this is an older Kindle, and has NO buttons along the edge, only the power button (depression) and volume (depressions) on the back. I have a newer one which has power button and vol on the edge.

Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems.

The problem you're having is often due to the software in the Kindle locking up and it needing to be rebooted. To do this, simply press and hold the power button on the Kindle for 40 FULL seconds, then release and wait a full minute for it to reboot (do no press anything else within that minute).

If this does not cure the issue, try that reset up to THREE TIMES and wait the full minute to see if it reboots.

If you're still running into problems, then try plugging the Kindle into the charger for 15 minutes, then eject it and try the reboot a couple of more times.

If the device still does not work beyond that, then please reply back with the Model of the Kindle and also the AGE of the unit- and we can proceed.

I am broke and can barely afford this $31, so another $20 to talk is out of the question. I am retired on a minimal retirement income.
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 22 days ago

I'm not sending that offer- the website is. Just ignore it.

Tried everything, nothing works, And it does not even beep any more... Help.It is older, and I think it is a Fire, but has no info on it. Any more ideas?? Thanks
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 22 days ago

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
