    Reasons why a Kindle Fire won't turn on

    A Kindle Fire that won't charge could be the result of a couple of different problems:



    • A problem with the charger or socket.
    • Damaged or corrupted files on the device.

    How To Fix With Kindle Fire That Won't Turn On

    1. Anything from a new charger or a soft reset to a factory reset could restart the tablet. Solving the problem may involve a rather simple solution.
    2. Give it a chance to upload. If a Kindle Fire is charging slowly, it may not turn on.
    3. Check the charger. Using the wrong charger or a broken charger could prevent your Kindle Fire from charging and turning on. Make sure you are using the charger that came with your device or a cable and adapter compatible with Kindle Fire devices.
    4. Charging a Kindle Fire through a USB port on your computer could increase charging times or prevent charging altogether.
    5. Plug the adapter into an outlet that you know works, preferably in another room or on another wall. One way to test this is to plug a different device or device into the socket and make sure it works before plugging your Kindle Fire into the same socket.
    6. Avoid turning on a Kindle Fire in a very hot or very cold area.
    7. Make sure the cable is firmly connected to both the adapter and the Kindle. Connect the charger to another device and plug it into the socket to make sure the cable and adapter are working properly. If not, charge your Kindle with a different charger that works properly.
    8. If you have a protective case or screen, remove it and test the device without it.
    9. Press and hold the key Power for 40 seconds. Release the button. The charge indicator should light up after a few seconds and then the Kindle Fire should restart. If not, continue with the troubleshooting.

    Perform a soft reset. A soft reset will fix many common problems without affecting the data on your device.

    Perform a factory reset. A hard reset will reset your Kindle Fire to settings and return it to the way it was when it arrived from the factory. In fact, you will start from scratch and lose any data, settings or multimedia content downloaded to your tablet.



    If your Kindle Fire has been unplugged for a while and you think the battery may be low, plug the device into the wall charger and let it charge for at least 5 minutes before starting this process. Do not disconnect the kindle during the restore process.


    1. Press and hold the Volume down e power buttons simultaneously. The Amazon system recovery screen should appear.
    2. Pass to Wipe Data / Factory Reset using the buttons Volume.
    3. Press the Power button to select reset.
    4. Going up Yes, delete all user data using the buttons Volume.
    5. Press the Power button to complete the reset.

    Once the reset is complete, you may need to update your Kindle Fire to make sure you have the latest firmware and software installed on your device.
