I only recently resurrected my kindle, as it previously turned off straight after the 'kindle fire' screen, on boot. I somehow managed to fix this by opening the back, unplugging the battery and plugging it in again. Much to my surprise, it kicked back to life, but every since, it refuses to charge through the mains. I have performed a factory reset. The only way i am currently able to charge it is by plugging it into a USB port on my PC. I'm certain that the wires, from when I open it, are properly fixed. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Frankly I would advise contacting a qualified electrician or decide that an electrical device that works sporadically is not worth risking one's life with. Totally up to you.

Try a different plug / cable.
If no good, throw it away and start again...

So instead of asking how to fix it, you took it apart and now you're asking how to fix it because you've broken it? ha ha. :)

Anyway, if it charges via the USB but not the charger then the obvious answer is to use a different charger.
