Motherboard was shorted out
Repair went well thanks to IFIXIT. Amazon and Kindle were a lost cause. Tried to sell me a $199 over the internet repair and it didn't work. Took Kindle to REPAIRMYPC to get problem solved. NEVER BUY ANOTHER KINDLE@!
DON'T BUY A KINDLE AND EXPECT HELP FROM AMAZON OR KINDLE . . .
