This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds (40 is too short).
Release, then connect the charger and wait 15 minutes then repeat again try to turn on the Kindle and charge it
Let me know the results please
