Can you take a screenshot on a Kindle Fire and can you copy and paste messages and text?

Yes, you can take screenshots (hold down the power button and the left volume can then find them in the Pictures menu). And I have copied and pasted text just fine.

Thanks! This is for the normal Kindle Fire, correct?

Can you transfer books from your old Kindle to the newly purchased Fire?

Cyndie says:
If you register it to the same account, then yes, the books will show in your Cloud and you can choose to download them to the new Fire.

Can you read at night time without and other lighting but you tablet?

Cyndie says:
Yes, all the Fires are backlit, just like a computer screen.

Of the e-ink readers, the Paperwhite is the only one that can be read with no other light source but it is different than the Fires because it is front lit and won't bother your eyes the way looking at computer screen may do.

Will I be able to play farmville or anything that requires Adobe Flash or java script on my Kindle fire HD?

I am getting the Kindle Fire. I want to give my daughter my old Kindle White. Can I change the account name to her own account so she doesn't get all my books?

My Kindle Fire HD will not turn on. I know the battery was very low the last time I turned it on this morning. But I've been charging it all day. Nothing. Any ideas out there?

Allowing the battery to get very low is not a good idea. Try rebooting by holding the power button for 30 seconds.
