Thanks for contacting I am Cris.

Please try to force start your Kindle by doing the following:

1. If you have it connected to the charger currently remove for 30 seconds.

2. If you also have a case on the device please remove it.

3. Connect your Kindle to the charger for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes.

4. Leave on the charger press and hold the power button/switch for up to 1 minute or until the screen flickers which ever is shorter.

5. Then allow about 1-2 minutes for the software to load up.

Let me know if you have any further questions. Please take the time to rate my service and submit at the top.

You obviously did not read my entire question. The charge indicator light does not stay on for more than 30 seconds max. How can I charge it for 5 mins? I have tried leaving the power button on (taped) and plugged in and it shuts off. I have tried holding the power button for 30-45 secs and then waiting and nothing (both unplugged and plugged in). I have held the power switch on for 30-45 secs and then held down the home button for 30-45 secs to no avail (both unplugged and plugged in). I have tried multiple power cords and wall chargers to no avail. I have tried plugging into multiple computers to no avail. I have tried mixing all of this up to no avail. If I am going to be charged $28 please atleast take the time to read the full question and information provided.
