So the battery died completely in my girlfriends rooted Kindle Fire. When plugged into the USB cable via the computer, it would just keep shutting off and on again. I plugged it into the wall outlet, it boot up to CM9 and then shut right off again and indicated it was charging. Went to turn it on now and the device simply wont turn on. The back light turns on and off via the power button, but the device does NOT power on at all. Help?

Questions:

Have you pressed the power button for 20 seconds to shut it down and try again?

What version of FireFireFire are you using?

How long did you let it charge before trying again?

When the device is turned on, does it show up in your device manager?

When the device is turned on, are you able to send adb or fastboot commands like "adb devices" or "fastboot devices"?

Thanks! I was able to get it to boot finally by simply holding down the power button while it was plugged into the AC outlet. I have no idea why that worked!
