Welcome, I am Cory.
What is the make/model of the Kindle?
Please press in and hold the power button/on off slider switch for 40 seconds.
This should make the Kindle reset.
Once 3 minutes has passed if it has not turned on, please try to turn it on normally and let me know if it is working.
Did you try to reset it?
Please plug it in and charge it for 15 minutes.
Once 15 minutes has passed, please keep it on the charger and press in and hold the rest button for 40 seconds.
Please let 15 more minutes pass while it charges.
Let me know if it works after this whole process.
yes, reset with the slider for 40 seconds after it charges 15 minutes
Unfortunately, it sounds like the Kindle needs to be replaced. Because you have had it 5 years, it is still not under warranty. Don't worry, if you buy a new one, you can transfer all of your books.
I wish I had better news.
