Why won’t my Kindle Fire HD6 turn on?

I have charged the device in multiple outlets, but it still won't power on again--I am not sure if the device is even holding a charge. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Answer this question I have this problem too

First, make sure that the Kindle Fire is charged. To check that it is charging, make sure the charger is plugged into your device correctly, and that the outlet you are using is providing electricity. (Try plugging in something else to the same outlet and making sure that it works.) If your device is charged, but still not powering on, there is most likely an issue with the motherboard. There is an even higher likelihood that your motherboard may have failed if your device has been subjected to any water damage or a powerful electric shock.

I know this is probably too late for you, but I have seen an issue with this tablet where it is actually turned on but the screen doesn't light up. You can tell this is happening because if you keep pressing the power button (holding it to initiate a shutdown) you here the beeps from the pop-up window confirming if you really want to turn it off.

If you press on the edges/slightly twist the tablet you can get the screen to turn on again and it will work fine for a period of time.

Plug it in like normal and wait a while then hold the button for 30 seconds or so then wait a minute then hold it again. If that doesn't work click it over and over just annoy it it should turn on

I had this occur to me before. Plug you device in to the USB and brick it came with, plug the brick in to a outlet, and then hold the power button for 30-40 seconds, and it should turn on. If it doesn't, you may need to contact Customer Support.
