Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
When you slide and hold the switch for a longer duration, does any light get lit on the kindle?
Have you tried this with kindle unplugged?
Does your kindle have a cover?
Remove it and then try turning it ON.
light comes on but the kindle won't.
Have you tried sliding and holding the switch for 20-30 seconds and then releasing it?
just tried and no change(30 sec)
the green lite comes on and then blinks and then goes off.
Is it charged?
Charge it for 5 minutes, then unplug and repeat the same procedure.
Let me know how it goes.
Just plugged it in. yellow lite. on
Keep it plugged in for five minutes, then unplug and try powering it up.
if this works does this mean i can't use my cover?
After that you can put your cover back. Sometimes this may happen due to cover.
and sometimes it is just a temporary software error that is cleared when kindle is reset.
ok it reset itself. hope it stays this way. thanks.
If the problem comes back again, you can reset it again.
You can press accept if satisfied.
