SOURCE: I still can't get my Kindle to turn on even after

First call amazon customer support! They are really good at helping you get your kindle back up and running.
A couple questions to ask yourself Is the kindle fully charged? There might only be enough power for the green LED and not the actual kindle!
If this is your last resort:
I have never done this, and it would certainly void your warrant but I am told that there is a reset button underneath the cover of the kindle...

    It will not power up. was on the charger most of the day.


    To wake up or turn on your Kindle, slide and release the power switch again. If your Kindle does not power on or is unresponsive during use, try resetting the device by disconnecting your Kindle from any power source, and then sliding and holding the power switch for 15 seconds before releasing.

    My Kindle Fire HD won't turn off. I was watching a movie on Netflix and the picture just froze


    Turning Off the Kindle
    Quickly sliding the power switch on the Kindle enters and resumes sleep mode. If your Kindle enters a non-responsive state when sliding the power switch, you've likely entered sleep mode. Try sliding the power switch and holding it for four seconds to shut down the device. If it still does not shut off, you may need to reset the Kindle.

    Resetting the Kindle
    The power switch also serves to reset the device. Before resetting the device, disconnect it from any power sources, such as an AC outlet or your computer's USB connection. Sliding the power switch and holding it for 20 seconds forces the Kindle to reset and power down. However, a nearly depleted battery may prevent this action. If the Kindle still doesn't shut off, try charging it for several hours and resetting it again.

    Kindle light is orange when I charge but even after of hours of charging continuous efforts to turn on Kindle, it won't turn on.


    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.
