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 was going to suggest just picking up a new one but it appears Amazon quit selling the keyboard model.

Here is a step by step for replacement.
...and a source for the screen.
If you don't want to do sub-models at least do the new equipment...I'm just sayin'
Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth. That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

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.
