@jbessette , Justin, That is strange that the shops you visited only worked on iPads, they must have had their hands full. Maybe go on line and see cell phone/computer repair shops listed and contact. Or if you would like to give the fix a try read below.

If port is found to be bad, this is really not a repair for the inexperienced usually, because the charge port for your Kindle is soldered to the mother board and the heat generated could cause further damage if not very careful. I will post a link to a tear down guide to get you inside the tablet to check the charge port and will also post a link showing what is involved in repairing a mini USB attached to the board. The last link is to new charge port, which you can also do a search for better pricing perhaps if needed.The whole Logic Board assy. can be had for $54.00 or less by searching if estimates to high by shops and then maybe worth you doing repair. If not wanting to do the repair yourself have a good computer/cell phone repair shop have a look and estimate repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

the most reputable place im aware of to take it, is CPR Cell Phone Repair. It is a franchise with over 200 stores open in north America, and repairs come with a life time warranty on quality.

If you are interested in repairing it yourself, it really is not a too difficult repair.

I'm not sure where you are located, but Ubreakifix is a franchise with locations across the country. I had this same issue and they were able to fix it.
