It is your battery.

And on the K4 - the battery is glued in.

You are correct -
the K4 firmware **does** check the battery make/model.
So using an external battery is out.

Also it is possible the flash chip has been damaged.

The good news:
The new KT2 is the same price the K4 was sold at.

Thanks for your reply.
Since it sounds bad already, is there a point to connect other 3,7 V battery to existing one parallel and in this way to cheat smart firmware ?
I'm asking because if it is not battery then I'm stay with new one for $30 and prespective is to buy new kindle for next $100.

No, because old battery would still report as dead.

Sell the old one for "spare parts" -
that will reduce the cost to you of a new KT2.

Be certain to go to your Amazon account and de-register it before selling it.

I'm so disappointed reading your replies :-)

But must admit - you got right.

Thanks
