    Kindle Fire Charging Problems

    I have an original Kindle Fire. The charging recepticle on the unit seems to have difficulties. When I plug in a cable, I often have problems getting the charging light to come on. It might finally come on, but then a short time later it may go off. If I wiggle the connection, it may come back on, or I might have to unplug it and then plug it back in "hard". This seems to happen with more than one cable.

    I can't detect any problems with the connector, but there must be something there. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I have several Kindle Fire's. An intermittent problem like this is often caused by the micro B connector on the USB cord "stretching" open. VERY CAREFULLY crush the top and bottom (not the sides) closed. Just a tiny bit at a time. Wear the Good Glasses and be careful.

    You can do this with the power on. Squash a little and try it. If need be, squash a little more.

    I have this problem too. I plug it in while it is on, set it down on a firm surface, jiggle the cord until the charging icon appears, then carefully turn it off without disturbing the cable. Also make sure you have a charger that is at least 1.8 amps or it will take longer.
    (Does it hurt to leave Kindles plugged in to the charger all the time? My MIL insists on doing this, but SIL else thinks it damages the battery. The battery does last less than when it was new. )
