Kindle Fire Charging Port Repair Under Microscope by RockITRepairs

The answer to this common Kindle fire charging port problem can be found in the hands of our experienced, competent techs

It has become an all too common occurrence for Kindle owners- they plug their tablet in, allow plenty of time for a full recharge, yet return to find that their Kindle is still suffering from a dead or dying battery. They might try some of the simpler troubleshooting tips (i.e. hold power button down for 30, then plug into charger to reset; clean port with 99% alcohol); a few may get lucky and discover a charging “sweet spot”, found by wiggling the USB cable into the charging port at exactly the right angle, but at that point, their Kindle’s battery is living on borrowed time. Eventually, the Kindle won’t charge at all, and the charging port has bcome noticeably loose.


Why would this happen to a perfectly functioning tablet that isn’t even two years old?


The Kindle Charging Port Repair Defect

If any of this sounds familiar, then it sounds as though your Kindle has been exhibiting the symptoms indicative of the Kindle Charging Port Defect, This surprisingly common problem is caused by an improperly soldered connection on the motherboard, and it seems to affect the Kindle Fire more frequently than the rest of the Kindle family.


This problem is so widespred that it was estimated (because Amazon doesn’t release exact figures) that between 12.5% – 13.3% of the tablets sold in one sales quarter would end up being returned due to customer dissatisfaction ( ).


Those folks able to return theirs for a free, brand-new replacement are fortunate, but few. The defect tends to show up following the expiration of the warranty, at around 1 1/2 years of age. Apparently, Amazon has done nothing to make this right, as people are posting about it today on the Amazon Kindle forums  (
