Thanks to the OP for this thread. Nice to know that there are others who feel the same way about fixing things. I've just replaced the screen on my wife's kindle. Very rewarding. For me, removing the old screen was the trickiest bit as it was gummed down. I levered it up at a corner and slid a credit card into the gap and then down and around the four sides. Nothing snapped or shattered, but I'm very glad that the screen was broken to begin with!
