Many thanks go out to kind readers who sent replacement batteries for my old Kindles. I try to keep these going, especially because they still work, but also because they have built in text to speech ability.
This project is not so hard as the digital camera repair.
In its cover.
The problem with this gadget is not that the screen doesn’t work (I have another Kindle with that problem) but that the poor ol’ batt’ry won’t keep a charge.
The hardest part of the project was to get the back cover off the frame. With somet jimmying and jabbing, it came away … in one piece.
Gee I wonder where the battery is.
Two little cup-like thingummies must not be lost.
The rest is pretty obvious. Pop it in, twist in the screws, close it up.
It works well and holds a charge!
