Tip & How-To about Amazon Kindle Fire HD
If your Kindle (any version) is not charging because the USB port has gotten loose, try this...wrap a small piece of aluminum foil around your USB connector - the end that plugs into the device. Be careful not to extend the foil past the end of the connector, you don't want to damage your device. Plug the cable in to the outlet and into the Kindle port as usual, then watch the orange light come on!
Kindle charging ports get worn out over time, the foil is a great conductor and makes a solid connection. Obviously, you'll want to try a different cable first, but if that doesn't work, this is free and easy!
