Hello! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.
I'm sorry about the issue. Can you please try this: If you have any cover on the kindle, please remove it for now. Then press & hold the power on/off button on the kindle for about 45 seconds, then turn it back on and check. If needed, do you have another charging cable to try?
Please type at the small box below, then click on the Reply button at the bottom in order to chat with me. Thank you.
I have tried the white light returns briefly. the status of the charge is & was 3 quarters full as previously. No I do not have a futher cable.
I'm sorry. This looks like a hardware issue. How old is your kindle paperwhite.
About 12 months. However I notice that when pressing the on off button the light shines ,then flashes twice & goes out. Is this significant
Also, while charging, press & hold the power on/off button for about half a minute, and check.
No, the systemboard is bad.
