Default [Q] Kindle Fire HD 7 (Tate) bricked, can't enter Fastboot

Whilst attempting to flash CM11, I ran into problems. Twrp was installed and successfully booted into recovery, but CM11 wouldn't boot, I kept getting the KF bootlogo.

In trying to fix it, I erased the boot and bootloader img files, but accidentally pulled the fastboot cable before I could reflash them.

The device now won't boot, even using the fastboot cable. I've tried holding the power switch for up to 2 minutes but nothing.

Is the device beyond saving?

thanks

Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.

If it doesn't even turn on,I'm afraid it's hard-bricked.
PHP Code:
//This is in C++,not PHP
#include<iostream>
#include<string>
#include<xda>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
    
string name="SafinWasi"
    
string status="Senior Member";
    if(
I helped you){
        
cout<<"Please hit the Thanks Button!\n";
    }
    return 
0;
}
void Devices()
{
    
string Device="Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7";
    
string ROM="CyanogenMod 11 Nightly";
    
string Kernel_Version="3.0.72+";
    
string Recovery="TWRP 2.7.0.0";

thanks for your reply safinwasi, what does it mean though, is it totally beyond repair? I read about opening the case and shorting something out but think it was for a different model and the instructions seemed incomplete.

can anything be replaced to restore it?

If you have a steady hand, a soldering iron, and a USB sdcard reader, then it is salvageable.

Thanks for your replies. I thought recovery was possible but didn't know how. I managed to find someone who knew how to do this and now my Fire is working again
