Hello, Sorry you're having problems. The screen of a Kindle Fire CAN be replaced, but it is not something that the average person can do home, as it requires not only the outer screen itself, but also the "Digitizer" which is the component that processes the touch screen commands on the device. However if you've performed this type of repair before, then you can contact the folks at the site below and they can sell you the screen and digitizer for your Fire:

Alternatively, if this is not something you're comfortable with, then I would suggest contacting the folks at Mission Repair as they specialize in E-Reader repair and can perform this work for you:

Hello, I was just following up to see if you needed further help. The site shows that since the question is open that you are still looking for help. Or, if you received the information you were looking for-could you please kindly rate my service POSITIVELY (by clicking a 3-5 star rating at the top of the page) to reflect that? Thanks in advance.
