally boots, the battery is often 50 - 60% charged?

This often occurs when unlocking the screen.

Any suggestions as to why this happens, or what I can do to fix it would be most welcome

Cheers
Aquitaine.

What roms are you using? Do you have rooted devices? Did you tried monitor your apps for apps that might eat up your RAM?

If you have full battery problem might be in RAM and the shutting of is basically android mechanism for "fixing" the issue with full RAM. Look into your apps and see if you have any app that might be causing this. If there is anything suspicious try uninstalling the app and see if the reboot comes back.

This happened to my daughters Kindle as well without any customizing done to it. It was a purely stock amazon Kindle. I called customer service and they sent me a new one within 2 days. I believe that this issue is a hardware issue as my oldest daughter has no problems with hers.

I have stock rom and have the device (KFHD 7) rooted. I didn t monitor app by app RAM consumption. The only thing I do was uninstalling apps installed for me, but nothing changes. There is a simple way to check RAM consumption?

Thank you!

I'm getting the same problem.

Could I remove the root and look to get it replaced?
