3rd Method - Try Charging your Kindle Fire

If you won't able to turn on your Kindle fire with Step 1, then follow step 2. Most probably it happens that resetting doesn’t solve the problem and still the Kindle fire won’t charge and turn on. One reason for this is a dead battery.


Try connecting the charger which comes with your Kindle fire device and leave it on for some time. If you can see the battery screen with charging going on, then most probably the battery might have got exhausted. Let the battery get charged for few hours and then you will able to turn on and use your Kindle Fire device after some time.

4th Method - Try using different Power Source

If you are not able to see the battery charging screen and your Kindle Fire won’t charge then try using a different power source. Follow these steps mentioned below:-
