About a month ago my youngest Daughter thought it would be a good idea to sit on the diving board and hang her feet in our pool. When I saw her, I ran to the door to tell her that she needed to get her rear end away from the pool with the Kindle. Before I could get out the door it happened, she dropped it into the pool with it powered up into 9' of water. As I got to the edge of the pool, I saw the Kindle on the bottom, got the pool net and tried to fish it out. I guess it took me about 5 minutes to get it out. I stood it on edge and let the water drain out of it, then put in a bag full of rice for a day. I talked to Alan "Mh81" to find out what I could do to save it. He suggested that I open it up and disconnect the battery, rinse it out with alcohol and let it dry for a few days.
Today I put it back together and it POWERED UP!!
it will only run on the AC adapter, but not the battery so I will have to get another battery for it.
My Daughter is very revived to know her Mothers Kindle is alive and she doesn't have to buy a new one for Mom.
