I am on my second Kindle Fire. I am having the same problem now that I had with the first one. When I plug it in, the battery status bar does not change to green. Just stays red and does not charge. Tried plugging it in different places and different way. HELP! I am getting frustrated, I have only had it for 10 days!
I'm on my second defective hd 8.9 with unsolvable battery problems...
I'm just going to get my $330 back. This device has caused me nothing but problems.
On the contrary, my original kindle fire is doing great and I'm using it now.
