Device: Kindle Fire
Symptoms: Will not charge.
Repair: Replace usb receptacle
The owner purchased this Kindle off of Craigslist, supposedly in perfect condition. Lasted a couple weeks then quit charging. Someone had previously attempted to re-attache the charging port, so this is an example of how a repair shouldn't and should look.
Way too much flux and the solder is dull. When done correctly, solder joints should be bright and shiny.
Pads & mounting area cleaned and prepped.
New usb receptacle with bright and shiny solder joints.
Complete and charging.
