    • Starting just above one of the page-turning buttons, pry open the back of the device using a pry tool, or similar plastic opening tool.

    • Do not attempt to pry directly on the page turning buttons. This will damage the buttons.

    • If you are having trouble getting an initial gap to pry from, run the flat edge of the pry tool along the front-to-back plate seam until it slips into a gap.

I went to mpfproducts.com and ordered my new battery which came in today. I’ve changed out the battery and my Kindle 3 is now charging. YAHOO!!!

Where did you get the battery? I couldn’t find it on Amazon. Do you have a model number for the battery? Thanks.

The old Amazon link has been removed. There’s now a link at the top of this guide to an eBay vendor that stocks the battery. Good luck!
