Dumb mistake. Got foot wrapped in head phone jack cord and broke tip off in jack on Kindle.
I followed the info and tips given on your site. Took about 15 mins. and was back up and running.
You do have to be very careful opening the case, otherwise you might crack it. A magnifying glass will help to see the little lock downs on the 2 electrical tab connections. If you don't have a really small phillips head, an eyeglass screwdriver will do, to unfasten the headphone jack..
the audio jack died on my kindle fire and a new equivalent kindle fire was $170 but the replacement part was about $10
It was easier than I expected it took about 20 minutes the instructions on the ifixit site were good
I bought the plastic tools to open the kindle and I'm glad I did. I don't know if I would have been able to open the kindle without them.
My daughter's Kindle Fire HD (2012) began having issues with the audio port for headphones. It was only when we could find a certain "sweet spot" that she could hear clearly without static, if she could find sound at all. Headphones and earbuds are a must for devices in our home and automobiles.
After pricing a replacement for the device, I googled for a possible solution for the problem and found the repair video at www.ifixit.com with the list of tools needed and the required part for the device.
The repair was successful, and the Kindle has returned to full functionality thanks to the service provided by www.ifixit.com. The most difficulty part was in removing the cover as was expected from viewing the video. There were no surprises. It was just as the video instructed it would be.
The personal satisfaction from successfully completing this repair was as rewarding as the economic savings from not having to replace the device. I have already begun sharing my experience with family and friends and recommend www.ifixit.com to anyone viewing this review.
