My Amazon Kindle screen is messed up

What a disappointment! I got back home after a day out and decided to have a nice read on my Amazon Kindle but when I switched it on I found that the screen was messed up.

I just don’t understand what could have caused this. I left it on my bed side table last night and picked it up again tonight to read and saw what you are all seeing in the photos.

Has this happened to anybody else? I have tried turning it completely off, I have hard booted it and still nothing. I love my Kindle and I am now so used to reading on it that I hate this situation.

I contacted Amazon Kindle support for help a few minutes ago. I hope they get back to me soon.

What a bummer!

Instapaper on the Amazon Kindle (3rd Generation)


I knew this could be done, but I just never found the time to actually do it. What am I talking about? Well I connected my account to my Kindle Device (3rd Gen) by following 3 simple steps I found on the Instapaper website. And guess what?

I can now read all my Instapaper saved posts, on my Kindle! That is soooo cool! I can read them on the perfect e-ink Amazon screen which is so much easier for the eyes and it is all delivered wirelessly to me automatically every day.

Make sure you choose the WiFi option instead of the 3G. You will have to pay Amazon for the 3G delivery, whereas the WiFi delivery is totally free!
