Connect the Kindle in to the charger for about 5 minutes. Then, keeping the Kindle plugged in to the charger, slide (or push) and hold the switch for up to one minute or until you see the Kindle screen flicker, whichever is sooner. Then, wait for about 3 minutes so that the Kindle can reboot. Let me know result via the REPLY TO EXPERT button.Andy
Within 5 seconds, the screen went blank. Can still see "shadow" of page that was shown. No other response following instructions.
