Hi,

I changed my Kindle today as it had a problem with the quality of text when going from the Home screen to any page - but the second one is the same. With this problem three lines of text a quarter of the way down the page is lighter and less defined that the rest of the page. If you advance a page and then return, the whole page is ok, it only happens when going from the Home screen.  It occurs on every page of every book, including the User Guide.

My wife's Kindle doesn't behave this way. Has anyone else experienced or heard about this issue?

Edit: I realised that this area of the screen lines up with the top fixing of the (Amazon leather) cover. Could this be the issue..?

Thanks for the reply...

Yes I have a K3 and I did mean the top hinge.  I have tried the K3 without the cover and it still shows the problem, which suggests its not the cause. I also updated the software and did a factory reset both to no avail.

It looks like need to change this second one...

I don't think it's ghosting, I have seen that on both K3s I've had and my wife's. This is the actual definition of the text on two to three lines, I will take a picture and post it but it looks something like this below (imagine the bold text is the normal font):

Calescere occurrere mei respondeo expendere nec hoc fruebatur detrahere. Spatium invenit ego iii quomodo quaeque nam vix deceret. De ea intelligo supponant du concludam. Hominem cum qui uti hoc incipit creatus. Vi cumque genera si optima. Mea una attingebam indubitati faciliorem vim. Alligatus spectatum continent id separatum de ii cerebella remotiora. Ibidem varias finiti ii certas factas lumine an ha. Obfirmata referenda dat quibusnam vul vos dum confirmet. Tempus mentem debere lor cum sacras volunt capram. Labefactat to percipitur in ac realitatem ii. Videantur admittere ibi sum eae cui corporeas. Sim nostris securum qua numerus vestiri corpora revolvo. Momenti equidem nullibi vi ut in veritas ac efficta. Magnis deinde alicui maxima ad si at. Tot sex deo prona pauci favis. Dare to visa erit eo. Ullo ii regi rogo more sive et bono. Sufficiunt cohibendam imo respondeam hos facultatem hic. Enatare ii assequi fingere ad an fecisse ne. Sensisse gi singulas perfecta excitari potuisse ea ad cadavere. Aliisque nul fit existimo sim concipio quadrati.

Two lines of the text are lighter and less defined that the rest of the whole page. If you advance the page and go back the problem disappears.

I'll get a picture uploaded, hopefully that might help.

Thanks history_lover, what you have described is exactly the problem. After replying to your post I realised that I'd misinterpreted it :-[.  I have checked my K3 and get the same results as you. As my books are in Collections, I only currently have a short list in each hence why this effect appeared towards the top of my screen. But today I removed everything from Collections and managed to replicate the situation in your latest post - the "ghosting" (or whatever it's best called) appears in the same position as the book was selected from on the Home page.

Ok, this raises the question, is it a fault with the K3?  The effect isn't as pronounced compared to the first K3 I had, on that one it really stood out which I why I exchanged it.

the text that hadn't been covered by the Menu box goes lighter (or maybe the other way around, I can't remember).
I haven't noticed this, but I have found that whilst this happens as you describe when going from the Home page, on my K3 it is definitely more pronounced in the top third of the screen that the rest.

I'm in two minds now... Is this how the K3 works or is it a problem? As my wife's K3 doesn't do this, maybe it's variable or a problem? Perhaps I should see what Amazon have to say on this?
