Faulty app is also a possible reason, so check whether you have recent downloaded apps, and try deleting them to see whether the problem could fixed.
Keeping your Kindle’s software up to date may reduce instances of a frozen screen. Go amazon.com/kindle software updates to see what the latest version is called and check your kindles’ version in your device’s “Settings” menu, update it if necessary.

Restarting your device involves turning it off completely and then turning it back on again.
