Thanks for your prompt reply, I have just tried what you have suggested but it has made no difference...the Kindle still doesn't power up :(

Your welcome, I am glad to help. try this next please. Connect the kindle to the charger, then charge for 15 minutes. Then while it is still connected to the charger hold the power switch for 45 seconds. Let me know if this still does not work and I will get you the info for returning the kindle for repair or replacement.

Hi again, I have tried charging it as you suggested then holding the power switch, but the it still doesn't want to power up, if it is sent for repair, what will happen to the books I already have on the Kindle? will they be lost?

no, you will not lose anything. You can also read the books from another device or computer while you are getting the other kindle repaired or replaced with the Kindle app which is available for most major smartphones, tablets and computers. That means with your free Kindle reading apps, you can buy a Kindle book once, and read it on any device with the Kindle app installed.

And if it's older than a year? still the same number? & possible charges?

Yes, use that same number, if the cost to repair is too much then Amazon will recommend and sell you a refurbished kindle which is a good value.
