My Kindle 1 just fell from my bed, only about 2.5 feet on CARPET.  Despite the small height and material, the screen is completely illegible.

What should I do? A hard reset won't do anything and it doesn't have any warranty left.


I greatly appreciate any help

Geez. . .that is totally horrible. . . .I feel for you.  You can try CS first:  before Christmas if someone called with a self-caused damaged Kindle, they'd offer a replacement at a discount.  That option may still exist.  If not, Luv's got a good idea if you're not wanting to commit to a K2.

The first thing is to call CS.  They will step you through some things to try.  Then, if that doesn't work, you can review your options.

Keep us posted!

Thanks for all the responses everyone! ;D

Well, I've had a pretty rough start with my Kindle.

I actually bought it off craigslist for $190 - It looked just like new!

This afternoon, like I said, it suffered a 2-3 ft. fall and never functioned again.

They did, however, offer me a brand new kindle for $180, which I took since for the 24 hrs that I had the Kindle - it was incredible.

It just makes me mad to think that I spent the same amount of money on a Kindle 1 that could have gotten me a Kindle 2  :-[
