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)
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.
have you tried a new charger?? the contacts on your charger plug may be dirty....or the contacts on your kindle charging port may be dirty. Go to YOUTUBE and see how to clean a mini usb charging port, and or charging plug.
It could be the charger itself. Try taking the USB cable out of the charger and plug it into your computer, then plug in the Kindle. Your computer's USB port should be able to charge it. If it still doesn't charge, you might have a bigger issue with the tablet itself.
