Intermittent USB Power Port - Common Problem
Looks like my wife's Kindle Fire has helped us join the ever-increasing club of owners that are having issues with the USB power port. We're having to wiggle the plug ''just right," until we see that it's actually charging. Sometimes that works... sometimes it doesn't. Doing a Google search returns a lot of people having the same issue, but other than teardowns, no one is saying that this is fixable in any other way than replacing the entire motherboard.
I would love for this site to focus on this component to see if it's prone to coming loose or if it's the likely cause of an intermittent connection.
Is there any chance someone could take a look and possibly help a whole lot of people with one assessment ?
