Check if your battery has any voltage.
Try a different charger or try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails too, you have a logic board issue. AmazonMy kindle got wet by a big wave in the ocean won't - 2_bing.gif should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it up and clean any corrosion you may find inside. If that fails you need a new logic board. 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.

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.

Kindle became wet, placed in rice but still will not turn on.


There are no repair facilities for Kindles,
(There are some companies in the UK who will replace a screen on an eReader.)

If the rice trick has not helped then I guess it's time to look at the insurance or just throw it.

The kindle won't turn on


It is possible that your Kindle Fire's battery has died. If you noticed the battery life diminishing before it wouldn't turn on at all this may be the case. Here is a site that has replacement batteries for the Kindle Fire:

Kindle is jammed on wi fi connection how do i get out of this please


Firstly, make sure that your kindle is fully charged. Then hold the power switch for 7 seconds. After the light blinks three times, release it. If this does not unfreeze your kindle, hold the power switch for 15 seconds. This should restart your kindle. If neither of these solutions work try contacting amazon kindle support, as they can remotely connec tto your kindle and see what is wrong.

I have the kindle 3.0.2, I have wifi but i dont have 3g i will like to know how i get get 3g on my kindle ?


First of all there are two types of kindle, the kindle 3g + WIFI and the Kindle WIFI. If you bought the kindle WIFI you will be unable to connect to a 3g network. If you bought a 3g model you can access 3g internet by pressing the 'menu' button and then using the 5-way to navigate to 'turn on wireless'. Once wireless is on you can access your browser by clicking menu, scrolling to experimental and then selecting Web Browser

Kindle locked up and can't navigate or turn off.


What can I do about a frozen Kindle?Plug your Kindle into an outlet, wait one to three minutes, and attempt to navigate. If necessary, unplug the Kindle and reset by moving and holding the power switch for 15 seconds before releasing it. If your Kindle is still unresponsive I would suggest contacting amazon customer support. They can access your kindle remotely and if something is wrong, give you a replacement.
