OK. Situation is as follows:
My KDXG was working yesterday.
Today I wanted to read - I turned it on and got the menu ON TOP of the "author image off screen".
Opening, closing, pressing "menu" only caused the situation to worsen, till my screen looks similar to the one here
Tried to hold the power switch for 30 seconds. Nada. Dito with pressing the Home after release the power switch. Nothing. Now it's also not responsive any more, with only the logo of Amazon clearly seen between smears on the screen, and I'm left with an irresistible urge of making it work by repeatedly hitting it with my hand.
It there any way to reset it and make it behave? I REALLY don't want to buy a new kindle now...
