My kindle fire HD did this, it was actually charged I just had to hold the power button until it finally booted up, almost 30 seconds. I found out this is a hard boot and have had to do it only a couple times in the past 2 years seems like its only when I have totally drained the battery.

The Kindle Fire HD, if completely discharged, may take several hours to begin to accept a charge again. Simply leave it plugged in long enough and the on-board system will sort it out.

My Kindle will not charge


Here's a possibility, I just plugged in my Kindle Paperwhite using the Kindle charger and USB cable. It wouldn't charge.
I kept it plugged in all afternoon and it accepted no charge although it showed the little lightning bolt on the icon suggesting it was charging.

I unplugged the charger (it has two prongs) and reversed it so
the logo was on top and, Lo and Behold it charged. It could be the plug is not omniidirectional (i.e. it is polarized)

Kindle fire will not charge-got a new charger and it still will not charge- does it need anew battery and how do I do that?


The Kindle touch and the Kindle FIre are great devices for your reading needs. However, there are times when it becomes unresponsive and freezes on you. Amazon says it is because the battery isn't charged properly or does not have enough power on it. It is advisable to charge your battery first before trying to reset the Kindle touch/Fire. If theKindle still has issues, then try the steps below on how to reset your Kindle touch/fire. Please note that you may lose your data during the reset process, make sure you have made a backup of your files before proceding.
  • Hard and soft reset
    Make sure the Kindle is turned ON.
  • Press the Power button for 20-30 seconds until it turns OFF.
  • Wait for it to reboot, if it doesn't press the power button to turn it ON.
  • Your kindle should be back to a responsive state.
  • this might help you.

KINDLE WON'T CHARGE


Are you sure your charger is working? Try charging another device with it, or try using a different charger. If you're sure the charger is OK (and plugged in!), try leaving the charger plugged in to your Kindle for a good long while, like 12 hours. If it still doesn't charge, or if the charge wears down after a short time, you might well have a bad battery. Unfortunately, later-model Kindles don't have user-replaceable batteries, and having it done professionally is not cheap. If it's still under warranty, make sure to have it fixed before the warranty expires.

Why wont my kindle hd charge?


It could be the charger itself. Try taking the USB cable out of the charger and plug it into your computer, then plug in the Kindle. Your computer's USB port should be able to charge it. If it still doesn't charge, you might have a bigger issue with the tablet itself.

My kindle is not charging


Is the device new or still under warranty? Is return to the store (RMA--"Return Merchandise Authorization"--through an online vendor) still possible? Extended warranty?

Is the charger (and outlet) OK? If you may attempt to use USB current from your PC/Laptop/etc., is that port workable and powered? Have you attempted an alternate method of charging? Is syncing then possible?

Chargers are not invulnerable--rarely, they sometimes overheat and die. After all, they're fabricated PRC items too--thus, even they may prove defective. (They're far less complex than a Kindle or phone, though--defective chargers thus prove quite rare.)

Chargers can't last indefinitely or through overly heavy use, either. (Chargers do tend to last longer than devices--failure proves quite rare!) Is the charger unusually hot after plug-in? (Such failure could prove a great danger to electronic devices. Very rarely, even fire or sparking is possible.) Is charger connection at the wall OK? (Is the outlet overloaded?)

Is it a "block" charger?: These may be replaced easily. Just get the connector and the Volts correct--with sufficient amperage (current). You don't need even to obtain the same brand and model as OEM--that which came originally with your charger. Online, amazon, Radio Shack, etc. may prove very helpful for such purposes.

Does the connector have sufficiently good contact through your Kindle's circuitry to its batteries? (Is the connection overly loose? Often, this occurs over time.)

Are you certain that the charging cable is OK? Does the connector in the Kindle need "doctoring" with a small tool, somehow? If the batteries are dead, it's likely possible to replace them.

It's possible that the device simply is dead (shorted-out)--power surge or fluctuation certainly are possible and likely culprits.

An extremely remote possibility is that the CPU or other key chipset is dead--even those prove useful for limited numbers of cycles. (Failure then implies quite extreme usage! Probably not!) It's not immortal!

Kindle wont charge


Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries. Try another port on the computer, if there is one. If you're going through a USB hub, remove it and connect the Kindle directly to the computer. If you have access to an AC-USB charger (one that plugs into a wall outlet instead of a computer), try using that.

If you are not able to power the Kindle up, try the following:

1. Plug the Kindle into an alternate charger, if you do not own a second charger go down to Staples or Radio Shack and buy one
2. Plug in the Kindle to the new charger for 12 hours. If the Kindle attempts to power up hold the power button down until the Kindle powers down

4. The Kindle should be powering up
5. If the Kindle is not powering up, contact Amazon for a replacement.
