When dimming, a long press turns off the light.

Yes, I know, I've read the manual. But the previous poster states as a categorical fact that the light can't be turned off, so he appears to be saying that the information in the manual is incorrect.

Really, Harry, didn't he post before the manual was available? Or maybe he didn't see the manual? He had some wrong information, I don't think it was malicious or anything.

Maybe. But still, he was stating "the light can't be turned off" as if it was a fact - and that is plain wrong.

The statement "I don't think that the light can be turned off" (or so) would have been an entirely different story - and more sensible at the time that it was posted.

This is an extract from Amazon.com homepage.

Adjust the Screen Light

The screen light provides the convenient option to read in low light conditions. Kindle Paperwhite's E Ink display provides a crisp and glare-free reading experience with or without the light.
To use the screen light, select while reading.

Slide your finger along the scale to adjust screen brightness.

Tap and hold the - to turn off the light.

Tap and hold + to turn the light on at maximum brightness.

Tip: A lower setting works best for rooms with low lighting, and a higher setting for rooms with bright lighting.


The video is also nice to watch!

Question Questions about the software

Hi all,

the model hasn't arrived our country yet, so I can't test it on my own. Yet, I'd like to order it over the net, so I want to clear some important issues to me. I'll appreciate your help:
  1. Can I make an hierarchy of folders in the device, as on PC? For instance, 'Sci-fiction -> Zelazny -> Amber chronicles -> all the books'.
  2. Does it have a Russian interface? Can I add a support for it?
  3. Can I add my own dictionaries? What format is supported?

Thanks!

I have a KPW. The light CANNOT be turned off. If you press and hold the - symbol it goes totally down to zero but the leds are still dimly on and in a dark room there is still a slight glow visible.

Hence, based on my observation of my unit, the manual is wrong or perhaps defines "off" as "dim enough not to matter."

What Stingo said, the light CAN NOT BE TURNED OFF. Tap and - just immediately switches it to the lowest setting which is not off. It is a fact ixtab and just plain right.

ixtab posted before the Paperwhites were released and, going by what we knew then, he wasn't wrong. It was the Kindle user guide that was wrong.

White things reflect more light that black things.
Black things absorb more light than white things.
