My Kindle Fire just stopped working all of a sudden and it's only 3 months old. Has anyone else experienced this issue and if so was there a remedy to fix the issue (i;e hard boot etc)?

Ivan - Try rebooting it.

Make sure it's fully charged. Unplug the Fire.
Hold the power button in for a full 30 seconds (count them).
Press the power button again to turn it back on.
The "kindle fire" screen will appear for a couple of minutes while it's coming back on.

This also saved me! I turned my kindle fire off last night ( checked battery and found fully charged) and when I went to turn it on next morning -NOTHING! It's done similar to me several times but never this long. Found this post and voila! It is back! Is it some kind of bug with the fire? I also have had this for a couple months and it has frozen on as well to where I couldn't shut off or change screens as well. When battery died it came on. I have never dropped my kindle or gotten wet or anything so .... Just wondering!

My KIndle Fire HD is 3 weeks old. Yesterday, I shut it down and plugged it in to recharge. After fully charged and unplugged, my attempts to turn it on were futile. It comes on but with a strange screen and
"Kindle Fire" barely visible. I have been able to get it back on by holding the power button in for a while
and retrying to start. Eventually, it did come back on. I am afraid to shut it down now and have recharged it without shutting it down.
