That's sounds like a kf1, so wrong forum. I wouldn't worry too much, those things are practically unbrickable, even if the bootloader is corrupt up you can use usbboot to reupload it and it will work again. Think this might be useful in your case, but if it is bricked to the point you have to do that you would have to pull the internal battery and try connecting something to a contact point, there's details somewhere in the amazon kindle fire forum I think.

It died and ever since then it won't turn on. It worked fine, but like I said it died and ever since then it won't turn on.

mabe you need need to power it up with one of these, so it can get power again, i was reading somewhere that if your device dies to completely no power that it will do something that's kinda like what yours is doing now. and if you do own a Kindlefire its probably a good idea to buy one of these, or a factory cable, but this does the same think with just your normal cable attached to this adapter.http://shop.teamblackhat.info/Factor...s-motadapt.htm

Whenever I plug it in the power logo turns orange. Doesn't that mean power is getting to it?

You need to post this in the proper forum. You need the Kindle forum not KFHD7. Tech questions don't belong in the general forum either.
