I purchased 2 fire 10” tablets for my kids last Christmas. Since then I have received 4 refurbished ones and every single one of them have the same problem. The charging port comes loose! I do not let the kids charge them so I know they had not been yanked on. Before these we had two 7” fires. Same thing. I just don’t understand. Am I the only one having this issue? Now I can’t even get them to come on. Help!!
" I bought these for my children's Amazon Fire tablets. One of the issues I had with the last batch of tablets my kids had is that even a new micro-usb cable would no longer secure in the port due to repeated insertions and removals by kids who are not gentle. "
I've had three Fires and 7 Kindles and have had no port issues with any of them.
