    Most People Told Me To Go To Amazon And Talk To Customer Support For A Replacement. My Warranty Isn't Up ;)

    I'm sending mine in for a replacement but I didn't tell them it was rooted. I have no way to unroot it though since the battery is dead along with the Usb so I don't have any way to charge it.

    Seems that quite a few people have had issue with the KF not charging, at least the 1st gen. If you were fortunate enough to encounter the issue during your warranty you're lucky. I unfortunately was not.

    My daughters Kindle Fire (2nd Generation) doesn't charge with any android charger. I can literally charge my phones around the house with numerous chargers but the Kindle won't charge with any except the charger it comes with.

    Failure of the usb/charging port is common enough that, at the time I'm writing this there are at least two repair services listed on eBay and new ports. UTube has several "How too." for those game to try the resolder themselves. My Fire is having a new port put in right now. I'll post again when I've had it back for a few days.
