I don't think its your charger. The charger port can get loose after time. This is a known issue with Kindle fire 1st generations. Kindle fire 2nd generations have issues with the battery itself. But the issue with the Kindle fire 1st generation is not the ac adapter. The micro usb port attached to the kindle breaks or becomes loose. Bad soldering is the issue.

My Kindle fire won't move past the start up "kindle fire" screen. what is wrong and how do I fix it?


Hello

Reset the Device:
If your Kindle Fire won't move, this doesn't necessarily mean that it's "broken" or has a major problem. The Kindle Fire has a tendency to become "stuck," meaning that it looks like it's "off" when it's actually "on" but it will not work properly because it's locked up. To unlock the Kindle Fire, do a reset by holding down the power button for 20 seconds or more. Then turn the device back on by hitting the power button again. If this doesn't work the first time, try holding the button down for 30 seconds or more. Most of the time, this will be all you have to do to get the Kindle Fire up and working again.

Charge It:
If resetting doesn't work, it's possible that your battery is dead. Try plugging the Kindle Fire into the charger and wait about 15 minutes before trying to turn it on again. If the device refuses to start up, try resetting it again.
If it still won't move, it's possible that you have a dead charging cable. Alas, the cables that come with the Kindle Fire are not known for their longevity. Try charging the tablet with another cord that has a Micro USB connection and see if the device responds. There's no guarantee that the charging cord from your smartphone will work with the Kindle Fire, but it's worth a try. If you get a bit of a charge, then you'll know that your Kindle Fire needs a new charging cable.

Try a Different Power Source:
if the charging cable appears to be working but the tablet still won't move, try plugging it into a different power outlet or the USB port on your computer.
If all of these troubleshooting tips fail, your Kindle Fire may have a hardware problem that requires professional help.

Kindle fire


Defective battery, if the battery will not take a charge the AC adapter will not run the tablet (not enough power) by its lonesome.

I charged my kindle, but can't get it to turn on


According to Love My Kindle Fire, nearly every Kindle owner will, at some point, need to learn how to "reset" their machine.
"When I hear (or read) these words from those who are experiencing a problem with their Kindle Fire it usually ends with something like, "turn on", "charge", or "work".

If suddenly your Kindle Fire won't work, then its most likely locked up. However, sometimes when it locks up, you can't tell because the screen goes dark (either gray or black). It just looks like it's off when in fact it is already one. cause the screen goes dark, either gray or black. It just looks like it's off when in fact your Kindle Fire is on but is stuck. When an electronic device locks up or freezes usually resetting it fixes the problem. Resetting your Kindle Fire is actually really easy, just hold down the power button for at least 20 seconds. .If your Kindle Fire won't turn on it's possible the battery went dead (if it was left "on" too long).
Plug in the power charger and wait about 15 minutes to make sure it gets enough charge, and then try turning it on again.
If it still won't turn on, try to reset the Kindle Fire again to be sure it's powered off.
If it still won't work, try someone else's charger, in case yours died.

How long should a kindle fire hd be charged


If you use the charger that came with your kindle fire, you can rest knowing that it will not overcharge by leaving it plugged in too long. Usually 4 to 6 hours should fully charge it though.

Kindle won't hold the plug to charge anymore. I have tried differenct chargers, they don't work.


Once the internal connector of the tablet is broken (which is what you are describing), there is no hope but to find someone willing to replace or repair the connection. The device was not designed to be repaired and nobody has been specificly trained to do that repair except the fellow in China who works on the production line doing that exact task on production "fallouts". There may be an "old school" electronics technician somewhere who could do the job but very tough to find one. It will be cheaper and easier to buy a new tablet.

Won t turn on


Have you held the button in for ten seconds? Are you pushing it in correctly? Did you charge it? If the battery goes down it will not come on. Plug in the charger for awhile then try turning it on. If you spilled something on it you might have a problem. So many things we dont know. Try the charger first.
