Amazon Kindle 4th Generation Screen Replacement

My next fix was hard work. Fitting a new screen in an Amazon Kindle 4th Generation. Not realising the screen is sealed in place using some super strong adhesive I had to spend a good few hours picking away at it to get it off. A wallpaper scraper proved to be useful, but you have to be forceful and gentle at the same time, so it took ages.

The glue I used to stick the new screen back down also needed to be left overnight, so overall this fix involved a lot of sleeping and waiting!

This fix is not for the faint hearted!
