    • Using a spudger or plastic opening tool, gently pry the bezel from the screen. It is easier to start in the corners and work your way around the bezel.

    • Do not insert the spudger too far under the bezel; it could easily damage the screen.

Hello to you! Your guide helped me to understand what happened with my kindle. I've got a scratch on the screen but it seems not very deep; the scratch is on a plastic screen, mentioned on the 12-th step. Is it possible to replace this screen with the same one or simple screen protector can do? Thank you.

Can the LEDs simply be removed using this method? I think they are giving me a headache, even on the lowest setting...

Best way is to jailbreak the kindle and use KO reader. In that you can switch off the lights completely. This is a software hack but then you do not need to open the paperweight at all

Is it possible to replace the LEDs with warm white or even yellow (no blue light at all)?

Rob Noble - 回复

i'd also like to replace the LEDs with a warmer light -- but I wonder foremost: can I really detach and reattach the plastic (as it is glued onto the display?) without destroying the SMOOTH and EVEN lighting when I reattach it?
