Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
If it is 4 years old, probably the battery in it no longer holds a charge, or no longer delivers enough power for very long - these are the common symptoms of a rechargeable battery in an electronic device having started to fail.

Batteries can be replaced - but some models have batteries that are much easier replaced than others (if you were intending to do the work yourself.) If you wish to have the battery replacement done for you as a service, that's definitely feasible provided you find the fee charges acceptable.

Let me know which of those two approaches (self-repair, or repair-servicing done for you) you wish to know about, and if you want to self-repair the Kindle, please identify the model exactly.
