Can't offer any info since you didn't state which Kindle. The original Fire had issues with the charging port and Amazon was replacing them - even when out of warranty. I have no idea if they are still replacing them or not. "Kindle quit" is not very descriptive!!

People who abuse their Kindles have problems with them. If you: put heavy books, coffee mugs, etc, on top of the Kindle screen, if you drop / bump the Kindle, if you store the Kindle in very hot, or very cold, places, if you jailbreak the Kindle to load things it was not meant to load, etc, you will have problems with it...which will be your fault. Amazon has been very good about replacing Kindles which were defective by no fault of the customer. Loading many items on a Kindle can cause it to operate-load, turn pages, etc-slowly, and can strain the battery, and cause it to crash. Keep most items in The Cloud, and store fewer on the Kindle itself. I killed a Kindle battery this way, and got a new Kindle free. Pulling / shoving too hard, or at a bit of an angle, when inserting / removing the charging plug can damage the plug, and so cause charging problems. Most Kindles are pretty good, and most problems are caused by operator error. If you just got a lemon, return it for a replacement. It should still be under warranty after only 5 months.
