Amazon kindle Fire stops working as soon as warranty expires Seattle Washington
I purchased a Kindle Fire in December 2011.
In April 2013 it would not charge. I contacted Amazon and they said that they had problems with this device and that they would send me a new charger. They did. This helped for a couple of months.
By July 1013, the device would not charge with the new charger.
I called Amazon and they said that the device was out of warranty and that I would have to purchase another one. This device lasted less than a year and a half before I started having problems with it. It was less than 6 months out of warranty! Apparently they manufacture devices that only work while under warranty. They offered me a new 2nd generation Kindle for $129 to replace the one I paid $199 for 18 months ago. Why would I want another shoddy device that I have to pay for?
This is really a ripoff and an example of a large manufacturer really taking advantage of consumers.
