Kindle PW3 bricked "DIAGS EXIT Please use serial port"

dear Forum Masters,

i have a Kindle PW3 successfully jailbroken.
it was working all okay for more than a year now.
recently i was not able to recharge it,
and when i opened the case, there was the big battery icon
with the exclamation mark.
i started to charge, then was able to enter diags.
tried to exit, and it got stuck with the
"DIAGS EXIT. Please use serial port" screen.
pressing the button for 20 secs makes the amber light flash 5 times,
the screen flashes 2 times. then nothing.

how can i make the machine work?
should i recharge it to 100% or on the contrary, let it go to 0%?
what else could i try?
can please somebody help me?

thanks in advance!

Whenever my Voyage did that, I was able to escape the loop each time by entering the following commands over ssh:

Code:
rm -f /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS
idme -d --bootmode main
reboot
Hopefully the same works for you

oh, thanks, i'll give it a try,
but how can i access ssh?
(it might be a silly question i know)
i have windows on my laptop and when i plug the usb, it claims some driver problem. i hope i can
fix that. but what comes after that? cygwin?
