Place the device face down on a clean cloth or another smooth surface.
  • Place the device face down on a clean cloth or another smooth surface.

  • In the following steps, you will need to apply some force to your device. If your device is on a rough surface, you may scratch the screen.

  • Insert the plastic opening tool between the device’s front and back panels. You might need to wiggle the tool up and down to wedge it in the gap.

  • Maneuver the tool around the device until the back unclips from the front panel.

I wasn't sure that I would be able to fix my kindle. I did purchase another kindle, which was alright. I wanted a second kindle so with the purchase and my old one know fixed I am really glad. I feel if I have any future problems I will be able to fix it myself.

Be careful not to damage the camera lens as you remove the camera. Gently pull the camera up and out of the device. As you pull, unclip the black and white connector with orange tape by popping it off at its base. Gently pull the camera up and out of the device.
