You can always schedule a time for a sync, even when you’re offline. Your device will automatically run the sync when it connects to the internet. You’ll know that the sync is complete when the icon stops spinning.
Here is an alternative way you can use to sync on your Fire tablet:

Troubleshooting Sync on Fire Tablet
You may have difficulties setting up sync on your device using the quick settings menu even after trying the abovementioned steps. Here are some quick fixes you can try to resolve this issue:
Check Wi-Fi Connection
If you’re having problems syncing your Fire tablet, it may be because your Wi-Fi connection is poor. Ensure you check these connections to make sure all updates are properly synced to the device.
Restart Your Fire Tablet
You can do this by long pressing the power button until a prompt appears on your screen. Tap on the shutdown button. Power on your device after about 30 seconds and check whether the issue is resolved by selecting the sync icon on the quick settings toolbar.
Disable Firewall and Antivirus
Antiviruses and Firewalls are known for blocking any app or process they can’t diagnose properly. You must either make this an exemption on the antivirus or disable this security feature to sync the device successfully.
Use Airplane Mode
Try turning on your Airplane Mode feature, wait for at least 30 seconds, then turn it off again. Afterward, try syncing all your downloads on your Fire tablet to see whether the issue is resolved.
Log out of Your Amazon Account
You can try logging out of your Amazon Fire tablet account and deregistering. Wait for two minutes before you try logging back in. Hopefully, the issue will be resolved.
Double-Check Your Amazon Account Settings
Your Fire tablet must be linked to your Amazon account to enable sync properly. Check your Amazon account settings to ensure everything is correctly configured.
Check Your Payment Settings
Your payment settings could be the culprit if you’re experiencing syncing issues. Here’s how to verify your account settings for payments:
- Log in to your Amazon account.
- Click on “Manage your content and devices.”
- Select “Preferences.”
- Choose “Digital Payment Setting.”
- Select “Edit Payment.”
- Confirm your payment status. If a transaction is unsuccessful, repeat the process to activate sync.
Check for Compatibility
Check whether your device supports the content you want to sync. You can do this by looking at the product detail page on your Amazon account. Check for your device on the list under the “See all the appearing devices” section.
Re-Purchase the Content
If your transaction wasn’t completed properly, you must purchase your desired content again. Don’t worry about a double charge, though. If the transaction didn’t complete the first time, it didn’t charge your credit card.
Do It Manually
If the system has failed to sync your purchases automatically, you can complete the sync manually. Follow the steps below to execute this task:
- Log in to your Amazon Account.
- Go to “Manage your content and devices.”
- Under the “Content” section, select the books, games, or videos you’d like to sync.
- Select “Deliver to device.”
- The files will be sent to your Fire tablet.
Be aware that the way you store the way you store your tablet can also affect syncing. This means that if you place your Fire tablet in a case, it’s likely to affect your wireless connection and ultimately disrupts the Sync function.
Why is my Fire tablet not showing all the books I’ve downloaded?
