Customer Question

My kindle just stopped working today. I get the green lite OK, but nothing comes on - as if I hadn't turned it on.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I think I can explain the situation, after a few questions, and perhaps instruct you how to fix the problem yourself.
How old is your Kindle please?

It might have a defective battery. Try turning it On, while it is connected to a charger, and see if it behaves differently or 'lasts longer' before turning Off.

Let me know, using the Reply To Expert function, and I will advise you. Thanks.
