Will not turn on - battery or charging circuit?
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" - battery indicator showed power was low, waited too long to plug in the charger, now it will not power up. Tried different chargers, overnight charging, and cables, even a PC overnight. Tried holding power button to reset as well as power and volume up. USB / charging port seems snug.
- If the battery was dead, would it turn on with the charger attached?
- Is there any type of circuit between the USB port and the battery that would require power from the battery in order to operate (to charge the battery)?
- Can I get access to the battery connections to manually put a small charge on the battery? (yes, I am willing to kludge together two 'C' cells and hook it to the internal battery to jump start the charging circuit if it exists.)
- Are the batteries the same for the HD and HDX?
- What did I not ask?
Thank you for the teardown information!
Is this a good question?
