The defect is in my Kindle Fire, not in how I plugged the cable in. If it was just the cable, it would not have worked correctly without problems for the last 6 months.
I do not question your valid complaint. I am refering, in general, to so many "loose/connection/wiggle" threads posted in numerous places (not just MR). I did not intend to criticize you directly -- sorry for the poorly-worded post.
If the problem exists and persists Amazon will make it right.
