Unhappy Screen flickers

Hello, everybody,
I bought a Pocketbook IQ 701, very happy so far, but when in use, the screen flickers evey 1 or 2 minutes from bright to dark, not completely dark, but hardly readable. Anyone had the same problem?????

If it's new I'd try to get a replacement ASAP

Most probably, your IQ is a lemon. Not an often thing, but s**t happens.

if you're running 2.1 try going back to 2.06. Or before that try a factory reset.
The ONLY time i've had that problem is when using Aikido as a reading app.
