Question about Amazon Kindle 1
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 shown in the images:
If that is the case, you can buy a new display from Ali Express and replace it following the disassembling instructions shown at
If you do not want to do it on your own, take the display and the instructions provided in the link indicated to a service 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...).
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:
Hope it helps!
