Answer to "My Kindle is charged, but will not turn "on"?"Screen also stopped working after plugging in the charger one day. Didn't know anything about this issue at the time, so I made the mistake of letting it fully charge in this state. I ended up having to let the Kindle discharge on its own and taking a whole 2 months to do so. I kept holding down the power button maybe 4 times to make sure it was totally discharged. After I made sure no power was present I plugged in the charger then the battery charging indicator came on. After 10-15 minutes the Kendle powered up fully functioning. Thanks to all that suggested this!!
