Why won't my Kindle Fire HD6 charge past 1%?

My daughter's Kindle Fire HD6 has suddenly stopped charging. As long as the tablet is plugged in, it will power on and is fully functional. However, the battery indicator at the upper right corner never shows the charging "lightening bolt" and the battery percentage will never go past 1%. When you unplug the tablet, the battery quickly drops to 0% and the tablet shuts down.

"It simply works! Charging upright does the trick, no matter how insane that sounds in reality it works!

I can confirm that there's no lose charging port, nor any other lose parts (like when shaking the device it's all firm & tight) and there where no issues at all with the device… it's unbelievable and unheard of, charging upright is at least a workaround!

I would love to hear a scientifical explanation for this specific problem because it's definitely not missing air circulation like mentioned before, it's also not a lose part from what I can tell!

It's so freaking insane… and thanks to that person posting this here first, it reduced the time I had to mess with this to 20 minutes, search the problem (fire 7 & 1%) brings this thread up!

I even signed up here just to say ‘thanks’ and confirm the “fix""!"

Your kindle either has a battery issue or a logic board issue

Same here. 100% repro. Will not charge, and then will charge if I stand it up. Amazon must be aware of the issue. Why won't they post anything about it? At least notify people so their devices don't go into the landfill because people think the battery is defective.
