Hi,
my Kindle Fire is just over 1 yr old. When I try to charge, the cable connector is no longer a snug fit. I have purchase 2 additional charges, same problem. It appears to me (I have no knowledge of any computer/Kindle/Android table.) I don't know if this is even possible. Does anyone have a solution to this problem. Thanks

Your Charger Jack on the device itself is done, if its not snug, wiggly etc. The connection from the device to the jack is broken, and needs to be reconnected.id recommend taking it in and having a expert draw up a cost and take a good look at it. Its a simple fix, kindles arnt that complicated. :)

Probably the charging port on the Kindle Fire has some problem then… Have you tried to charge it via USB cable with the computer? May be try some stickers to fix the position, see if it helps.

There's also a good discussion about charging issues on Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD here. See if those suggestions can help or not:

Hope that helps.

I am having the same issue with mine now. Did you get a solution. Sounds like Amazon needs to recall this or something.

Same problem here! The charger is no longer a snug fit. Amazon replaced my first kindle as it was just under a year, but now I'm having the same problem with the replacement!

I called Amazon yesterday 8/28/13 with the same issue and all I was offered was to buy a new one, This Kindle Fire works great if it only can get charged.
