Having trouble reading in the dark? Replace the display's LED lights if the lighting on your Kindle is uneven or absent.

  1. Using a spudger or plastic opening tool, gently pry the bezel from the screen. It is easier to start in the corners and work your way around the bezel.

    • Do not insert the spudger too far under the bezel; it could easily damage the screen.

    • Remove the eleven 3.0 mm Phillips screws surrounding the midframe.

    • At the top of the display, a strip of black tape covers one screw.

    • Lift the midframe out of the case.

    • If the midframe is stuck, slide it to the left first, and then lift it out.

    • Turn over the midframe to locate the battery.

    • Remove the three Phillips 3.0 mm screws securing the battery to the midframe.

    • Gently lift the battery from the bottom, and slide it out of the midframe.

    • With the case and battery removed from the midframe, begin removing all cables attached to the motherboard.

    • Place the device so the midframe's backside faces up. Start with the cable on the bottom left corner.

    • Use a spudger to lift up the white locking cable tensioner and slide the flex cable out.

    • Proceed counterclockwise to the next cable and repeat. Small flex cable on the bottom won't need cable tensioner lifted, just carefully pull out.

    • Remove the white flex cable by gently lifting the yellow plastic connector.

    • Remove the yellow anti-static tape from the display ribbon cable connector.

    • Use a spudger to lift up and disconnect the cable tensioner.

    • Use a Philips screwdriver to remove the seven 3.0 mm Phillips screws securing the motherboard:

      • Three silver screws with silver washers

      • Two silver screws with no washers

      • One black screw with a golden washer

      • One black screw with a square washer

    • Remove the motherboard.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the white strip of tape that covers the LED lights.

    • Use a spudger to gently remove the plastic screen from the display.

    • The plastic screen is held on by a thick layer of glue. Be patient when lifting the screen to avoid bending or breaking the thin plastic.

    • Once the outer screen is removed from the Kindle, gently use your fingers to pull off the LED lights.

Hello to you! Your guide helped me to understand what happened with my kindle. I've got a scratch on the screen but it seems not very deep; the scratch is on a plastic screen, mentioned on the 12-th step. Is it possible to replace this screen with the same one or simple screen protector can do? Thank you.

Can the LEDs simply be removed using this method? I think they are giving me a headache, even on the lowest setting...

Best way is to jailbreak the kindle and use KO reader. In that you can switch off the lights completely. This is a software hack but then you do not need to open the paperweight at all

Is it possible to replace the LEDs with warm white or even yellow (no blue light at all)?

Rob Noble - Yanıt

i'd also like to replace the LEDs with a warmer light -- but I wonder foremost: can I really detach and reattach the plastic (as it is glued onto the display?) without destroying the SMOOTH and EVEN lighting when I reattach it?
