Does it need a new battery or is the USB connecter damaged?
What does the first post in this thread say about charging the battery, right at the top in bold red text?
The K3 identifies as "SE Blank Ringo" when it is USB Downloader mode. The USB drive is not exported. Read about k3flasher, linked from the first post. The power LED color cannot be trusted to indicate battery charging status on a bricked kindle.
