I've tried a wall-charger and two different PCs. The yellow LED is lit.
I can charge my other kindle with the same cable.
Still, I'll try a different USB cable once I'm at home and the Kindle hasn't charged but (yes, this sounds like "the glass is half empty") I don't believe it will make a difference.
Still thanks for your advice.
