    • You will need to leave your Kindle powered on but in sleep mode.

    • If it has run out of power, you may want to plug it in first to ensure that the display is still intact and not cracked.

    • Gently pry the bezel off the screen using a plastic opening tool. Start at the corners and slide around the edges until you return to your starting point.

    • You may need plastic cards in between the bezel and rear cover if the former keeps sticking back down while you attempt to pry it up.

    • Be careful if using the metal spudger, as it can scratch the surface of the Kindle.

    • Now comes the hard part.

    • Your Kindle may not respond to the power button, and disconnecting the frontlight at this point will leave it in that unusable state.

    • Tap on or bring a magnet close to the hall effect sensor.

    • When the frontlight lights up, immediately unplug its connector.

    • If your Kindle remains awake for more than 3 seconds, you may now put it back to sleep by pressing the power button.

    • If not, you may have to repeat this step.

    • You will then need to cover pins 2 and 4 of the front light connector.

    • Cut a small piece of electrical tape that is thin enough to cover both pins, and apply it.

    • Reconnect the frontlight.

    • Be careful to not block pin 6 and/or any other pins, as it may result in the frontlight not receiving power and/or the device re-entering the closed cover state.

Brilliant! I just went through the process of disconnecting my hall sensor harness to fix an intermittent wake/lock issue. It worked, but i didn’t realize I’d nerfed the backlights until after getting it all reassembled. Thankfully found this guide and it worked perfectly.

Cover sensor was malfunctioning after a battery replacement so I followed your guide and it worked wonderfully! Hope to get another 8 years from this thing instead of dropping it in a landfill! Thanks

Very clever! Thank you. In the event, changing the battery on my 7th generation Kindle Paperwhite seems to have fixed the problem with the cover sensor. That triggered a hard reset, so it might be worth trying that before continuing with this mod.
