Wrong time and date on a Kindle Fire HD?

Here's how to cure it:

  • Press and hold the power button for a full 20 seconds
  • Release the power button
  • Switch back on
When it restarts it will get the correct time from Amazon. You won't lose any of your downloaded books.

Thank you - this worked perfectly and also in doing it my daughters games worked again on the Kindle. Much more helpful than the Amazon website!

If it didn't work for you, the chances are you didn't hold the power button for quite long enough. The aim is to to a 'Power Reset'. Try holding the button for 30 seconds.

didn't work, tried for 20 & 30 seconds & it didn't change. What is so wrong with being able to manually set the time, seriously??
