The screen needs to be replaced and you have to fully disassemble it to do that. You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party Amazon Kindle repair service.

My connecter on my ereader is loss, and will not charge, it's a Kindle. What can I do?

Do you mean you no longer have the cord or the connection either the cord or kindle is damaged?
If it's a bad cord most any USB cord will fit it. Then either get an adapter to plug into wall or just plug into the USB port on your computer. If you've damaged the port on the Kindle itself contact customer service for help.

Why is half of my kindle fire hd sreen is blank the other half is fine?

If 1/2 of a viewing screen is blank; it generally means the LCD Circuit was damaged. This can happen from a blow to the back or front of the screen when in operation; water damage, a sudden surge of electricity; or many other conditions. Once a screen has been shorted out in that fashion, it can no longer function. It is not repairable as it stands and only a Replacement Screen and circuit board can make your system operate again. Usually, the cost is more than a new unit, thus most individuals simply buy a new unit.

I have a amazon kindle, and I stepped on it, the screen is not snapped but it looks like it, it is something on the inside, I heard a snap but the screen is NOT snapped, do you think it can be fixed?


Because of the type of screen (e-ink) I recommend you to contact Kindle support to get it repaired, this type of screen has an electronic layer, so 'm pretty sure the screen got damaged.

My Kindle has a dark line coming from the top of the screen and extends about 1 1/2 inches down the screen. What can I do?

I'm afraid this usually means your screen is cracked. You can contact amazon customer support and they may replace it or you will have to but a new kindle

Kindle DX screen cracked

Amazon is aware that there is a problem with fragility of the screens on the Kindles. At first, they were getting a LOT of criticism for stonewalling on this issue, then they turned around 180 degrees and decided "the customer is right." If you email customer support through the Amazon website, they may offer to replace your entire unit for free (they did for me). They ship you a new Kindle, and you use the packaging and enclosed label to send the broken unit back so they can "study it and see what went wrong." If you have personal documents (e.g. PDF files) you'll need to store them on your computer before sending the unit back. For books bought through Amazon, though, they will automatically download them to your new Kindle when you register it.
