Thank you so much. I ordered a new screen and used your video to replace my broken one. I am not at all handy but your instructions were easy to follow and clear. My Kindle is as good as new. I'm thrilled. Thank you.

@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?

My kindle had liquid spilled on it. I enclosed it in rice but the screen locks up after 20 minutes The search bar appears and the back button won't get rid of it. What needs to be replaced?
