Got my Fire in early Dec from a seller based in China. (The first one I bought from another China seller didn't ship it after 4 weeks as he claimed it was out of stock & I got my money back through PayPal after I lodged a complaint). My serial no. ends in 9038, build no. 20120907.tm, a late production unit but still experienced the non-responsive touchscreen issue after about a week of use. Had no choice but to send it back to the seller who thankfully was quite responsive.

Got it back after about 3 weeks(came fully charged but without the original box & warranty card that I had sent it back with). The following were noticed -

1) Android v.4.0.4, Kernel version 3.0.8-gc0699a5, visual.zhang@droid05-sz #6, SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 11 15:22:53 CST 2012. Build number 20121211tm
2) the clicking sound when tablet is not in use is no longer heard (good!)
3) other common reported issue of tablet suddenly shutting down when battery level was around 20% happened once (not good!)
4) so far have charged it twice using a Belkin Conserve Valet charging station - http://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F7C008 (Think the output is 1A.) No issues with touchscreen so far *touchwood!* (great!)

this is probably the wrong place to ask ...

My ainol fire was dropped , now has a broken glass screen. Ive found a replacement on ########### for $40 but does any one know of a cheaper fix?

Hi All,

 

I dont know if this issue has been resolved but i have an ainol fire which i used for a good 5/6months before the following happened. When the tablet is turned on the screen is black with brightness near the panel so i know it's turning on but the android and ainol fire logo is extremely faint you can barely see it. We the start screen appears the same issue, i can barely see the time on the front screen. I can hear the swipe noise when i swipe accross but then it fades very very slowly into my home screen of which only about 50% of the screen is visible and even that is extremely faint with lines. When i attempt to open anything it takes a long time to do so. I was wondering would this be a cable connection problem? along with a firmware update being needed?

Any help would be much appreciated, and if someone could point me in the right direction as to the firmware as well please.

 

Many Thanks,
S

Hey,

i have the same problem. the only solution is probably to get another display.
