It sounds like either your micro usb on your tablet is either broke or bent to where it does not make a proper connection. Look at the plug in area. If the center tab is not in the center....or looks like it is bent down. Take a thin plastic utensil and gently bend it until it is centered again.
This is a common problem with micro usb. Check out a youtube video first before attempting if thats the issue.
Also...be sure your using the proper voltage and amperage plugin for that tablet.

My kindle paperwhite does not appear to be charging, do I need to replace the battery


I don't think the paperwhite has a user replaceable battery. I would try a different charger first.

My Kindle will not charge


Here's a possibility, I just plugged in my Kindle Paperwhite using the Kindle charger and USB cable. It wouldn't charge.
I kept it plugged in all afternoon and it accepted no charge although it showed the little lightning bolt on the icon suggesting it was charging.

I unplugged the charger (it has two prongs) and reversed it so
the logo was on top and, Lo and Behold it charged. It could be the plug is not omniidirectional (i.e. it is polarized)

My kindle fire does not charge.


If you are truing to charge with a USB post then switch to a wall wart. There is often not enough voltage to charge from USB.

My kindle will not charge?


The Kindle Fire HD, if completely discharged, may take several hours to begin to accept a charge again. Simply leave it plugged in long enough and the on-board system will sort it out.

KINDLE WON'T CHARGE


Are you sure your charger is working? Try charging another device with it, or try using a different charger. If you're sure the charger is OK (and plugged in!), try leaving the charger plugged in to your Kindle for a good long while, like 12 hours. If it still doesn't charge, or if the charge wears down after a short time, you might well have a bad battery. Unfortunately, later-model Kindles don't have user-replaceable batteries, and having it done professionally is not cheap. If it's still under warranty, make sure to have it fixed before the warranty expires.

Why will my Kindle Fire not charge


This could be any number of issues; are you charging this on a car charger or wall charger? Have you checked to make sure your charge port isn't damaged? Does it connect correctly via USB to a computer? Have you tried the charger on different outlets? Has the Kindle Fire been dropped or damaged in anyway?

My kindle will not charge


Use a different charger - se if any of the ones you have for your phones are Micro USB - they will charge it fine.

If not get a usb/micro usb cable or micro usb charger from most shops in the high street for 4 or 5 pounds.

If using the usb jack on a pc or laptop swap to a different usb jack on the pc or laptop

Kindle will not charge from out let or computer


Please clarify: what charger did you use to connect to an outlet? The Kindle 3 comes with an USB cable to charge from a PC or Mac computer and no charger outside for many countries outside the US (for other countries an external charger is available from Amazon as optional accessory). Use of a different charger (e.g. mobile phone charger with USB connector) is not supported, not recommended and may fry your Kindle if a wrong voltage is hooked to it.

Things you can try:
  1. Use a different outlet to charge the Kindle.
  2. If you use the supplied USB cable to connect to a PC, make sure its firmly seated on both ends. Connect to a powered USB port directly on your computer. Some external USB hubs do not come with a separate power supply (external power supply is mandatory for an USB 2.0 hub, some cheap models are sold without one anyway) and are not suited to charge anything. Just to make sure, disconnect any other USB device except mouse / keyboard to check if the USB port in use is not burdened by too much drain.
  3. The Kindle power LED should glow amber while charging and green if the device is fully charged.
  4. Give the Kindle a reset pressing Home --> Menu --> Settings --> Menu and select "Restart." If the charge light is on but the device is still not charging, contact Amazon customer service.
  5. If the charge light does not light, the AC adapter or cable needs to be replaced.
  6. Contact Amazon customer support for any warranty issues.

Kindle will not take a charge


Does the little yellow charging light come on when you connect it? If not try a different charger. If that fails too, you may have a logic board issue. Amazon should give you a greplacement. If you're out warranty. Try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails, you need a new logic board, and you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.
