My DX will not connect to WiFi, The wifi icon is displayed but the device will not connect to my Amazon acct. Also I was able to connect to the kindle store buy a book yet the book was never delivered to my device. Any Idea what the issue could be

I have not used my Kindle DX for some time. The battery is completely discharged. I used the wall outlet charger but it will not take a charge, The yellow charging light appears for 1 minute, then it is gone. What can I do to recharge it again. Thanks

@JUAN - You most likely will need to replace the select button. We sell them in the parts list to the right.

I am having troble locating the cover retention clips on Kindle DX as well. Is it possible to measure the offset to the clip from each side so that we dont have to fish for it?

@Jim - it unfortunately takes some practice and is more about the feel of where the clips are to know where to use the flat tool to pop them free. Just don't use too much force to make it permanently warp the casing.

I am having a lot of trouble with the first step. I just need to replace the battery, but it seems that the antenna cover is a very tight fit. I have tried plastic spreader tools, and a putty knife like you use. Any tips on how to feel for the clips, how much pressure to apply?
