You can see if holding the power button for about 10 seconds will reset it.

SOURCE: My kindle will not start up even though it has

Yes:

  1. Get a watch with a hand for the seconds.
  2. Slide and hold the power switch for 7 seconds. After about 5 seconds the power light flashes three times. After 7 seconds, the screen will go blank and the device is switched off now. Release the switch.
  3. Slide and hold the power switch for 15 seconds (no more, no less). Do not hold the switch too long, the time window for the reset is not very big.
  4. After releasing the switch just wait. The Kindle will reboot after a few seconds.

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.

Sounds like your power cord is dead and that it's not charging. If it's new bring it back to the store you bought it from and get a new one.

My kindle fire is charged, but it just stopped working.Do these units just die after a few years?


My Kindle Fire has been working for many years.

Try rebooting by holding down the power button, ignoring the "Shut down" prompt until it turns off. Then press and hold the power button until it starts to reboot. Does it?

I left my Kindle fire on and it went dead. Now I cannot turn it on


Put it on charge for at least an hour.

Press and HOLD the power button in the ON position for a slow count of 30.
Ignore whatever happens and just keep it held on.
Now go drink a cup of tea and let it calm down.

Now touch the power button as normal to turn on.

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:
