If for some reason you can’t seem to take a screenshot on your Kindle Fire HD 7 ensure that you are indeed pressing both the volume down and power button down at the same time.

Also make sure you are holding down both buttons long enough for the screenshot to register. A good rule of thumb is to at least give the Kindle 1-2 seconds to recognize that the buttons have been pushed.
