Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Your Kindle, if it has a loose charging port or loose USB port (same thing, on most models), will need repair work. Work of a simple sort, but best done rapidly and cheaply by a specialist.

Would you prefer to have the work done locally, or to send it off, or either one? if 'locally', please tell me your zip code and I will provide you with a list, and contact info/addresses, for local repairers of this sort of problem, to contact.
