Hi, My name is***** will assist you. I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.This is usually caused by a glitch in the firmware and can be resolved by a forced reboot, then your kindle will work normally again. Slide or press and hold the power switch for 40 second, then release. Let me know if it comes on please.PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR USER GUIDE

Well, thank you Randy. I printed off the user manual, found the power slide/button and an orange light (ultimately) stayed on, showing that the charger bit is working......It will take some time, so I'm grateful for your help, Good night RJR
