i have an older style kindle that is no longer sold.  As far as i remember, it's at least 9 years old, and it one of the ones that have the page turn that is a non-physical button at the side (pagepress?)

i think it's called a kindle voyage.

It now has a cracked scren, causing me problems with changing text size and skipping pages.  Can those screens get repaired?

It's certainly possible.  A new screen, ordered from China, needn't cost much more than a fiver, including delivery and import VAT.  (Annoyingly, AB's server blocks links to the relevant website.  See the last paragraph of my post at 1847 here to see what it is and then search for 'kindle voyager touch screen' on that site).

Fitting it is a rather fiddly task though:

So you'll either need to be good at such things or prepared to pay a repair shop (probably quite a lot) to do the job.

It might work out a lot cheaper to bid for this on eBay:

This site quotes £149.00 to replace the screen on a Kindle Voyage:

A good answer from Buenchico, which appeared as I was giving mine.

good answers from both of you, thanks!

i have a specific reason for wanting the voyage rather than a newer model, so chrises answer might be my best bet.  I  do worry about battery ;ife tho in something so old (my current battery is "ok" ish)

bednobs, I had a battery replaced in one of my old Kindles - I think it cost about £20, supply and fit, at my local repair shop.  He'd never worked on an eReader before
