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.

Press and hold the Power button on the bottom of the device for about 30 seconds. The Kindle Fire should reset and now be functional.

Reply back if that does not fix it.

I'm sorry, your Kindle is DOA and will need to be replaced.

To expedite your replacement, please call the number. When you receive and register the replacement, all of your books will be available once again.
