The 1949 : DEAD usb ID is what my kindle gives me when I try to boot up with no battery.

If you have as much money as time, you could order a replacemnt battery, for about $5, and see if that helps after you get the device open, but chances are the logic board is also damaged.


https://www.powerbookmedic.com/Amazo...5-p-95758.html

That site also sells logic boards for about $25.


So if you have the time, you can consider buying a replacement battery and a replacement logic board for about $30 plus shipping, which is what I did when my PW3 went swimming in the pool with me.

I order them separately, so I had to pay shipping twice, but I think they charge shipping by the item anyway, so it would have cost the same.


They have a video on how to take it apart: https://www.powerbookmedic.com/manual.php?id=214

Like knc1 said, for the "flat pry tool", I used my costco card, guitar picks are popular tools too. He spends a lot of time prying very carefully in the video, but it was not nearly as hard as he makes it look when I did it.

Or you can pay $20-$40 more than that to do the trade in, and get a new one from amazon. I wanted to keep "MY" kindle, even though it had replacement parts.
