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?

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.
