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.

@Dilip - My power button isn't working. It doesn't flash green even though the kindle is full charged. Can this be fixed?

hi having trouble getting to recharge USB cable doesn't seem to be making a connection. Which part is this incorporated in or is there an easy way to fix it.

Thanks for the video, mine didn't start because the case button didn't reach the board button, so i had to add a little piece of paper between case and board to make it work again.

Home button does not work. Any suggestions on which part to organise or whether I can troubleshoot without too much hassle?

@Mountain Mama - it sounds like you may need to. The button may be bad or disconnected.

I put in a new battery and ever since then, my Kindle Touch 5 button won't work. I've taken the battery out twice and waited a few minutes, then reinstalled. No luck. Will disassembling fix this problem? The only way I can get out of sleep mode is to plug it I not my computer for a few minutes, eject, then it works until it goes back into sleep mode again and I have to start all over with the computer. If this will work, I'm ready to try it but wanted to check with you guys first.

Just so people know, the power button is part of display, not motherboard, and seems to be sealed. After I realized I had ordered the wrong part I sprayed contact cleaner into the button as best I could and reassembled. It's working but not well. Looks like a new Kindle is my only option since display is out of stock. BTW a reassembly video would be very helpful.

@kuechler - just follow along until you can take the battery out, then just go backwards from there. No need for a full disassembly.

Do I have to disassemble the entire Kindle to replace the battery?

I just repaired my Kindle D01200 (suitcase fell on the screen). Used this video for the take apart and just reversed the steps to put it back once I got the replacement, but it works great now. Thanks!

Power button stopped working on the unit, opened the device made sure there is no issue with residue on the contact points of the cable connected on the screen assembly to 4 points onto the motherboard. Screwed everything back together and the button worked perfectly again. Perhaps bad assemble in factory?

I replaced my screen with this video, buying their 2nd hand one. It works!!! The condition and shipping is superb and the video is very good as well. I recommend you to take the right screwdriver (so not ph0 it) and to be very carefull when removing the frame cause at the top and bottom they are little extensions that attach it to the rest of the case, they break easily.
