How is it without the SD Card? This is a known issue with Kobos, If you can, try different SD cards. I have a 16G Sandisk that works wonderfully.

With or without the SD card in it? If this is with the card, see #1

Yup part and parcel of eInk screens but you can alleviate this: Change when the pages refresh, factory set is to refresh every 6 pages, you can set this from 1 - 6. OPTIONS (3 horizontal bars upper right hand corner) >> Settings >> Reading Settings and change "Refresh the screen every:"

Known issue, PDFs weren't meant to be "reflowed"

Screen protector? If you mean the plastic sheet on the screen from the factory, that's only to protect the screen until you open the box, it's not meant as a permanent protection.
