You most likely need a new screen. If you're out warranty, 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.

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.

I charged my kindle, but can't get it to turn on


According to Love My Kindle Fire, nearly every Kindle owner will, at some point, need to learn how to "reset" their machine.
"When I hear (or read) these words from those who are experiencing a problem with their Kindle Fire it usually ends with something like, "turn on", "charge", or "work".

If suddenly your Kindle Fire won't work, then its most likely locked up. However, sometimes when it locks up, you can't tell because the screen goes dark (either gray or black). It just looks like it's off when in fact it is already one. cause the screen goes dark, either gray or black. It just looks like it's off when in fact your Kindle Fire is on but is stuck. When an electronic device locks up or freezes usually resetting it fixes the problem. Resetting your Kindle Fire is actually really easy, just hold down the power button for at least 20 seconds. .If your Kindle Fire won't turn on it's possible the battery went dead (if it was left "on" too long).
Plug in the power charger and wait about 15 minutes to make sure it gets enough charge, and then try turning it on again.
If it still won't turn on, try to reset the Kindle Fire again to be sure it's powered off.
If it still won't work, try someone else's charger, in case yours died.

My kindle froze in middle of book i held the on switch for 15 seconds and page went blank it is fully charged now will not turn on


On my own kindle holding the power switch for that long initiates a full reboot. The only two things I can suggest are to try plugging the device into a usb cable to your computer, try turning it on again and see if you can get a connection to the computer. If it connects to the computer, but nothing is on the screen, then it is likely a screen issue. If it doesn't connect to your computer, then it is something you would have to contact amazon about. If its a screen issue, hopefully its under warranty. If it is outside warranty, but you bought it on your credit card, then contact your credit card company, many of them automatically extend the warranty for any item you purchase on the card.

Try to hold the slide key for 15 sec. It will reboot your kindle. If black patch is not gone even after that, It's a hw issue. Screen might require to be changed. If it's in warranty Amazon will do it free. That's what i have heard.

On my Kindle 3 the screen presentation seems dull and lifless and does not encourage reading. I thought it would be closer to a written page in terms of being much less grey and more white.The screen is...


Please compare your display to this one:

If your display looks worse, you should contact Amazon Kindle support. This is the current state-of-the-art for E-Ink displays. In comparison, liquid crystal displays (LCD) have a slightly better contrast, but cannot show shades of gray at all, they need electricity all the time, and become much harder to read in brighter environments.

Make sure you have enough light while reading, I find it more comforting to the eyes.

My kindle wi-fi is not working. I went to turn it on and the light came on but stayed at the screen saver screen.


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.
