My nephews kindle fire hd 2nd gen screen won't light up, need help


First thing to verify is that it is fully charged. You should see a green light indicating that it is charged completely. If it does not come one then, press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds. That may get it to start up.

When I turn on my Kindle, I can't go to my apps carosel


To turn off the Kindle Fire HD completely, hold the power button down for 2-3 seconds and release. A "Shut Down" button will appear (opposite "Cancel"). Touch that button. Allow the unit to cycle off completely. Wait one minute, then power up again. Your functionality should be restored.

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:

When I picked up my Kindle to read it today, the screen was on and frozen. I tried to turn the page and nothing happened. I tried turning it on and off and nothing happened. My husband held the power...


Your husband switched the device off. If you give the power switch a short nudge only, it goes in and out of "stand-by" mode, it is not really switched off.


Try to slide and hold the power switch again, until after the power light blinks three times. Should happe after ~5 seconds of holding. The Kindle should restart now --- takes about a minute, but you will see a progress bar to keep you happy during the delay.

My kindle wi-fi is not working. I went to turn it on and the light came on but stayed at the screen saver screen.


Make sure that the kindle is fully charged. Plug your kindle into the wall charger, a yellow light will light up. When the yellow light turns green, your kindle is fully charged. Then try turning on your device. If the device still does not turn on, hold the power switch for 15 seconds, this will reboot the device.

Non responsive (battery is fully charged). Screen has frozen up.


There is a reset button at the bottom (insert paper clip in pinhole). If all attempts trying to unfreeze it fail, you may have a logic board issue. Are you sure the Kindle powers up? Try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.
