One last thing i need to know, when you connect the charger do you get a charging light on?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
green light comes on
Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago.
Green light means the charger is good and its charging the battery however the battery has been out of life which need a replacement and then you can reuse the kindle.Battery life of a kindle/Tablet or smart phones they lasts up to 3 years max and you need to get it replaced.

how or where do I get batteries replaced
Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago.
you can vist any cell phone repair shop they will have the spare battery and it can be replaced in no time.This is not a user replaceable battery so you would need to carry the Kindle to the repair shop to get it replaced.The battery is hard soldered which need to be de soldered to replace it with a new one.
