Kindle 2 or DX 5-Way Switch Replacement Part Number (s)
Are there part numbers for any of the switches on the right hand side of the unit? In particular the 5-way switch!
The Kindle's big brother, the DX sports a large 9.7" e-ink display that reads like real paper even in bright sunlight.
Hey Steve, it's hard to find those. Amazon doesn't manufacture this anymore but I was able to find one here. I don't think that there are part numbers for the 5-Way Switch.
-Let me know if this helps.
-Please accept this as the answer if it answered the question.
That ebay search revealed nothing useful.
I have been thinking of solving this common problem for everyone. I have two Kindle DX's, one with the rubber button cover still intact. I can take the "intact" button to the a Maker's Space here in Philly, and they can 3D print the mold. The company next door to them can injection mold the rubbery plastic.
Most of the cost is setup / engineering, so I would like to know if I made 100 of these covers, would I be able to sell them all, and recover my costs? I am hoping something like $25, if I get enough interest.
