Customer Question
Hello, my brothers kindel...

Hello, my brothers kindel was being charged and the charger made a weird noise and then I unplugged it and now his kindle charging plug in smells like its burnt out and it won't turn on how do you fix that

Technician's Assistant: When did you last charge your Kindle?

Yesterday

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a force reboot (pressing and holding the power button for a minute)?

Hm I've held it down but I'm not sure if I have for a minute I'll try it right now

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

What do I do if it didn't work?
