I only have a problem once every 15 -20 times or less.
also could try a little pressure from one direction on the cable,
don't want to keep moving it, it can take a few secs to start charging again
don't want too much pressure or you will make it worse.
Okay many thanks for the reply sd_shadow - I'll have to wait with that
I took the back off (first time I've done that) and wanted to see if anything was clearly loose - but I found I don't have a screwdriver that small to remove the board - so will have to buy a screwdriver tomorrow (frustrating) - and don't want to put it back together until I have checked for possible loose things.
However, I don't think that todays stopping charging while on USB/computer is perhaps that important (but I am a novice so??). The other day I did try removing charger cable and replugging, when it did not seem to be charging, and afterwards I saw it was charging, but still going really slow.
As I also noted in my ealier Post I saw that the Kindle On light went out briefly and came back on while charging now and again (on USB/computer today went out and stayed out) - I don't know if this is a usual happening while charging - or if this is some indictaion to a certain direction (loose something or battery)?
Would be great if someone knew this!?!
I don't have enough expereince to know this!
I am a bit surprised that this problem has suddenly popped up - I take very good care of my KF - and it is always protected in a cover, and I am very careful when charging it - don't move it about/Charge it fully/etc. I mostly only use it to read ebooks the last months and switch it on maybe 1 or 2 times a day, and not for that long
I can't help wondering if it could be the Stock Jelly Bean 4.2.2_r1 causing this problem??
