some how my wife's Kindle's power port was damage and I gave her mine so I put it away until I could find the right charging port' then I found one at IFIXIT.com
I made the repairs with ease And now I can charge the Kindle
the ifixit tool kit made it real easy to do the repair.
would not charge, very erratic.
Great, remove trim, removed from case, several small, small screw later removed and replaced, USB input cable assembly. Worked like a charm,
Replaced case. PS i turned 83 this past Sept. You can do it, just don't stop.
Like I said,....Just don't stop. If you love something, keep doing it.
My wife has a Kindle HDX 8.9 that wasn't charging. After a little research online, I decided try and repair it.
The repair went great. Taking apart the Kindle was the most difficult part. After opening up device I discovered the "charging assembly" was damaged on pin connector. With a very small screwdriver and tweezers I removed old assembly and broken piece of pin connector. It took some time to find part until I found ifixit.com The replacement part was identical to original and easily fit back into device. Put everything back together, charged device, and Kindle is working fine now.
I have very little experience working on electronics. With a little online guidance (and some very little tools!) I think most people could do a repair like this. My wife ordered a brand new Kindle to replace this "broken" one, for over $ 300. Now I have a Kindle of my own to use, for the repair price of about $15. THANK YOU ifixit.com!!!!
