I was chatting with YX and said “When I come home, the Kindle screen will be there and I will be able to fix my kindle”. And so it was!
haha.. took a while and some rubbing alcohol to rub out the sticky glass chips in adhesive. To my surprise it came out alive from the whole exercise!
Now the screen is just slightly tilted which drives me mad because I cannot risk cracking the fragile screen while removing and straightening it or accidentally peeling out the layer that provides the front-lighting. There’s just too much adhesive on the bezel to be able to peel out the screen again 🙁 I’ll just have to convince myself that it’s uniquely mine now.
Time to cross this off from the side-projects list.
