Kindle For Mac Crashing

Posted on  by admin

Release the Power and Volume down buttons once Kindle Fire is completely powered OFF. After Kindle Fire is completely powered off, wait for 10 more seconds. Next, Power ON your Kindle Fire tablet by Pressing and holding the Power button. The steps to Soft Reset Kindle HD and HDX (First to Fourth Generation) devices is a bit different. It seems to be working OK with Kindle for Mac 1.30.0 (59055), apart from the issue of it crashing on quit, which I can live with. Similar situation here, but with chmod -x, I can download in the old format but if I try to open the book then Kindle says 'preparing your book' and then it crashes.

E-Books Disappearing or Not Working

Kindle For Mac Crashing
  1. But some users recently started facing issues with the app, and that is known as Amazon Kindle App crashing issue. It becomes so irritating that people blame on the mobile operating system, but the actual problem found on the App itself.
  2. E-Books Disappearing or Not Working. There are two reported forms of non-working.
  3. I am new to Mac Rumors. I just bought the Mac Mini M1. I have used the Kindle app and share screen when I teach students. Found out Kindle won't work. I've read your thread above. For what it's worth, from an absolute amateur, though it doesn't feel the same at all, my 11 year old daughter suggested I use Kindle Cloud Reader.

There are two reported forms of non-working e-books:

  • E-books not working after a reboot
  • E-books not working in offline mode

Either way, e-books that refuse to load is an extremely frustrating issue to face, especially when trying to relax with a good book. Issues with disappearing or non-working e-books can sometimes be caused by the Google Play Store:

  1. Go to the Play Store app.
  2. Go to the Kindle app page.
  3. Select Uninstall.
  4. Tap menu in the top left (vertical lines).
  5. Select Settings.
  6. Select Auto-Update Apps.
  7. Select Do Not Auto-Update Apps.

If Google Play Store is not installed, try this:

  1. Connect online.
  2. Downward swipe from top of screen to get to Quick Settings.
  3. Select Sync.
  4. Hold the Power button for 40 seconds to restart.

If your e-books still don’t appear:

  1. Select Settings.
  2. Select Apps & Games.
  3. Select Manage All Applications.
  4. Select Force Stop.
  5. Select Clear Cache.

Kindle Fire Stuck on Logo

If your Kindle Fire is stuck on the logo screen:

  1. Charge your Kindle Fire for at least 15 minutes; don’t unplug.
  2. Hold the Power button for 40 seconds to restart.
  3. Plug the Kindle Fire into a computer to get past logo screen.

If the Kindle Fire is still stuck on the logo screen, go into Recovery Mode:

  1. Power off device.
  2. Hold Power and Volume Down buttons after turning on.
  3. Highlight the Reboot System Now option using Volume Up and Down.
  4. Select the Reboot System Now option with the Power button.

  • Close some apps.
  • Replace the adapter.

Otherwise, try removing an app (instead of just closing it):

  1. Select Settings.
