I have a 2nd generaton kindle, I have not used it in a few months and now it is diplaying an empty battering with connector to charge.
Can this be revived once again?

It's unwise to leave a battery powered device unused for months without checking the battery status from time to time. The type of battery used in Kindles (LiPoly) is easily damaged by being fully discharged.

You could try leaving it charging for a few days to see if that makes a difference but there are companies that will replace batteries.

Thanks, I currently have it charging so maybe, just maybe it will shoot back to life.
Thank you again.

Thank you everyone for the entries. Mine is Kindle Touch. It was showing an empty battery and a charger images too for several months. I had almost given up until reading these entries. I plugged it into my computer and held the buttons for 30 seconds and continued doing this for 4 or 5 times. After leaving it to have a cup of tea I found it restarted again. 6 or 7 months later I revived it. Good luck to others.

I think giving it a cup of tea helped. Tea cures all!

Thanks for this idea, as my battery too is dead despite the recharge.
