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.

I'm not an expert but I'd say it's been jarred in some way. Best thing is to contact Amazon customer service. sign on to amazon.com Below the search bar you'll see help on the right. Click on that, then device support. Fill out info and submit.
Personally I expect they will say send it in for repairs/replacement.

Here is the secret: Touch the book you want to delete and HOLD it down until a menu shows up. I will, towards the bottom, offer to "remove this book from your Kindle". Simple, eh?

There is something that you can do to start over...But let me be clear.. This Will Wipe Your Kindle Clean. It will UNREGISTER YOU with Amazon. You will be able to reinstall everything, just takes time.
To reset your password,
In the password field and tap o.k.
Your kindle is wiped clean, you now have to register with Amazon and Download the content again as desired from your Amazon archive..
Hope it helps..

What you call 'password' is the network key that has been set for your local network.

It is a problem with the capital and with special characters. The problem depends both on the network key used and on Kindle's.

First :ensure that you are using the right network key for this router. If a different computer works with this key on same router, then it is the right one.

Second: try the following. It is a solution from this site. The workaround will get rid of the capital problem with Kindle. I quote:

"Turn on kindly, bring up Wi-fi networks, tap in the network key from the label on the bottom of the router.
HERE is the trick. When you press the Aa (large capital/small capital AA key, to the right of the space bar, it actually does not go to uppercase when typing in key, you have to use the shift arrow, (bottom left hand corner of keypad).
Type in the key..., move to submit, it should connect fine".

Third: If that does not work, then the network key may include characters not supported by kindle. If possible access the router using a LAN cable, and set the router to a key made only by ciphers with no letter, and set the new key on kindle, PC etc. to connect.

If the 15 second reset does not work, I would suggest contacting amazon. They can connect to your device and see if there is something wrong with your actual kindle. If there is something wrong they are usually pretty good about replacing broken kindled :)

Welcome to Fixya

Try to reset the device by following the procedure below. If screen will not go back then there is definitely a problem with the LCD.

  1. Remove your Kindle 3 from the power source if it's connected.
  2. Slide the power switch to the right and hold it there.
  3. Count to 15 as if you're counting seconds, and remember to hold switch in-place for for 15 seconds.
  4. Release the switch now.
  5. At this point nothing will happen, but don't panic. That's normal. The screen will be blank for 30 seconds, and then the Kindle will restart.
Thank you for using Fixya!

This looks like a hardware defect covered by the 1-year limited warranty, assuming you did not mistreat your device like dropping it into a bathtub or running your car over it a few times.

Contact Amazon Kindle support:
  • In the United States: 1-866-321-8851
  • Outside the United States: 1-206-266-0927
In general, you will need to deliver your Device, postage paid, in either its original packaging or in equally protective packaging to the address specified by Customer Service. Before you deliver your Device for warranty service, it is your responsibility to backup any data, software, or other materials you may have stored or preserved on your Device. It is possible that such data, software, or other materials will be lost or reformatted during service.

Your Kindle will be repaired, replaced, or refunded.
