The device is out of warranty. The problem is that the USB charge point on the device is not working. So, the battery cannot be charged. I have tried different cables but it make no difference. At this point I would like to know is it cost effective to get it repaired? If it can be repaired?
The other question is as I cannot recharge the device should I de-register the device before the battery runs out completely?
Hey there @GDP. It is probably worth checking out a local phone/CEX shop where they often offer repairs. I fear that the cost may work out more than buying a replacement. It may be worth considering the cheaper "basic" Kindle now that it too has a front light, but if you are used to the high quality Paperwhite it may be not good enough for you.
You may also want to consider calling Amazon on their HELP link on every Amazon web page. They may (doubtful) be able to offer you a special offer on either a replacement refurbished kindle or a percentage discount off a new one.
You can de-register any Kindle/Fire device from the web at any time. Your account/Manage your content and devices/Devices Tab/Select your device/ select De-Register.
Hope tha above helps.
