So is your menu faded? In the sun or just faded period? Either way I'd try a reset, and if that doesn't work I'd call CS
Hi there, I just received my Kindle 2 today. (actually a gift for my gf, but I thought I'd play around with it a bit ;P )
I have to say that I am very impressed with the most all aspects of the Kindle 2, and am now considering buing a second Kindle for myself.
I have, however, noticed a small issue already. When I am reading a book and press the 'Menu' button, the menu pops up -very- faded, almost sun-bleached looking. half of the characters aren't even completely displayed.
I can close the menu and everything else still looks perfect.
Is this normal, or are there any suggested solutions for this issue?
I'd hate to have to wait for a new Kindle to be shipped after just getting it :/
Pressing alt-g did fix the broken characters on the page, but did not solve the faded text. Alos, this fix only works if I'm already at the menu, each time that I re-open the menu, it is faded, etc. again.
I could have sworn that the first time I opened the menu, it faded whatever I was reading, and the menu popped up with the text being as dark as the normal reading text.
What happens now is that both the text I am reading and the menu appear faded, which doesn't make it very easy to see the menu.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I tested out the two files mentioned in that discussion on my own Kindle 2 and was able to confirm the error, so I've sent that information to our technicians.
It appears at this time to be related to Project Gutenberg .mobi files, as I've been unable to reproduce the error on some from other sources. If you've been able to see otherwise, however, please let us know.
You can write back to us using the link below. Again, if you do see this on any other .mobi files from other sources, please include a link to the file download so we can take a look at it.
I have also gotten this issue on Alice in Wonderland. Just wanted to let you know you aren't alone!Xestrix said:I just got this back from the Kindle Support:
