Question about Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G, FREE 3G Wi-Fi, 6 inch E Ink Display - Grey

1 Answer

My battery is dead and wont recharge. The orange light comes on briefly then goes out completely.

Not much I can do except wiggle connections, blow into connectors in case there is any dirt inside, repeatedly plug and unplug from my computer (where no displace is coming up, as it usually does, to say Kindle is connected) Have tried with a USB plug into a socket. The plug lights up but the Kindle does not. Kindle display when I went to charge first just said my battery was low. after first attempt to charge it now says "Critical Battery - Your battery is empty". Is the battery dead? and if it is, how do I retrieve my books? Liz Burnage

You have a blown capacitor. You will need to open it up, find the capacitor (the top will be convex instead of flat) and replace it. It is delicate work, so only do it if you are familiar with this kind of work. Otherwise, find a friend who is good at repairing sensitive electronics.

SOURCE: After two months with my Kindle, it says that

DEAR FRIEND, THE BATTERY IS TOO LOW THAT IS WHY IT WILL NOT COME ON. SO YOU WILL HAVE TO USE A UNIVERSAL CHARGER TO BOOST IT.

The pilot light will stay lit. Go to turn on heater and stays on briefly and goes out The heater wont stay lit.


If the fan comes on and blows out the pilot light then you need a new furnace because that's the sign of a crack in the heat exchanger. Need a little better description. Do the burners light then the fan come`s on and then it goes out completely?

I have a 99 camry the went dead and i tried to jump it the horn blows good the head lights comes on but when i turn the key it says nothing the dash lights doesnt come on its like its not getting any power


There could be several reasons for your problem:
  1. Check your connections for tightness and corrosion. A corroded battery cable/post will diminish the current going to the dead battery.
  2. Check jumper connections
  3. Dead battery; the worse off the battery is, the more time it will take to charge the battery sufficiently enough to start the car; a completely dead battery with bad cells will never recharge sufficiently enough to hold a charge and start the car on a regular basis
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

I got a Peg Perego Charger when I plug it into the battery no light comes on at all. Does that mean the battery is completely dead?


Not necessarily. There should be some type of light on the charger- green means charged, red or orange, not charged.

If no light comes on, it's the charger.

Battery wont charge green light and orange light come on but no charging happens, i have 3 other of the same batteries and they charge and work fine.


Is this an old battery? Batteries can fail and not charge after a lot of use. If it's new, run it all the way dead, then try to recharge .

Van wont start, battery is ok,lights come on ok.then you try to crank it over and everything goes dead? no lights no dash or dome lights all black. wait a few minutes lights come back on then turn key all...


The problem is a loose connection at your battery or the distribution block. This is normally the ground wire. Try tightening these connections and you should not have a problem. Or wiggle the wires.

Dell inspiron 1100 wont stay on


Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.
