    There are a nuber of sources for Kindle 3 eink screens and instructions for replacement. It is a simple thing to do but not worth doing. A screen is approx $60 USD plus shipping. My kindle cost $79. Go figure.

Hello,

unfortunately, there is no screen replacement for your broken kindle 3 screen. The only option you have is to remove the screen of a dead kindle 3 that is no longer being used. To get a dead Kindle 3, you might have to visit where kindle 3 is repaired within your vicinity.

Lastly, you might end up getting another kindle 3. If there was a screen replacement for sale, it would have been much easier, but unfortunately, there isn't.

Good luck.

    My daughter somehow cracked her Kindle 3 while in the car the other day. It was only 32 days old. I contacted Amazon and told them I wasn't sure how it broke, that it was in her purse in a case yet was broken by the time we got home. They immediately sent me a new one with no questions what-so-ever. Recived it today less than 24 hours after calling. All I have to do is ship the old one back within 30 days. THANK YOU AMAZON!

A broken Kindle 3 (keyboard) screen cannot be repaired; it must be replaced. You can buy replacement K3 screens on the Internet at places like eBay, but you must be able to.perform the repair! It is not very difficult to replace K3 screen, but you must have a small Phillips screwdriver and be prepared to open the Kindle and remove 19 tiny screws and a ribbon cable to accomplish the task!

How do I fix my broken screen on my Kindle fire hdx with a frozen screen.


CONTACT AMAZON CUSTOMER SERVICE. I hope its under a warranty/service contract. Replacing a broken screen off coverage is expensive. If the screen under it is frozen its likely the dropping caused more problems than just the broken screen.

Broken Screen on my Kindle fire hd


Working inside a tablet is NOT for the feinthearted or non-technician. Best bet is the tech support / RMA route. Most of the cost of the tablet is the screen, so this means $$$. Since Amazon actually sells their tablets below cost (they make all their money on customer downloads), you would be likely paying more than the trouble is worth for the parts and STILL not have a working tablet.

The screen on my Amazon Kindle 3G is partially white and partially black with white lines running through it. It has been charged but does not respond when I turn it on. Do you think it is worth fix


It's broken :(

There are companies who will replace the screen for about the same price as a brand new Kindle BASIC. personally I would suggest:
- buy a new Kindle BASIC for 59gbp;
or
- download any of the FREE kindle apps and just finish your library reads for free whilst you look around for a replacement.

If you want a TABLET rather than a eReader remember ANY tablet will download the free Kindle app so you can read your books on a Fire or a ASUS or a NEXUS or a iPad or anything really :)

Good luck.

Gen 3, half page of screen saver - half page book. can move from page to page but screen saver is still partially there.


Dear Liz,

If your Kindle presents some horizontal or vertical lines in part of the screen, or even in full screen, and if the image is kind of "vaporous", not bright, it might have happened that you have a broken display (maybe due to pressure exerted on it, by something inside your bag, backpack or wherever you carry your Kindle). Please check this link to see if your problem is similar to those portrayed in the following images:

https://www.google.com.br/search?q=broken+kindle+display+image&client=opera&hs=72G&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=hsZ5Upr2PMrqkAez1YHwCw&ved=0CCgQsAQ&biw=1280&bih=730

If that is the case, you can buy a new display from Ali Express and replace it following the disassembling instructions shown at

http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repairing+Kindle+3+%28screen+replacement%29/11938

If you do not want to do it on your own, take the display and the instructions provided in the link indicated to a repair technician that you trust and have it replaced (I had the same problem with my kindle 3 and replaced its display in less than an hour - it is not that difficult...).

Hope you may find this information helpful!

Although you posted the problem in the area for the Kindle 1, by the model number it seems that you have a Kindle 3 (3rd generation) or Kindle Keyboard. The display for this model is the one shown in the link below:

Kindle 3 wi-fi - no response when switched on - battery has been charged and grren light comes on but screen graphic remains. I've tried holding switch on for 15+ seconds.


If the 15 second reset does not work, I would suggest contacting amazon. They can connect to your device and see if there is something wrong with your actual kindle. If there is something wrong they are usually pretty good about replacing broken kindled :)

New kindle 3 . screen has frozen.


Amazon might help you with this because it is so new. However if you dropped it (etc.) and if HTC doesn't replace it for you, You can get the part at Kindle 3 Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at Kindle Repair Guide.

Sounds like you're screen is broken. If you have text at the bottom but not at the top and lines on the screen, it's definitely broken. Amazon2_bing.gif should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.
