Default Kindle Fire Dead

Turned my Kindle fire off today, and went back a few hours later to turn it back on and it would not do anything, Wont power on, I have charged it for several hours using multiple chargers. Also tried to boot off the fast boot cable. Im assuming im going to have to send it back fore warranty. Whats my worse case Scenario here since it was rooted and had a custom rom installed. any chances of amazon detecting that. If I cant get it to boot back up will they be able to?

Same thing happened to me. Custom rom and rooted. I returned mine and received a new one without a problem. Imho I don't even think they bothered to check the one I returned.

EDIT......Mine was less than two weeks old and I think that is why I received a new one. I don't know if they fix the ones that run past the return policy period.

Yes tried the fast boot cable did no good.

I contacted Amazon they walked me through doing a hard reset, afterwards it booted up fine right into my custom Rom. Anyone else has this issue, They just had me hold down the power button for 20 Seconds let go then power it on.

Had the same problem today on the Stock JB rom by hashcode. Its been 4 days since I flashed over. Turned on fine this morning, then 20min later... blank screen. When I pluged in stock USB the green charging light was on, but still no screen, I then performed the 20sec hard reset, its been working since.
