I have a kindle and it is white and wont turn on.

The warning sign saying it was almost dead kept coming on and then it just went all white so I thought it died its been on the charger and the light says its charging but when I try and turn it on, the light flashes and it goes white again. Is it just dead?

How long has it been charging?

If it's charged a couple hours, it sounds like the charge port has been damaged. It gets just enough power to recognize it's plugged in, but nothing else. You can test this by using another power cord, tethering to your computer, and switching wall outlets.

Then leave it charging and leave it alone until the charger light turns green, telling you that it's been fully charged.

the green light turned on and it still stays white when I try and turn it on.

You need to get it serviced, then, because something's wrong. It may just need a new battery, but I've not seen where you can buy new batteries for Kindles.

See if it fully charges (the light turns green). Then try to boot up by holding the button a few seconds.
