Default [Q] Kindle Fire HD (Bricked?)

Kindle Fire HD (Bricked?)
Okay, so my Kindle Fire HD, I deauthorized my previous amazon account, when I was attempting to sell it. Now after it is removed everything is cleared. For example , I cant access the setting torwards the top, all my applications are gone, my cloud is empty, and many other problems I might not of noticed. Either way, I am mad. The kindle has never been rooted, nor has it ever downloaded 3rd party applications, besides the ones provided by amazon. I can still swipe and see like Silk and the default apps, but anything else is gone. Also when I try to access the apps like Silk and Appstore the kindle's screen goes black and refuses to work.

that's no really brick, you just need to do a hard reset.
During bootloader splash screen (blue Kindle logo), press Power repeatedly to open boot menu and move selection from Normal Boot to Recovery. Then select (with volume and power buttons) wipe data/factory reset, select yes and let it work. Now select reboot system now and your Fire HD should work normally!
