Unhappy Kindle Unresponsive


My Kindle KT3 White does not work anymore. I don't know what exactly I did wrong. The LED works like normal but the Screen does nothing.

Thanks guys.

1. Hold in the power button for at least a minute and see if that does anything.
2. If nothing happens, leave it plugged into a wall charger for 24h, and then repeat step 1.
3. If steps 1 and 2 both do nothing, then it's probably either a dead battery or some other hardware fault.

Will do

Thanks for your quick answer. I really appreciate that . My guess is it's either the display or, the Kindle is in some kind of recovery mode. Hopefully just my second guess I will reply tomorrow .

That almost certainly means that the battery has died. You could replace it, but is it worth the effort to do so rather than get a more modern reader? Your choice.

Unhappy Ur right

It's a pitty because i had the reader for only 6 Months now. .I was more then happy with all its features and with its price. I find it interesting that the battery died, because i did not used it in a while. Maybe i should have charged it sometimes...

How long did you leave it without charging it?

Also note: he really means 24hrs on a WALL charger, not charging through your computer. There is apparently a difference.

that symbol means the battery is detected but has I insufficient charge to boot up.
charge it overnight with a WALL charger, as others have said, then report back

Smile Wall charger

Thanks im well aware of the difference between these charging methods. It would be crazy to run the computer overnight just for charging this thing

After 48 Hours charging with a restart after 24 hours. It's working so far again. Battery is "full" says the kindle. I will look into that a bit more. Thanks for the help guys <3
