Sry about the delay.. I was counting on an email notification but never got one.. Anyway.

Tried it several times and this didn't work. The tablet doesn't boot up with this 2min+ power button press. Anyone have any other ideas please?

Not sure what Kindle you have since you did not say.
The HD Kindles as far as I know will not boot into fastboot using commands so, your is normal.

I am pretty sure your tablet is not recoverable depending on what fastboot commands you were trying when it stopped booting.
Do you remember what you were attempting to do?
If an incorrect non-signed partition was flashed to the tablet (e.g., from some other Kindle model), the tablet will be bricked.
If the wrong image was flashed to the bootloader partition, you are also bricked since the bootloader is key to turning on the tablet.
If your tablet is warm when plugged in, it means it charges at least.
Since the tablet will not turn on, or get into fastboot using the command line on your PC, there is nothing else to do.
The 8.9 tablet does not support the use of a fastboot cable.

Extract KFFirstAide whichever version 32 or 64

Copy the folder to c:\

rename it to just KFFirstAide

add that to your path

Code:
;C:\KFFirstAide
Open the folder KFHD_SRTv2.1 then open images folder and copy system.img

paste it into the KFFirstAide folder

then open the two other img files you downloaded and paste them into the KFFirstAide folder as well

you should now have:

system.img
boot.img
recovery.img

All three files in the KFFirstAide folder

now

Open up an Administrative Command Prompt from within the KFFirstAide

go to the c:\ drive hold the shift key and right click on the folder KFFirstAide then select Open a command prompt here.

enter this command at the prompt

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product
it should come back with

< waiting for device >

If you are stuck at the red triangle screen

Make sure your device is totally off hold the power button for like 30 seconds until it turns off
next plug in your device with the usb cable

it should boot into fastboot mode

and show something like:

product: Jem-PVT-Prod-04
finished. total time: 0.009s

then type this command

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 devices
should come back with something like this

7EE400003C002FFF fastboot

then type this command

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash system system.img
should come back with something like

target reported max download size of 1006632960 bytes
sending 'system' (907264 KB)...
OKAY [ 48.857s]
writing 'system'...
OKAY [ 60.331s]
finished. total time: 109.193s

next command

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot boot.img
should show something like

target reported max download size of 1006632960 bytes
sending 'boot' (8192 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.449s]
writing 'boot'...
OKAY [ 0.571s]
finished. total time: 1.024s

next command

Code:
C:\KFFirstAide>fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery recovery.img
should see something like

target reported max download size of 1006632960 bytes
sending 'recovery' (8192 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.449s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 0.565s]
finished. total time: 1.020s

these next commands take forever

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 erase cache
should come back with

erasing 'cache'...
OKAY [ 47.246s]
finished. total time: 47.250s

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 erase userdata
should come back with

erasing 'userdata'...
OKAY [2149.490s]
finished. total time: 2149.494s

and finally

Code:
fastboot reboot -i 0x1949
once it starts rebooting disconnect the USB cable

once you are back up and running you will be at version 8.1.4

to get to current version

you can use KFFirstAide and this time run

c:\KFFirstAide\RunMe.bat

use the option enable OTA updates

you will have to make sure ADB is enabled under security first on your kindle

once you enable OTA updates then unplug the USB

Next :

Charge the battery, and then connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Swipe down from the top of the screen, and then tap Sync.

The software update automatically downloads in the background and installs after the download is complete and the device is asleep.

Your Kindle Fire will restart during the software update. After the restart, the message “Kindle is updating” will appear on the screen and when it's finished you will be at the latest software version.

Amazing! THANKS!! after weeks stuck in FB and logo, I'm back. cheers
