Please plug in your Kindle for 5 minutes then hold down the power button for 45 seconds while it is plugged in until the Kindle reboots. It can take 2-3 minutes for the complete reboot process. Allow it to charge for 20 minutes now and see if it will charge

If that does not work then please let me know when you purchased the Kindle

Josh no change and the orange recharge light does not appear i presume that means is not charging, however it was virtually fully charged when the problem occurred. All it shows is a tree with a person sitting under it and the reboot bar under that stuck in the same position as last night

If the above steps did not work then there is a hardware issue with your Kindle.

Since you are outside of the warranty period (1 year warranty) Kindle will probably not issue a replacement but they normally give great discounts for a current Amazon customer to upgrade to the Kindle Fire.

In SOME cases they will grant the 1year warranty for a customer and give you a replacement. That is completely up to Amazon and is on a case to case basis that I have no control over.

Please call Amazon here ---> 1-***-***-****

Let them know that your Kindle has hardware issues and you need a replacement

OK thank you Josh, I presume I will lose all of the books I had on it and will have to purchase another.
Thanks again
Stephen
No, all books are stored on your Amazon account so they are not lost! The books will download onto your new Kindle.Please use the star rating at the top of this page to rate as 5 stars then press Submit
