My Kindle froze, literally

My kindle was working fine before I put it in the car for the drive home from the Christmas holidays. It was a very cold day (20F), the kindle was on the floor in the back seat. When I got home, 2 hours later, the kindle doesn't work at all. I've tried charging it. Nothing seems to help.

It could just be that the LCD is frozen. 20F isn't that cold, plus it wouldn't be that temperature in the car but if the reader was exposed to it for a long time, that could be the problem. However, being on the floor, it may have got bounced around and that, combined with the cold, may have caused some damage.

Let it thaw slowly and see how it responds.

It's been inside for a day. Tried charging it last night. Still blank. Nothing at all happens when I push, or hold, the on button.

You may need to open it up to see if anything obvious is broken or damaged inside. Perhaps the LCD broke from the cold as well. Depending on which tablet model you have, it may not be worth fixing.
