Why Is My Kindle Paperwhite Screen Blank

The most common reason is that the battery has drained completely. If this is the case, simply connect your Kindle to a power source using the included USB cable and allow it to charge for at least 30 minutes. Otherwise, you may have to do a hard reset.

If your Kindle is still not powering on after being connected to a power source, there are a few other potential causes you can check.

First, make sure that the power button is firmly pressed and held for at least 7 seconds. If the power button feels stuck or unresponsive, try resetting your Kindle by pressing and holding the power button for 40 seconds.
