Kindle Fire will not 'boot'

A Kindle Fire, will not proceed beyond the rolling logo.

Using the 'volume control reset' option does not work.

Next move please.

Have jou tried the Amazon recommendation of holding the power button down for a full 40 secs?

Thanks On the limit. This a cry for help from one of my flock Am visiting him this pm-will check him out then.

Generally when this happened with earlier Android devices it seemed to be a write off. Is this still so?

Is the battery flat? My Galaxy tab wouldn't boot up when battery was fully flat. Had to wait about half an hour with it on charge before it would work again.

You were right on

When I got to look at it it was showing battery sign not rotating logo.

Moreover he said that it is on its second charger.

So as it is less than a year old I advised him to return all PDQ.
