Good Morning, I replaced my logic board on my kindle 3rd gen who was originally a 3G model with a logic board for a WiFi model. I can connect to the Wifi but it doesn't open any site. it says that the kindle is unable to connect. I checked all the connectors and it's all properly connected, any suggestions on how to solve this?

My right page turn is not working properly anymore. It either doesn't respond at all, or flips 2-4 pages at once. The right side works fine, so I think it's just been worn out... what part would I need to replace to fix it?

I don't know whether it's a battery problem or a screen prob! Screen is striped, like when a printer is running low on ink. Charged it and the light was yellow for a while then turned green. Power on, green light comes on for a few seconds then goes off. Screen never responds. Tried resets, green light blinks then shuts off. Took battery out for a few minutes and put back in, no change. It had been sitting idle for several months unused. Been in a safe place so it hasn't sustained damage. What do ya think?

@Jonathan tran - Hi Jon, Did you ever find out what was wrong with your kindle 3? I am having similar keyboard issues with mine and would love to replace a part, if simple enough. When I hit the "right" arrow key on the keyboard (in the 4 direction square) it registers as "enter" instead.

My kindle is frozen om the Ralph Ellison screen. It gives me a yellow light as its charging, but no green light when I try to power on and no green light when I try to hard reset. I have tried the battery removal and it doesn't seem to work. Do you think this would be a motherboard issue or is it something else?

Ok I had a kindle model D00901 with 3g. It's screen broke so I got a used one to replace it from amazon. They sent me the wrong color so they gave me a full refund on it and I got to keep it. Well now I realized that they also sent me one that doesn't have 3g like the one I ordered. I really don't want to order another and go through the long transfer process again. Is there anyway I can take the 3g card from my broken kindle and put it in my new wifi one? Please let me know asap so I know if I have to order it all over again.

I replaced the mother board and now my kindle is no longer frozen. Yay! But, now the screen has tiny horizontal lines that are evenly spaced all the way down the screen. Like a printout with low ink. Do you think I need to replace the screen? (Thanks for the video - it was really helpful. BTW, there are 12 screws that hold the mother board down - the video says 11)

My kindle 3 is frozen. The reboot does not work. It seems as if it tries to reboot itself but then gets frozen because sometimes the screen is white, sometimes it has the tree with a status bar at varying stages. I don't think it's the battery. Does it seem like a motherboard issue?

@Anna - what was the kindle doing before? It may be something else. If your old board was working better than the replacement you may want to reinstall that one and make sure it turns on. You may also want to send it to us or take it somewhere for repair so other parts can be tested.

I managed to catch my Kindle touch under a fitness machine and put a crease in the upper rt edge of the case - not the screen. The screen now has a 1.3 cm band of text that doesn't change, a 7.6 x 5.8 cm blank rectangle in the lower left, and what's left works fine. I guess that the motherboard was damaged?

I replaced my screen, which had been stepped on, using this video. It fired up perfectly the first time, but the next time I went to use it, the screen was showing lines across the screen and a cracked/spider web pattern that looks like the damage on the original.

Hi, I have a kindle 3g+wifi (model d00901) which needed a screen replacement. I followed the link for that model which brought me to this video. Following the procedure in this video is incorrect for this device and further damaged my kindle. (the removal of the speaker for my device requires an additional screw to be removed, otherwise it will tear off from the printed circuit on the back of speaker) please update your videos to include proper procedures for this model, so others will not meet the same fate!!

My kindle is in perfect state, apparently the only problem is that the motherboard is burned. I'm thinking in buying you one of those. But first I've got some questions. After replacing the motherboard,(apparently i can do it by myself) Does the kindle 3 wifi needs to reinstall some software? In the case it needs, how i can get it installed? Does it need more changes after that? Thanks a lot!!!

OK, so I first replaced the logic board, then ordered the screen and replaced it. Still no luck. The logic board does not seem to be communicating with the screen. The screen I took out did not have any visible damage. I tried the reset again too. Nothing. What is left. I have lost hope now and yet am intrigued as to what could have gone wrong. Any other thoughts?? thanks Simon

Hi, my kindle 3 is stuck on the screen saver screen. No damage or impact or sudden temperature changes, just one day... frozen screen. I have tried the hard and soft resets multiple times; disconnected the battery, waited then reconnected. There is no obvious damage to the screen. The voice guide is working, so the Kindle turns on and off and navigates pages etc just can't see any of it. I have read the other posts here, do I need a new motherboard or screen? Thanks for your help and great tips!

I failed to mention that directly after I dropped my kindle, it was blank, and after several resets, it is now sort-of limping along. At first, it kept toggling from the Home screen to the selected book, then back again. Then I'd do another reset, and it would be on the last page read, frozen. Another reset, and it would go to the 'screen-saver' screen. Very intermittent. Please help-I can't go back to normal books! Thanks. Russ

I dropped my Kindle Keyboard. Now, the spring-loaded power switch on the bottom edge is very tight, and doesn't spring back anymore. Can be moved if you push it.

It wasn't hard at all to replace the screen. This video was a great tool! However, now I'm having all kinds of problems with the keyboard and the ink showing up on the screen. I'm not sure what is wrong. Electronics are so touchy...it's like once it's open and exposed, it's never the same. It looks like I'm going to have to breakdown and order another Kindle. Electronics nowadays are made to be disposable...it's a shame.

@Kim - make sure you try holding the power switch in the on position for 20 seconds and make sure it doesn't reset. That usually fixes that, if not try plugging it into your computer. It's rarely a hardware issue, but in the end it could be either the battery or motherboard.

Kim

@Bill - none of those look right. Kindle serials typically start with a B. If you can't get the back off, you may just want to send it to us to do.

Bill

Thanks for the quick reply. If the serial # is the CMIIT ID, it starts off with:2010 The only other numbers are the FCC ID# and a IC 8960 number. There are also numbers associated with other manufacturers like ANATEL #1055 etc.

Powerbook Medic

@Bill - amazon has started adding some crazy adhesive to the battery that sits in the very middle of the back. You can have all the clips popped out and it'll still stay strong. You need a long flat tool like a putty knife to slide in there and start loosening the adhesive. As far as your model, if you can provide the first 4 of your serial number (not the model number on the back), we can check what you have.

Powerbook Medic

@carolyn - it is most likely the motherboard at this point. you can try that or you can send the kindle to us and we can run a full diagnosis on it.

Apparently there is a different version of the Kindle 3 that's in your video. My model D00901 with frozen screen - showing 67% battery power, and the green power light does come on after about 15 seconds, however it only has two access slots on the left side of the unit, and although I can get the tool into the slots, the back shows no signs of loosening up for me. The product is put together well, just not made to last. Any ideas?

This video enabled me to fix my Kindle. Without it I would never have been able to get it apart and together again. As far as assembly goes just write everything down and go in reverse. I changed a broken screen and it works fine now. Only problem I had is there are two aluminum washers that go under the battery that are not mentioned in the video. I was at a loss where they went when I removed the motherboard they fell off. I had to take my other keyboard kindle apart to find out where they went. Now I would know how to change any other components that might go out. I bought a spare batter but maybe I should have a spare motherboard too. Your magnetic screwdriver is a life saver with those tiny screws too. Thanks for all the help. I am a grateful customer.

The screen on my kindle has several lines running through it (looks like an etch-a-sketch). It is not frozen, as you can switch to different pages, but the lines continue to show up.

Wow, this is a wonderful site! I have a kindle 3 that has some sporatic symptoms. Sometimes it takes forever to charge up. Sometimes even with a full charge, I can only read for an hour or two and it quits. Lastly, quite a number of times, it simply won't start. This has been partially been solved by charging, however, sometimes I can't get it to cahrge. Finally when all else fails, I give it a good rap like people do to pack a new pack of cigarettes. Then it may turn on or at least allow me to charge it. I am more than happy to open it up. Until I saw you video I was thinking about a loose battery wire, however that doesn't seem to exist now. I have a volt meter and can check the battery voltage but not the draw down. Any ideas on what I might do? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi, I stood on my kindle and there was slight cracking noise, although there is no outward sign of damage to the screen, aside from a few lines appearing here and there, it does not react at all. Power lights react as expected on power up and on reset but no joy with either soft reset or factory reset. I presume most likely a new screen required, but is likely to be anything else?

@Shaun - just check the contacts for the battery, make sure there is no corrosion or burnt out chips or contacts. If we had it in shop, we'd check for damage on the motherboard and if none was found, the easiest check is to pop another known working battery in there and see if it fixes it. If not, then move on to the motherboard replacement.

Shaun

My Kindle 3 wifi only dropped and will not turn on or hard restart. Apart from replacing the motherboard - I assume - is there a connection or trouble area I should check before I replace?

Great guide. Well done Guys. Just replaced the front cover on my Kindle with one supplied by you. I could not have done the job withou it. I do have an issue with the battery meter display. It now just shows a question mark on the battery display and no usage. I did also damage the 3G antenna when removing the speakers. As I use mainly with wifi this may not present an issue. Can I suggest you add a comment on the video to remove the third antenna screw on 3G models.

My keyboard seems to be messed up. When pushing the "forward" or "back" page buttons, instead of turning the page, each button produces a group of odd characters (6h7v, qoj8b, 45,...) Also, some of the keys seems to be messed up as well. Would this be an issue with the midboard or the motherboard?

Excellent video - took a lot of the stress away from replacing a broken screen.

I accidentally put my knee on the back of my kindle and cracked the screen to the point of uselessness. I thought all was lost, but I brought my hopes to the internet and blindly stumbled upon this video. I found it extremely easy to understand and to follow and immediately started surgery. When I didn't notice any damage except to the screen, I ordered the part, which I also found very convenient that this site has all parts handy. A Saturday night purchase resulted in a Wednesday delivery with the most basic of shipping options. After putting the kindle back together, I am pleased to find it as new again. My only suggestion would be to have this video in the reverse to help put it all back together again.

Do you know which part failures would lead to a frozen screen. I have tried soft reset, hard reset and removing/replacing the battery to no avail. I'm trying to fix it for less than the cost of a new one.

@Philip - sorry about that. It looks like the tech misspoke.

Very nice breakdown, but there are 12, not 11 screws in the logic board and you must use a phillip's-head screwdriver, not a flat-head. Thanks.

My kindle is frozen. Could not get it to hard reset. Removed battery and put it back, still no luck. What part could be bad that needs replacement?
