I fixed my Kindle Fire not coming on by plugging in Kindle Fire to charge and let it charge for 2 hours and then holding down the on button for up to 2 minutes until the Tablet reset and turned on the screen. I have had to do this twice now and I have had my Kindle Fire for over 4 years now. Rich

It is possible that your Kindle Fire's battery has died. If you noticed the battery life diminishing before it wouldn't turn on at all this may be the case. Here is a site that has replacement batteries for the Kindle Fire:

SOURCE: Kindle light is orange when

Try to slide and hold the on switch until after the power light blinks three times (should happen after a little more than 5 seconds). Release the switch after the blinks and the Kindle should start up.

This is only necessary if the Kindle was switched off by the same method before, or if the battery was completely drained. A short nudge of the power switch merely puts it in and out of a power-saving sleep mode, the prolonged hold really cuts / reinstates power.

Kindle will not shut off-goes to shut off or cancel but wont move. doesnt charge well-doesnt always hold charge


Patricia, Using the power switch, you can forcibly reset your Kindle device. This reset will shut down the Kindle without accessing the shutdown command from within the Kindle's operating system, a particularly useful tool when dealing with a frozen Kindle. To initiate a hard shutdown, Kindle disconnect from its charger, slide and hold the power switch for about 20 seconds. This will force the Kindle to shut down, now it can be restarted normally.
Check links below for charging problems.
