Try resetting the Kindle. Make sure the Kindle is unplugged, and then press the power button and hold it for 30 seconds. Let me know if that doesn't fix it.

simitpatel :
OK. Plug the Kindle into power now. Does the charge light come on?

JACUSTOMER-i09keigz- :
yes! it's red now

simitpatel :
OK. Leave it plugged in for 5 minutes, and then hold the power switch for 30 seconds.

JACUSTOMER-i09keigz- :
alright, is this an issue with kindles? I have only had mine for 3 months.... ugh

simitpatel :
Just like all tablets, sometimes they will lock up, and need to be reset. I think your Kindle may have locked up, which also prevented it from charging properly.

JACUSTOMER-i09keigz- :
