Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The smart thing is to send it back and have them do it.  One of my fellow techs took his apart and since some of the connections are so short, once he took it apart, he was unable to put it back correctly.  So be wise and send it back to the factory and have them remove it.  It should still be under warranty.

    You possibly don't.   Your best chance is to take it to a small appliance repair shop and have them do it.   If you're determined to do it yourself, and you aren't comfortably familiar with opening devices like it and successfully closing them again, then be prepared to have a broken case or other part when you're finished.   There are internet sites that discuss Kindle repairs. Google searches bring them up for you. And at least one YouTube video can be found that shows a repair sequence. You should definitely watch any videos a couple times before doing anything.   Once the case is successfully opened and the socket is clearly visible, you should be able to maneuver the plug out.   Tom
