Try using a different charger and cable to make sure the battery is being properly charged. Your penultimate option is to back up all your files and perform a factory reset. Go to Settings > Device > Reset to Factory Defaults > Reset. If nothing has worked, then it's time to contact Amazon.13 Jun 2016

How can I tell if my kindle is charging?


When your Kindle is charging, a lightning bolt appears on the battery icon at the top of the Home screen. The indicator light on the bottom edge of your device turns amber while the battery is charging and green when it is fully charged. If you don't see a light, your Kindle is not charging.

I am not able to turn on my kindle after serveral hours of being plugged in to charge


Your Kindle may not be actually charging even though it appears to be. Mine has been charging since previous reading session and currently is showing green indicator. Occasionally, I will have the Kindle connected to charge only to discover later that the charger has worked loose from the power strip. Hope you can get this problem solved so you can catch up on your reading.

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.

Not many buttons to control it but you might hold down the on button for a long time while the charger is connected.
