Step 4: Dismantle the Amazon Kindle
But first, we have to break it down into its base bits.
Compared to the Sony, this is a little easier. After you remove the battery and screws from the back, you need a tiny flat head to pry open the edges. It's best to start in a corner and work your way around the bottom. After the bottom is open, the top usually lifts out.
There's fewer little bits to lose- just disconnect the flimsy metal/plastic grounding thingy, SD Card Reader slot, the e-ink screen (located under neath the SD slot), keyboard, power switch, etc.
It's helpful to take some pictures so you know how everything was laid out originally.
After that's removed, you can remove the main board, leaving the faceplate, screen, and metal frame.
Be careful removing the frame and screen, as part of it is glued to the faceplate.
