Is the Kindle still turning on? Or is it now completely flat?

And are you charging from a wall socket or from the computers USB port?

Please let me know

Thank you

I seem not to be getting through with my response to your questions. When we press the start button, the green light comes on briefly, and then goes out leaving the dead battery on the screen. We charge through the computer,s UBS port.

Thanks Tony,

This was the only message I received, possibly there was an issue with your last message.

Can you charge the Kindle via the wall power socket please, as your computer may not be providing enough power over the USB port.

Tell me please if it then charges.

Thank you
