This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the Kindle and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the Kindle.
Let me know the results please
ok, but this fault stopped it being charged, so nothing happened overnight, but it should now be charging.
Is will be ok now, just let it have a few hours to complete the charge Susan.
If you have any continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Leave it for 2 hours and it will then be fully charges Susan.
Ok, disconnect the charger, hold the power button for 60 seconds release, turn it on and tell me what the battery says as charge please.
ok, now connect the battery, does it show it as charging?
Can you try a different power socket to try to charge it please?
since our initial procedure and waiting 2 hours, did the battery increase charge at all?
that is the next step
Which model Kindle is it?
ok, go to Go Menu/Settings/Menu/Reset to factory defaults
Once done, set it up again and tell me if it then charges please.
If it will not take a chard it would mean the battery or charging port has faulted.
How did it go?
Ok, it will be. How old is the Kindle?
ok, the warranty will have expired, you will need to purchase a replacement sorry, though 6 years use is very good for these.
