Kindle fire HDX 7 USB port repair

Is it difficult to replace the USB port on my kindle fire because I am having major problems trying to charge it up. The USB is not connecting right all the time and I have to keep wiggling it to connect.

I hope its a simple task and not expensive as I can't afford a lot of money to repair and I can't replace it either.

Here is a guide on how you can go about replacing the USB charging port: Kindle Fire HDX 7" USB Charging Port Replacement

Its not the best guide in the galaxy and you might need to fill in some logical gaps there, but it has most of the basic stuff you need to know. Once you're in to the tablet the replacement is a breeze. You will need a Torx Driver and something to pry the tablet open.

You can find the replacement part here: Kindle Fire HDX 7" Charging Port

It should run for 30$ plus tax and the cost of any tools you might need.

I did this last night. With my 3 year old twins eagerly hanging on my ares. It took me about 30 minutes. Of that, 25 minutes was spent trying to figure out how to separate the front of the kind from the back once all the screws were out. Had I looked for a teardown video, that would probably have gone smoother.

I could probably replace it again in 10 minutes.

The Kindle edges were pretty bardly marred by me int he process ("If I can't fix it, I'm going to throw it away anyway, so...."). It sits in a case anyway, so.. enh. :)
