Can a cracked screen be replaced on a kindle oasis?

Can a cracked screen be replaced on a kindle oasis? The kindle is working, text can be read pages turn etc., but the screen is cracked. Amazon would fix it if still in warranty but as it’s out of warranty they refuse and expect to buy new instead.

Hi @jacqui1234,

What is the model number of the tablet? (usually found on the back cover of the tablet)

Model number: S8IN4O

10th generation according to Amazon registration.

did you fix it ??

The earlier Kindle versions were reasonably priced, had responsive controls and were repairable. The newer versions have none of those attributes. If anyone has any experience with actually repairing a cracked Oasis screen, PLEASE post it here, and include the source for your parts. Thanks!!

Hi @jacqui1234

It may possibly be repaired but the problem is in finding the replacement parts.

I couldn't find any replacement parts at all for a Kindle S8IN40 (aka Kindle Oasis 3, Kindle Oasis 10th gen, Kindle Oasis (2019).

Also the only repair guide that I could find (and a failed one at that) was for a Oasis 9th Gen. This model certainly looks like that it wasn’t meant to be repaired.

Kindles are difficult with parts because each new model differs slightly from the previous, so parts aren’t readily interchangeable, between same series models or even different series e.g. Oasis, Paperwhite, Fire etc. That is why the model number is important and not just the model name as even “generations” can be confusing as to which one it exactly is.

Hopefully someone else may provide a better answer.

Thanks @jayeff, I really appreciate you looking into this. So frustrating that they’ve made this a disposable item.

both 9th and 10th generation are exact same dimensions, so glass top would be identical, only difference is 10th gen oasis has amber colored lights.

I also would be interested in finding someone that can replace the glass top, unfortunately looks like they will all end up in the trash as I don't see anyone who has succeeded in doing this. Hope Right to repair may some day rectify this.

You may have to be careful as even though the screen dimensions might be the same a lot of the time the screen flex cable connection is different between models.
