Mine did that just after I had got it. Just a long shot, but I held the on /off button down for a while and that worked for mine.

This has happened to my kindle today as well. I've had it 18 months and I use it daily. I'm gutted I need to replace it.

 

I'm going to try it on with Amazon though as I can give them the details of 5 different people who've all had their kindles replaced (within warranty) over the past 6 weeks for this exact issue. It must therefore be a manufacturing defect!

If you turn it off using the slider the text is replaced by a wallpaper that stays on. But if as Mandem says you hold the slider across for a few seconds it turns off completely and the screen blanks. Worth a try?

you need to hold it for a minimum of 20 seconds then it takes a couple of minutes (sometimes) to come back on. Don't be alarmed.
