Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.

Add this page to your Favorites/Bookmarks first, so as to get back to me anytime later on, if needed.

The Kindle Fire comes with a partially charged battery.

If it's not powering on, try this:

Press and hold the Power button on the bottom of the device for about 20 seconds. In some situations, it may take a bit longer.

Reply back if that did not work.

Has the screen lit up at all?

Do you see any lights on where you plug the charger cable into the Kindle?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The screen does not light up. The green light of the charger goes on but off right away.

Did you try unplugging the Kindle and then doing the reset procedure?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I think I fixed it myself. Thanks.
