Did you find any solution to this?

I have exactly the same problem. I assembled a paperwhite 2nd-gen screen with a paperwhite 1st-gen motherboard and get exactly the same error.

EDIT (typing mistake): it was a 2nd-gen motherboard and a 1st-gen screen

Oh sorry... I mistyped something. What I meant was i assembled a "paperwhite 1st-gen screen and a paperwhite 2nd-gen motherboard"

It's not good. Last week I bought this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/311350255136 (2nd gen screen to my 2nd gen motherboard) and I'm waiting to receive it. I hope not to get the same message because I don't know how to deal with it.

The message is "Battery invalid:-22.", correct? Did you try to disassemble and connect the battery again? Or a hard reset?

by

That's correct! Yes, I tried both. My current approach is to try it via serial connection. Maybe it's just a software-issue that could be fixed that way. Has your screen arrived yet?
