Last night I discovered that my precious Amazon Kindle (3rd generation) which has been with me for at least a year — and that after I claimed warranty for the first unit I had from the company — has broken its screen display again. Much like what I had faced before with the first unit that I had, the screensaver is frozen and no amount of resetting the device or powering it up will solve the issue. So I told the vendor I bought it from about it and he suggested that I might as well ditch it and get a new one. I might get a new unit since I was right in the middle of Clash of Kings and I don’t want to leave it, but I am unwilling to ditch my faithful e-book reader. So I looked around and I found out that the screen has been successfully repaired before by individual people, as in the video above.
I am now looking at several repair services online that are offering to repair the Kindle screen (money is no object in this instance!). Unfortunately most of them are based in the UK, which means I have to wait for them to repair and send back the device to me, which will take weeks until then. Oh well, no pain is no gain…this time around, I will look for the right Amazon Kindle screen repair company to do the job for me and get back my precious safe and sound.
