My Kindle Fire was working fine until this weekend, then it just died??? Does it need a new battery? Who do I contact? When connected to an electric outlet, the orange light does not come on?

Make sure it's charged then try a hard reset. Hold the power button down for twenty seconds. Then try restarting the kindle. If that doesn't work call Amazon CS.

I once had my fire just die on me. Didn't respond at all. But once I did the restart it came right back to life just fine.

There seem to be some problems, but customer service is great. I am on mt 2nd fire. Part of my screen went goofy, then screen totally black several days later. The replacement works fine. Call customer support.
