Kindle 10th Generation Backlight dead

I have a Kindle 10th Generation, but don’t know which Paperwhite generation this corresponds to. At any rate everything works on it but the backlight. Where do I get a replacement backlight? I have an older Paperwhite but the touchscreen doesn’t work. However, the backlight on that one is fine. Can I cannibalize the backlight on my older PW? Will it work on the newer ones?

Hi @demosophist

What is the model number that is on the back cover of the device?

With Kindles it is easier to go with the model number rather than the model name and generation when trying to locate parts etc.

Backlights can sometimes be incorporated in the display and are not a separately replaceable part.

It could also be a blown backlight fuse on the systemboard or a loose display flex cable connection as well that is the problem and not the backlights themselves.

Well, the model # for the 10th generation (barely readable with a magnifying glass) is, or seems to be: PQ94WIF (purchased in 2019).

Model # for the older one (5th Generation?) is EY21 or FY21. Nearly impossible to read.

The serial number prefix for the 10th Generation is G000T6

Your model is known as a Paperwhite 4 or a Paperwhite 10th generation (not to be confused with a Paperwhite 4th Gen model).

The EY21 is a Paperwhite (#1 I think) 5th Generation model.

I would be very surprised if the screens were compatible as Kindles change a lot between Generations and more so if there is a gap of 2 or 3 generations between them, but I may be wrong.

I can't find any parts for your model but an option to consider perhaps and if the price suits is to purchase a donor tablet and scavenge the parts from it. (example only).

I also couldn't find a screen replacement video or guide for your model, but here's a video that shows how to replace the battery which may help, at least as far as getting into the tablet.

Around 1981 I had the idea of producing something like Kindle, when I was working with EPROMS. The idea is that you wouldn’t have the inconvenience of buying books all the time. But the fact that these devices break down and can’t be repaired conveniently, and cost an arm and a leg, it was probably cheaper to just buy books. At least they don’t stop working, though they will fall apart after 5 to 10 decades. I strongly suspect that this programmed obsolescence exists just to drive inflation, because without it we’d have a deflationary economy and the banking system wouldn’t be able to strangle the public. I just don’t feel like buying more of this expensive crap.

Libraries are cheaper still ;-)
