My kindle does charge up but its all according how yoy hook up charger to the port.Some how the charger needs to be in a certain position why after awhile i cant just put in the port to charge correct

I have an amazon fast chasrger I got from Best Buy. I also a Kindle Fire 2.My original fire quit charging.I got this kindle 2 from Amazon it charged fine until gradually I have to put the charging end in the port from an angle.As long as I see thecharge show up on the screen and hold the button to shut down the kindle charges up well.My charger isn't failingg to charge but it gets harder to find the proper location to show the charge will hold.The port may have moved because it does not show on the screen it is ready to shut down for charging.What was once simple straight connection from charger to port has to go in from angle.My kindle 1 and 2 worked great up to awhile why does it seem the port moves after awhile?

I am asking if there is anything I can do to charge my Kindle...perhaps you can recommend the best car and electric chargers.


Hi Kathleen -

The Kindles I've seen all recharge off a standard USB type charger or from the USB port of a PC / Mac. The fastest charge will come from a 5VDC / 2.1 amp USB charge port on an AC (home) or DC (car) charger. There are some expensive types with "Quick Charge" or "Rapid Charge" technology that your Kindle will not be able to make use of - so skip those and save your money for the 5VDC / 2.1 amp USB types.

I have connected the USB cable to the computer and the kindle and a battery picture is showing as almost empty and it does not seem to be indicating that it is charging.


Try charging it with another charger with the same USB Plug, such as your Kindle charger. Charging from a computer can take a long time, due to the limited power available from the USB port. This will be the definitive test to ensure the Kindle will charge.

Why wont my kindle hd charge?


It could be the charger itself. Try taking the USB cable out of the charger and plug it into your computer, then plug in the Kindle. Your computer's USB port should be able to charge it. If it still doesn't charge, you might have a bigger issue with the tablet itself.

WHAT is one to do if the charger port is broken and WHAT is the port next to the charger port is that another type of charger port?


First of all, the port next to the charging port is a mini HDMI port for connecting your Kindle to a TV. As far as your broken charging port, you can either send it out for repair or repair it yours self. Check out this link to youtube for repairing the port. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWFMCIdZx2w You can find a replacement port at an electronics store like Radio Shack.

My kindle is not charging


Is the device new or still under warranty? Is return to the store (RMA--"Return Merchandise Authorization"--through an online vendor) still possible? Extended warranty?

Is the charger (and outlet) OK? If you may attempt to use USB current from your PC/Laptop/etc., is that port workable and powered? Have you attempted an alternate method of charging? Is syncing then possible?

Chargers are not invulnerable--rarely, they sometimes overheat and die. After all, they're fabricated PRC items too--thus, even they may prove defective. (They're far less complex than a Kindle or phone, though--defective chargers thus prove quite rare.)

Chargers can't last indefinitely or through overly heavy use, either. (Chargers do tend to last longer than devices--failure proves quite rare!) Is the charger unusually hot after plug-in? (Such failure could prove a great danger to electronic devices. Very rarely, even fire or sparking is possible.) Is charger connection at the wall OK? (Is the outlet overloaded?)

Is it a "block" charger?: These may be replaced easily. Just get the connector and the Volts correct--with sufficient amperage (current). You don't need even to obtain the same brand and model as OEM--that which came originally with your charger. Online, amazon, Radio Shack, etc. may prove very helpful for such purposes.

Does the connector have sufficiently good contact through your Kindle's circuitry to its batteries? (Is the connection overly loose? Often, this occurs over time.)

Are you certain that the charging cable is OK? Does the connector in the Kindle need "doctoring" with a small tool, somehow? If the batteries are dead, it's likely possible to replace them.

It's possible that the device simply is dead (shorted-out)--power surge or fluctuation certainly are possible and likely culprits.

An extremely remote possibility is that the CPU or other key chipset is dead--even those prove useful for limited numbers of cycles. (Failure then implies quite extreme usage! Probably not!) It's not immortal!

What do ido to make my kindleD00901 operational SCRREN showing critical battery


The nice thing is, that the Kindle/Amazon charger (Ac adapter) is clearly marked as being an Amazon/Kindle charger.

So, here's what you do, perform the hard reset of the Kindle (slide and hold the power switch over to 20+seconds; count slowly; release, then connect to your Amazon/Kindle AC adapter. Then leave it connected for 30+minutes; and should the battery charge, the Kindle screen will return to normal.

Alternate step to try is; if you don't have the actual Kindle AC adapter, you will need to try to charge via the USB port from your computer.

The trick here is, that the Kindle takes longer to charge direct from a computer USB port, and the computer has to be left on the whole time and CANNOT go to sleep, as the power to the USB ports might be turned off.
Also, it's best if you connect to a "powered" USB hub, or the USB ports found at the back of a computer tower (not the front USB ports as most of the time, the front ports do not supply enough power for Kindle charging).

Kindle will not charge from out let or computer


Please clarify: what charger did you use to connect to an outlet? The Kindle 3 comes with an USB cable to charge from a PC or Mac computer and no charger outside for many countries outside the US (for other countries an external charger is available from Amazon as optional accessory). Use of a different charger (e.g. mobile phone charger with USB connector) is not supported, not recommended and may fry your Kindle if a wrong voltage is hooked to it.

Things you can try:
  1. Use a different outlet to charge the Kindle.
  2. If you use the supplied USB cable to connect to a PC, make sure its firmly seated on both ends. Connect to a powered USB port directly on your computer. Some external USB hubs do not come with a separate power supply (external power supply is mandatory for an USB 2.0 hub, some cheap models are sold without one anyway) and are not suited to charge anything. Just to make sure, disconnect any other USB device except mouse / keyboard to check if the USB port in use is not burdened by too much drain.
  3. The Kindle power LED should glow amber while charging and green if the device is fully charged.
  4. Give the Kindle a reset pressing Home --> Menu --> Settings --> Menu and select "Restart." If the charge light is on but the device is still not charging, contact Amazon customer service.
  5. If the charge light does not light, the AC adapter or cable needs to be replaced.
  6. Contact Amazon customer support for any warranty issues.
