I plugged in my Kindle it didn't light up to show it was charging. Moving the power button did nothing. I held down the select button on the five way and it went to the offer. Then I could navigate from the home button et cetera. And it glowed amber to show it was charging. In the morning it went to green. But when I unplugged the power it kept glowing green running down the battery. The power button still does nothing. I can still get it to come on with the select button. What can I do?

Unplug your charger, then hold the power switch in the on position for a full 20 seconds. Time them as it matters. Then release the switch and set your device down. It should reboot and hopefully correct your glitch. Don't touch any buttons until the reboot is complete. It may take a few minutes.
