@cenglish53 , Constance, If charge port is found to be bad/loose/damaged , this is really not a repair for the inexperienced because the charge port for your device is soldered to the mother board and the heat generated could cause further damage if not very careful. I will post a link showing what is involved in repairing a mini USB attached to the board. The 2nd link is to new charge port, which you can also do a search for better pricing perhaps if needed. 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.

Your port is widened. The way to fix it is to open up the kindle. Kindle 1st Generation SD Card Reader Replacement STOP AFTER STEP 4 as your in the kindle, What you then do is use something to push the connector down to make it a tighter fit. Be careful not to short out anything on the motherboard or damage the connector
