Inleiding

This guide shows you how to replace keyboard keys on an Amazon Kindle DX and uses the “previous page” key as an example. The “previous page” key has the less than symbol (<) on it and is located on the right side of the Amazon Kindle DX.

Prior to using this guide, test the keys to confirm that the keyboard is not working properly. To determine whether a key is faulty, press on the key to see if it performs the correct function. If not, the key is faulty. For example, when you press down on the “previous page” key of your Amazon Kindle DX and it doesn’t bring you to the previous page, the key is faulty.

This guide requires you to use the Phillips screwdriver, sizes PH0, PH00, and PH000, as well as a precision tweezer and opening tool. You must purchase a replacement key for the faulty key you are attempting to replace.
