Hello! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.This can be caused by the battery circuits. Sometimes they can lock up and you think the Kindle is charging, but it isn't. Lets reset them and try to charge the Kindle. If you have already performed one or more of these steps, please do so again in this exact order. 1. Connect the charger.2. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds3. If the battery has any charge the Kindle should power on and function normally. If it doesn't...4. Leave the Kindle on the charger for 10 minutes, then press and hold the power button again until the device powers on, then release the button. Try this with another charger as well to make sure the charger isn't the issue.5. Your Kindle should be back to normal. It will need to charge longer to have a full battery.6. If none of this works, reply to this message with the approximate purchase date of the Kindle. If it does work, please rate positively to close the case.
If you need more help please reply. If not rate positively and have a great day!
