Amazon Fire Tablet Help

I have two Fires with problems that I think are hopeless. Just checking to see if anyone has an idea.


#1 - Touching the screen does not respond at all.


#2 - It fell face down on the hard floor and the screen shattered. The tablet still works but the shattered glass is too loose to use. (Thank heavens, I am the one who did this.)



Replacement is less than $50 each, and that is the only solution I see.


Thanks

For the frozen screen try this and use a timer for the 40 seconds. Itís worked for me.

You can often get a new fire for $50 so I donít know if replacing the screen for $50 is worth it.

I'd watch for sales and buy new ones. I'm on my third one. The first-ever one I had was $99. The two others and the two my mom has owned have both been $39 on sale.

Thanks so much. No luck though. I didn't time it exactly 40 seconds, going over two or three maybe.


I guess I will be looking for a sale.
