I have tried charging in the wall socket and am now trying on the computer and so far nothing. I have held down the button the green light comes on and then cuts out. Have had my kindle for 2 yrs I think. This is the second one the first one I gave to my husband which is older and is still working.
I have tried what you asked and the green light doesnt stay on longer than 5 seconds before it flickers and stops. It just does not open the Kindle.
