Why Kindle Fire won’t turn on?

While you may think the only reason why Kindle Fire won’t turn on is damaged hardware, it is just one of the possible reasons. Some other could be corrupted files on the device, issues with an outlet or a Kindle fire charger, and the fact the device doesn’t have enough power. So, before jumping to conclusions, give the solutions below a chance.

Let it charge

If your device has insufficient power and you start charging it, it may not turn on right away. Sometimes, you will have to wait for a while and then try to turn it on.

Change the charger, check the cables, and change the outlet

A faulty charger could be the culprit, so make sure you are using the one you’ve got with your Kindle Fire device. If the charger is broken or damaged, switch to another one compatible with Kindle Fire.

Make sure the cables are not damaged or broken. Sometimes, even the small damage on the cable may cause problems. If that’s the case, the device may charge super slowly, or not charge at all.

Another thing to do is to change the outlet. If you think the outlet is the problem try charing some other device using the same outlet. If it is charging slowly or not charing at all, try another outlet.

Soft reset

If you tried all of the previous options listed above, and your Kindle Fire won’t turn on, what you should do next is performing a soft reset. This won’t affect the data you have on your Amazon device, but it may resolve a variety of issues, including this when the tablet won’t turn on. To perform a soft reset, just press and hold the Power button for 40 seconds. After 40 seconds, release the button. This should reboot your device.

Is your device under warranty?

If your device is still under warranty, make sure to contact Amazon. You could get a free repair, or you may get a free replacement.
