I both used the software power off method as well as holding down the power button for 20 seconds and in both cases the light stays on. I left the KF charging overnight and noticed that the light didn't turn green even though it was fully charged, this is when I believe the problem started.
I tried doing a factory reset, this didn't do anything, the light stayed on. Right now I am trying to drain the battery hoping that once it completely dies the light will go off and this will somehow reset something. The only explanation I can think of is that I bought a Skinomi screen protector and applied it this weekend. It required me to spray the adhesive screen protector and apply it wet to the Kindle Fire. I left the power off for the recommended 24 hours, but this is the only thing out of the ordinary I have done with it. Has anyone else heard of or seen this problem or knows anything about it?
Check the USB Port on the Fire make sure it's not damage. You could try taking a USB and hooking it up to the PC and see if that helps. It sounds to me like a hardware problem.
