I think I've found the solution.


Use the volume buttons on the side of the device, not the volume control drop down on the screen. I always assumed they did the same thing, but the buttons on the side seem to control the volume within Skype, but the on-screen slider doesn't do anything.

Thank you. Using the volume control on the side of the Kindle is the only thing that worked for me.

Thanks again!

In my Kindle HD, look different from waht you describe, I have just volume control in the back of tablet, and this is ok . I can rear  the Eccho/Sound test, but I am not able to rear me,. I do not have other volume control in the screen.

There are two Skype apps on the Amazon AppStore. Use "Skype" and not "Skype (Android Edition)" on Fire OS. Description of the each app mentions compatibility. Skype version has no volume issues if you are on latest 5.4R.
