Connected Power and held start button down after 10 seconds came on 'Kindle Fire" and then went off after about 5 seconds, did not start.I have tried three different power cords to outlet and two differnt cables to computer. No difference

I'm sorry, unfortunately, in this case, it is a hardware issue. The kindle is a few years old, and it had trouble on and off for a month as you said, so you need a new kindle.

- In the mean time, if you'd like to, I can show you how to read your Kindle books on your computer and/or on a tablet / smartphone if you have.

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
