    My mothers well-loved Kindle Keyboard (Kindle 3) has just started developing issues. Looking at the YouTube video, it appears to be fairly easy to replace the screen. I might as well replace the battery at the same thing. Anyone know of any good sources for screens?

    I saw that the cost of the screen was $41. I always went by the rule of thumb that if the repair was going to cost 50% or more of a new one, JUNK IT. A new basic Kindle is $69. The newest type (PaperWhite) is $119. The kybd is nice, but I don't use it that much that I could not get used to the on-screen controls.
