Please charge the kindle fire and while charging the kindle fire, press and hold the power button for about 60 seconds this time, then turn it on and check.If that does not work, was the kindle fire dropped? Did you purchase the Kindle Fire from Amazon online previously? Or at another store?Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

I'm sorry, this is a hardware issue. The battery could be bad as there is no light and/or the main board is bad. But Amazon will do warranty repair or replacement for you. In the mean time, do you have a computer or a tablet or smartphone? If yes, I can show you how to read your books, if any, on any device of yours, if you do not know how yet. Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

I should add when I swirch on from the charger, the screen lights up for a few seconds then goes off
Expert:  Viet - E-Reader Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry; that means the battery is very weak or the systemboard is bad. You can have Amazon repair or replace this for you. In the mean time, do you know how to read books, if any, on another device of yours? Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
