kindle fire screen freeze

Hello Linda! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Have you tried this: If you have any cover on the kindle fire, please remove it for now. Then press & hold the power on/off button on the kindle fire for about 45 seconds, then turn it back on and check.

Please let me know. Thank you.

Sorry, when you try to press & hold the power button for about 45 seconds, does the kindle fire get turned off? Thank you.

yes but although it comes back on I still have a screen freeze

Make sure the cover, if there is one, is taken off the kindle fire. Can you charge the kindle fire for bit, then while charging, press & hold the power button for about 60 seconds this time. Thank you.
