My Kindle will not wake up when I slide and release my button to wake it up. I hve had this Kindle for several years. Is it time to purchase a new one. Arthur


Hello
If that did not work, let's try to force a reboot. If you have a leather cover on it, remove it. The battery charging circuits are controlled by the software as well. If the software isn't allowing the Kindle to accept a proper charge, it may cause the Kindle to malfunction too. Plug the Kindle into the charger for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes and while still plugged in, slide or press and hold the switch for one minute. Make sure you don't disconnect the power during this entire process. Allow 3 minutes afterward for the Kindle to reboot. If this doesn't correct the problem, let me know the approximate purchase date of your Kindle.

Kindle will not shut off-goes to shut off or cancel but wont move. doesnt charge well-doesnt always hold charge


Patricia, Using the power switch, you can forcibly reset your Kindle device. This reset will shut down the Kindle without accessing the shutdown command from within the Kindle's operating system, a particularly useful tool when dealing with a frozen Kindle. To initiate a hard shutdown, Kindle disconnect from its charger, slide and hold the power switch for about 20 seconds. This will force the Kindle to shut down, now it can be restarted normally.
Check links below for charging problems.

Her is a possible solution:

Kindle light is orange when I charge but even after of hours of charging continuous efforts to turn on Kindle, it won't turn on.


Try to slide and hold the on switch until after the power light blinks three times (should happen after a little more than 5 seconds). Release the switch after the blinks and the Kindle should start up.

This is only necessary if the Kindle was switched off by the same method before, or if the battery was completely drained. A short nudge of the power switch merely puts it in and out of a power-saving sleep mode, the prolonged hold really cuts / reinstates power.

My kindle does not to turn on when i slide the power switch


Make sure that the kindle is fully charged. Plug your kindle into the wall charger, a yellow light will light up. When the yellow light turns green, your kindle is fully charged. Then try turning on your device. If the device still does not turn on, hold the power switch for 15 seconds, this will reboot the device.
