I cannot get my Kindle Fiire to start charging when I plug

Customer Question

I cannot get my Kindle Fiire to start charging when I plug it in. I only get about three hours reading time on a charge. I have 2 cords/chargers and neither of them work right. Same goes for the replacement Kindle new unit I bought with extended battery life. The charge light will not stay on.

Try resetting the firmware by pressing and holding the power button for 20 seconds. This should clear up any charging software issues. In regards ***** ***** to get more reading time (if it's not a software issue), try inverse text. It's what I use. The background will be black and the letters, white. This uses less power.
