Hier wird der Austausch des Bildschirms am Kindle Paperwhite 1.Generation gezeigt.

  1. Hebele die Blende mit einem Spudger oder einem Plastiköffnungswerkzeug vorsichtig vom Bildschirm ab. Am einfachsten beginnst du in einer Ecke und lässt das Werkzeug um den Rand herum laufen.
    • Hebele die Blende mit einem Spudger oder einem Plastiköffnungswerkzeug vorsichtig vom Bildschirm ab. Am einfachsten beginnst du in einer Ecke und lässt das Werkzeug um den Rand herum laufen.

    • Setze das Werkzeug nicht zu tief ein. Du könntest sonst den Bildschirm beschädigen.

    I found it easier to start this step off with one of the Opening Picks found in the iOpener pack.

  2. Entferne elf 3,0 mm Kreuzschlitzschrauben um den Mittelrahmen.
    • Entferne elf 3,0 mm Kreuzschlitzschrauben um den Mittelrahmen.

    • Oben am Bildschirm ist eine der Schrauben durch einen schwarzen Klebestreifen verdeckt.

    On 3G version you will not have the top middle screw.

    • Hebe den Mittelrahmen aus dem Gehäuse.

    • Wenn der Mittelrahmen festhängt, dann schiebe ihn erst nach links und hebe ihn dann hoch.

    There are clips in the bottom of the case helping hold the midframe in. Lift the top of the midframe up enough to clear the black back piece and then slide up and out.

    • Drehe den Mittelrahmen herum und du siehst den Akku.

    • Entferne drei 3,0 mm Kreuzschlitzschrauben, welche den Akku am Mittelrahmen befestigen.

    • Entferne das gelbe Antistatikband vom Displaykabel.

    • Klappe den Sicherungsbügel am ZIF Anschluss des Displaykabels mit dem Spudger hoch.

    • Entferne die restlichen sieben Kreuzschlitzschrauben.

    • Hebe die Hauptplatine aus dem Mittelrahmen heraus.

    • Der Bildschirm ist am Mittelrahmen festgeklebt. Wenn dein Austauschbildschirm nicht den Mittelrahmen enthält, dann musst du den alten Bildschirm mit einem iOpener erwärmen und dann vorsichtig vom Mittelrahmen mit einem Spudger oder einer Plastikkarte abhebeln.

    We should add a link to how to separate the motherboard from the display. I used this guide and had to hunt these steps down! Other than that, my repair worked out great! Kindle Paperwhite 1. Generation Hauptplatine austauschen

A few points.

1 could be clearer as to which particular model is being used in this dis-assembly (is this the wifi version?).

2 could do with showing the removal of MB from system (not hard but incomplete without it).

3Can you either go further by demonstrating how to remove screen from mid frame and or identify a supplier of the midframe and lcd combined? This would be particularly helpful as the screen appears to be completely glued to the midframe with no obvious way to remove it.

Pete B - Antwort

It’s the wifi version. I’ve just fitted a screen to the 3G version.

Difference is that (if you look at the top of the picture in step 8), there’s a populated SIM card slot on the board, above that a modem daughter board you can unscrew, and plugged into this antenna leads that go to an antenna mounted on the top of the main frame.

Only difference in repair would be that you’d have to unscrew the modem and pop off the MMCX connector the antenna uses.

One problem I did have is that on my Kindle there seems to be an antenna-tape-thing at the top of the frame (https://youtu.be/-SEG4NDb2JY?t=58s - on frame directly above the top of the screen).

When I pried off the bezel, (in my case) this stuck to the bezel not the frame, so it ripped. Might be worth heating the top of the bezel before peeling it off - but apart from that don’t see what you could do.

Anyway, my kindle is all back together again and 3G both seem to be working - so not too worried.

Whilst this is a lovely example on how to get to the point when you remove the screen best you all be beware the the original Paperwhite (The one I took apart) screen is bonded glass to metal and is practically impossible to clean off. After a great deal of scraping I got to the point where I could fit my replacement screen. Alas all my work has been wasted so far because the replacement screen is not up to scratch. Personally, after attempting replacing the screen I'd pay the £60 to get someone else to replace it.

Flynn Gardener - Antwort

My replacement screen didn’t come with a frame, so I had to separate old screen from the frame.

I heated the screen and managed to lever it out, but edges of the screen crumbled to glass dust as I pried the screen.

Shot of contact cleaner seemed to allow me to get the crumbled glass out of the glue layer on the frame.

Pretty sure it’s not possible to remove a screen from a frame and not destroy it.

James Halliday -

Maybe you guys can help me:

I have a paperwhite 1st-gen that doesn't charge via usb anymore, but the screen is perfect. At first i wanted to replace the usb jack, buti then I found a paperwhite 2nd-gen with a defect screen.

So I decided to dissasemble both of them and assemble them to one working device. I used the 1st-gen-screen and the 2nd-gen-board. But when I switch it on and do a reset i get the error: "INVALID BATTERY: -22".

adisdurakovic - Antwort

Got the same error doing exactly the same thing as u di.

Seems that the screen is not interchangeble between the 2 versions

i have new kindle paperwhite with 300dpi screen. i have that crooked screen problem with it and i am interested is there a way for you guys to make a guide how to fix that 1-2degrees rotation that is so irritating?

Predrag - Antwort

I found this guide useful. I also found that it takes a LOT of heat to remove the screen from the midframe. When buying a new display unit, it comes with the midframe so you don't have to remove the damaged screen from the original midframe.

I ordered a display unit (including the midframe) from fixit and it was sent pretty fast. Unfortunately, it came with a scratch in the middle of the screen that is very bright when using the Kindle. Maybe, it's a result from 2 tiny screws (those holding the midframe to the back cover) that were packaged with the display unit. I guess they were overlooked when disassembling and packaging the display unit. I'm not that happy with this. Anyway, this guide is useful when replacing the screen of your Kindle.

Btw, I sketched the midframe on a piece of cardboard and taped the screws and things onto it, to be sure to have them on the proper position when reassembling it.

I just used these instructions to replace the screen on my Gen 2 Kindle Paperwhite Wifi. Thanks for the help. It's nice to spend $40 to fix the Kindle instead of buying a new one.

Tim Diller - Antwort

Tim - Can you verify that you installed this in a Gen 2 Paperwhite? The iFixit part listing says it is for first gen. I'm looking at repairing my mother's 2nd gen and want to be sure this screen will work. Thanks.

Bob Boehmer -

Bob, my wife is happily using her Gen 2 Kindle Paperwhite Wifi repaired with this method.

Tim Diller -

Good to hear you repaired it! But did you use Gen1 screen from ifixit?

Georgi Petkov -

This guide does not cover the 3G version at ALL.

BJones - Antwort

I’ve just done the 3G version - longer comment above.

No difference in the screen, and process if you’re just replacing the screen (without the assembly).

If your replacement is the screen+assembly, then probably extra steps to remove the modem and unplug the antenna. Also think there’s an extra antenna piece (http://www.powerbookmedic.com/xcart1/ima...) you may have to move across.

Pretty easy repair - 2 bits I found useful in this guide were:

1) How to get into it (removing the glued on bezel)

2) Confirmation on how to release the ribbon connectors (Some lift, some slide, and I’ve broken them before when I didn’t check/look carefully and guessed wrong).
