I have 4 blocked books in public domain. I cannot unpublish or delete it as the button is unclickable. Will these book affect my kdp account in any way? I have live public domain ebooks too.

Thanks

What do you mean by public domain?
Books you have published that you wrote? Or, books that are in the public domain that you published?

You cannot remove them. They will stay there forever, a constant reminder of your punishment for sinning against KDP. Will they affect your account? Not directly, but you should always keep in mind that further transgressions might result in full suspension. When you involve in an area that's now as gray as PD now is in KDP, you always have to make sure you don't overstep a blurred and constantly shifting line.

Thank you for your advice, I will keep an eye on that. I dont have any more books to be uploaded or published and except those 4 blocked books , all other books are Live. So I should not worry about termination or suspension right ?

That depends on if you wrote the books or snatched them. The 'bots' may not have caught up with you.

Make sure that your other books are in full compliance and don't violate any parts of the TOS. That requires you to READ the TOS and then ensure your books are up to par, just like the rest of us.
