The slider won't work on my kindle fire, is this the end for it's use? According to Amazon.com it is ready for the scrap heap but I think there must be a solution to the problem especially with today's new technology!

reboot - 50% battery, unplugged, hold power on for a full 30 seconds =(ignore any messages that come up and continue holding), then wait 15 seconds and turn it back on

you also may have turned on accessibility settings in which case it will take a trip finger swipe to work

Do you mean it won't unlock? Have you tried using two fingers to unlock? If you have and it works the Voice Guide / Screen reader has been turned on under Accessibility and you'll now need two fingers to swipe/scroll and a single tap followed by a double tap to open apps and settings. You need to turn the Guide/Reader off in Accessibility to restore it to single finger use.
