Make sure the device is charged. The Kindle does not use a lot of power, I need to charge mine every three weeks only, but it eventually depletes. The power LED should turn from orange to green when fully charged.

If the Kindle still does not switch on using the slide-and-hold, it most likely is defect and is in need of a repair.

Only one other thing comes to mind: the Kindle 3 (6" display, black case) uses a patented sliding lock to hook into protective covers sold by Amazon. This innocent looking hooks are in fact quite nifty, they also act as power connectors to external lighting build into more expensive protection covers. The first series of non-lighted covers from Amazon has been reported to interfere with electrical internals of the Kindles. For later covers, this flaw was fixed.
If you feel you suffer from this problem, contact Amazon support by calling one of these numbers: Inside the United States: 1-866-321-8851, Outside the United States: 1-206-266-0927. They are usually quite forthcoming in helping customers.

The kindle won't 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:
