Kindle plugged in to charge up, but not turned green after many hours - Ryo - 12 Sep 2017 10:16 AM

Nor is it possible to tell if battery's charged at all (tho I can see and read my home page etc).  Basic and fairly elderly kindle (4+ years).  Help pls!

When this happened to my first Kindle, I'm afraid I ended up having to buy a new one. I think at the very least it means your battery is finished but I'm not sure how easy it is to get it replaced.

It did actually come back on later cecilia_writer, when I unplugged it and then plugged it back in again, so there's hope for others in this situation.  But thanks for adding to the info pool!
