I have a kindle fire 1st generation and just recently bought a kindle fire HDX, my question is: can I de-register my 1st kindle from my account without affecting the content on my new kindle?

AmberRose - Yes. Deregistering a Kindle from your account doesn't affect any of the other Kindles registered to your account.

Wait until you have used the HDX awhile. I have had Wi-Fi issues and at times used my old fire. I am not the only one who had Wi-Fi issues. There are a couple ongoing discussions here. I hope you have zero problems.

I've never had a any problems at all connecting my HDX to wi-fi. Ever.

Thank you. I can't really use my old kindle anymore because the charge port doesn't connect to the charger very well anymore. I was going to give it to my daughter to use but I don't think it's worth the aggravation I get from trying to charge it.

AmberRose: You can probably get the old Fire fixed. Read on.

Some 1st Gen Fires had a known issue with the charging port becoming loose.

Any cell phone repair or computer repair shop should be able to help you. If the USB port is not damaged (only loose), all they have to do is open the Fire and re-solder the USB port. It's a repair that should cost around $40. I would recommend taking it to a shop that specializes in this type of repair and not a store such as Best Buy. They generally have no clue about Kindles.

There are also people offering this type of repair service on eBay for around $25-$35 dollars. Just search for "Kindle Fire repair".

Here are the eBay auctions for repair services that are getting good reviews for repairing Kindles.

Here are some YouTube videos of people doing their own repairs:

So what? There have been complaints about the wi-fi in older models as well. That does not mean that you will have a problem.
