My Kindle is frozen on the charge screen although it has been fully charged. I've tried turning it on and off to no avail.

Have you tried holding the power button to the On position for no less than 20 seconds and release.

It always helps, when you ask a question, if you state clearly which model of Kindle you have. They don't all work the same way.

Kindle 6" WiFi registered to my account, but my mothers, will not turn on.
I have had it on charge for 6-7 hours and even though the charging LED has changed from amber to green the unit will not power.
Yes I have held the power button for 20+ seconds, to no avail.
I doubt this is turned on very much but still expect it to charge.
What can I do to make this usable?

Try plugging it into a computer for a while. That sometimes wakes them up.

thank you,
the PC sees the Kindle and the contents of "documents" but still no screen display.
I will leave it plugged in here for the next hour or so and see what the outcome is then.
but I fear that it may now be an "ex-kindle"

now fixed after 5 button restarts
I finally did the following:
Charge from PC
hold power button for 15 seconds
LED flashes 3 times
continue holding 15 seconds more
release
power on
unit initialises
i do not know what part of that brought it to life but now I take these Frankenstein skills elsewhere.
Thank you Denis
