Help! How to factory reset a kindle 3

8 replies
Found 17th May 2011
Sold a Kindle 3, and I can't find how to do a factory reset online.

Tried a hard reset (hold power button for 15 seconds) but that leaves user data on it.

I can see methods for older kindle models online but these don't seem to work!

Strange it needed to be done twice in a row. Maybe this thread will live on in the internet and help someone else.
