It sounds like you simply need a new battery. Here is a site that sells replacement batteries for the Amazon Kindle 1:

Try different chargers, your yellow charging indicator should come on even if the battery is broken. It could be a broken charging port/ logic board issue as well. If you still think it may be the battery and If you've explored all options with software settings and If you're outof warranty, you can try to open the kindle and replace the battery. There is a Kindle Repair Guide that shows you how to take it apat. There are services that can do it for you. Kindle Repair.

The battery is most probably undercharged or dead, before you buy a new one, make sure that it is the battery by testing with another one in a store.

  2. Connect it to one of three power sources:

Wall outlet

Computer

How do I turn it on using battery only


This most likely is a dead battery issue. It will show as if it is full when plugged in but will not hold a charge.

My CyberPad iview's battery is completely dead. How do I recharge it? Blue light is not lit when it's plugged in and there is no lightening bolt appearing.


Is the charger ok?(silly me). Unless the battery is functionally dead, it should work. Sometime plugging into another wall outlet may help.

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.

How do I charge the iPad battery.


USB hubs typically don't generate the 10 watts necessary to charge an iPad when it's connected to your computer. This basically means you can't use your laptop to recharge your iPad.

Apple recommends finding an AC outlet and using 10-watt power adapter that came with your iPad.

My kindle has frozen


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.
