Kindle Fire Charging Issues

Is your brand new Kindle Fire permanently battery dead? Has your Kindle Fire suddenly stopped charging? If so, you are not alone. Resources say that about 13-15% of Kindle Fires on every sales batch are returned due to customer dissatisfaction, all because of the same problem. Sadly, these figures don’t even begin to describe the horrors. This 15% are just the fortunate few who have been able to get their brand new Kindle Fires replaced on discovering this fault. Sadly, a much larger number of customers end up facing the problem post expiration of warranty, after about a year of purchase or so, and are thereby rendered completely helpless with an insatiable urge for reading and a dead device to back it up. Amazon is yet to take any suitable action to solve this problem, resulting in a brimming number of frustrated customers, who are now sharing their grudge on the Kindle Fire forum.

So is there a way out? Or is your new Kindle Fire dead for better or for worse? Thankfully, there is an explanation, and even a cheap way out. The fault found in most Kindle devices is the Kindle Charging Port Defect, a surprisingly common and yet unnoticed problem found in Kindle Fires, caused due to an improper soldering in the motherboard. The symptoms are simple. Even after putting your Kindle Fire for charging for several long hours, you get back to find out their device is still presenting itself with a dead battery.

Fixing charging issues with a bad repair from another shop

There are the usual troubleshooting tips, like holding the power button down for 30 seconds, then plug into charger to reset, or, cleaning port with 99% alcohol. But if your problem is real, this probably won’t work. You may be able to temporarily run your Kindle by finding a sweet spot, on insertion of your charger into the port from a special angle or position, which miraculously causes it to charge up. But chances are, sooner or later, you will end up with the same problem. Your Kindle Fire will be doornail, and Amazon won’t give a damn. That’s when you need to come to us.

iphone battery on fire in a microwave
/ By Jonathan Hawkins / iPhone / 0 Comments

We decided to see what would happen if we took an iPhone 5 battery from a working device and put it into a microwave for a minute or two. You always hear about batteries exploding or catching fire so we decided to take matters into our own hands and put the heat/battery myth to the test. What we saw was pretty awesome!

LG G2 model cracked screen repairs
/ By Jonathan Hawkins / LG / 0 Comments

At RockIT Repairs we specialize in LG G2 cracked screen repairs. We back our LG G2 glass and lcd repairs with a 30 day warranty on parts & labor. We work on all four models of the LG G2. We have seen many issues with the G2 glass quality. Almost any drop that cracks the screen seems to completely render the digitizer usless. It generally will not sense touch after even the smallest crack. We can not only fix and replace the glass on a G2 but we can work on other board level repairs on this device from charging ports to microphone replacement.
