I would love to know where I can get the replacement screen. Any links?

Ryan Lee - Ответить

Good guide, thanks, finally, if you need to remove the screen itself from the black plastic frame you can do this inserting the spudger carefully between the screen and the black plastic frame and gradually moving it all round the frame. It will help if you put a heated silicon gel pack over each side before trying to release it

I have a Kindle with half of screen responding to touch

Is the touch incliduded on the screen itself? Will replacing the screen help or is there another way to fix the touch?

Mohd. Nauman Khalid - Ответить

No, the touch circuitry is built into the motherboard.
