Dropped my Kindle for the nth time, and this time it didn't recover. Using this video, I removed the battery and was able to figure out that the battery wasn't the problem. Deduced that it was a problem with the power button, so followed the steps to get down to the power button, wiggled the frame around a little, and now it's working! Thanks! Didn't have to remove the 3G assembly or the battery for my particular fix.

I dropped my kindle and neither the power or home buttons would work. I went through disassembling my kindle through the various stages, cleaning connections along the way. Nothing seemed to work until I unplugged the display cable from the motherboard (which I forgot to plug back in until I got to the last step of re-assembling). Unfortunately, that step removed all the categories and folders I had created for my massive library, but I suppose that's a small price to pay for a functioning Kindle. Thanks for the video tutorial! A+

@NerdBoy - do you have to buy a new motherboard and display after you separate the wires?

Non-functional power button (USB ok). Followed your disassembly instructions, cleaned it all, reassembled. One fully functional Kindle. Thank you!!!!

Thanks, this gives me the confidence to fix the 'old girl' and get another 250 books out of her. She has performed well here in tropical Australia.I'll let you know how it went when the new screen is in.
