that has not worked and tried that when it first happened and have tried again now

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
okay, that sounds like an issue with the charging cord and adapter. The kindle thinks that it is connected to a computer. Do you have another charge cord that you can try?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
okay, good. Try the other cable and see if it is resolved.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no nothing happened and I have tried 2 different ones. I have put the orignal plug back in and light is on now to tell me its charging

Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
okay, the charge port may need cleaning. It sounds like after you plugged and unplugged a few times that it started working properly. The contacts on the charge port can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a small brush. When you have a chance try cleaning those with the kindle powered off. You can get a good amount of alcohol in the port when cleaning, then blow it dry . Then wait about 15 minutes to power back on. The remaining alcohol will dissipate.
