I have combo of problems w/a Fire HDX 8.9 & would be grateful for help/advice (2nd gen, I think-it was a gift & we have no receipt, etc.). After a few mos, it bricked for 6 mos—Amazon ‘help’ told me only that it was dead if holding both buttons didn’t turn it on. But I kept trying to turn it on by holding power & sound buttons, & one day it worked. It was good 4 awhile…tho varied but fast power drain…then 2 mos ago— if I charged it in AM, & it sat (plugged or not) it would not turn on or turn on w/only the red low battery warning on screen. After charging, either with Amazon cable & ac charger OR an Anker 2 plug charger & Anker micro USB cable (rated highly on, er. Amazon), if I didn’t use it quick, the next day it’d be dead or near dead again. This continues to happen now, & I need to either replace it or upgrade. Don’t have $ for iPad but also am wary of spending even $50-60 on new one, even with ext warranty.
Anyone have any ideas? If you’ve had similar prob, were you ever able to fix? Thx in adv.
