hi there thank youfor your helping tutorial.

i just bought some used Kindle in order to buy at my shop. but i have a problem with some Kindle that i disassembled in order to have some spare parts and especially with the screen.

even after removing the screen it will stay frozen, even if i change the motherboard with a new one it will stay on the last screen shown.

Might you give me any explanation about the issue? and is that a way to reset the screen in order to use it as spare parts for other kindles?

Thank you so much for this tutorial! Thanks to it I was able to replace a (physically) broken display. I un-assembled the entire device, let it rest until the shipment from China arrived and re-assembled it. It works flawlessly again and looks like new. One word of caution, though: The new display came without frame and removing the old display from the frame (both are pretty tightly glued together) resulted in quite some patient work and many pieces of broken glass (even with having it all heated). Anyway it worked out like a charm at the end!

For anyone curious, the panel number for the PW3 is ED060KD1. You can use this to look it up on eBay etc.

Do you have to take the broken screen out of the frame and then put the new one in? Is it difficult?
